David Warner has been officially dominated out of the Boxing Day Test on the MCG and alongside Sean Abbott is getting better one by one farfar from the primary Australian squad after their arrival into Melbourne to keep away from being trapped in New South Wales because of the Covid-19 outbreak on Sydney’s northern beaches.

While Warner had first of all was hoping to get better in time for Boxing Day from the groin pressure he suffered for the duration of the second one ODI on the SCG remaining month, his development has now no longer been fast sufficient to permit him to be fit.

At the identical time, biosecurity regulations round Warner and Abbott, having left Sydney to journey to Melbourne on December 19, imply they’ll now no longer be capable of input the hub occupied with the aid of using the primary squad till after the Boxing Day Test concludes on December 30.

“David Warner and Sean Abbott will rejoin the Australian men’s Test squad ahead of the third Test against India,” a CA spokesman said. “Warner and Abbott spent time in Sydney outside the team’s bio-secure hub to recover from injury. While neither player has been in a specific ‘hotspot’ as outlined by NSW Health, Cricket Australia’s biosecurity protocols do not allow them to rejoin the squad in time for the Boxing Day Test.

“Warner has not fully recovered from a groin injury suffered in the ODI Series against India and would not have been available for the second Test match, while Abbott has recovered from a calf strain sustained during Australia A’s tour match against India and would have been available for selection for the Boxing Day Test.

“The pair travelled from Sydney to Melbourne to continue their rehabilitation given the changing public health situation in Sydney at the time.”
