David Warner ruled out: Australia’s quest to make a comeback in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Test series against India has taken a turn with the news that veteran opener David Warner has been ruled out of the second Test in Delhi due to injury.

Warner’s current form is a concern for Australia as well, with the usually dynamic left-hander having failed to hit all three of his runs against India this tour and has just one hundred to his name since the start of 2020.
