Sydney: David Warner has been ruled out of the opening match of Australia’s four-Test series against India due to injury.

The opening batsman injured his adductor muscle during Australia’s victory in the second game of their one-day international series against India on November 29.

He will now miss the first Test at the Adelaide Oval, starting on December 17, with Australia head coach Justin Langer saying he hopes to have a “fully-fit David Warner at his absolute best in Melbourne” for the Boxing Day Test.

In a statement, Warner said: “I feel I have made great progress in a short amount of time and its best for me to stay here in Sydney to continue working on getting back to full fitness.

“The injury feels a lot better but I need to be able to satisfy in my own mind and to my team-mates that it is 100-per-cent ready for Test-match conditions. That includes running between the wickets and being agile in the field.

“Right now I feel I am short of being able to play at peak fitness and another 10 days will make a difference.”

Will Pucovski is a contender to replace Warner at the top of the order and make his debut in Adelaide.
