Warner injury mars win over South Africa

CRICKET: David Warner could be out for up to six weeks after scans revealed he broke a finger attempting a catch in Australia’s win over South Africa on Sunday.

Warner was man of the match with a knock of 109 in the 36-run ODI success in the West Indies.

The vice-captain was forced out of the clash with the home side in St Kitts overnight and could miss the rest of the series, which ends on June 29.

“It’s obviously disappointing to be sidelined given the form I’ve been in and given the important stage the tri-series is at, but it’s always important to look at the positives,” Warner (pictured) said.

Australian team doctor Geoffrey Verrall said Warner’s injury would be assessed to determine if surgery was required.

“Should that not be the case then David is likely to be available to return to play in somewhere between two and six weeks,” he added.
