Warner after suffering a groin injury is set to miss the final ODI against India

The Australian think tank would be burdened with the task of finding an opening batsman after David Warner ruled out of the remaining limited-overs rubber against India. The left-hand batsman suffered a groin injury during the second ODI in Sydney after which he was taken to the hospital for scans. Ahead of the final ODI, Australia is in search of a player who could fill the void of Warner.

Finch in a recent press conference admitted that any team will weaken in Warner’s absence. He added that the management hasn’t picked a player yet but they do have options in the form of wicket-keeper batsman Alex Carey, Matthew Wade and Marnus Labuschagne where they could open the innings along with the skipper.

Finch also added that the team’s middle-order has been performing well over the recent past. This form has cleanly reciprocated in the series and with the Australian now being 2-0 in the series gives them the luxury of experimenting with the team during the final match.

Speaking about the significance of Warner inside the team Finch told him as an all-time great in ODI and T20 cricket. The skipper believes there aren’t many players such as Warner to have graced the sport. So, any team that indeed Warner is not a part of will eventually become slightly weaker but Finch assured they have guys that can step and contribute heavily in that role.
