David Warner out of final two India Tests with elbow fracture

Due to a fractured left elbow, David Warner will miss the final two Tests of the Border-Gavaskar series. On the first day of the Delhi Test, the Australia opener was hit by a Mohammed Siraj delivery. Although he batted for 15 runs in Australia's first innings, subsequent scans revealed a hairline fracture.

The 36-year-old sustained a second blow to his helmet, resulting in a mild concussion that necessitated Matt Renshaw's substitution for the visitors. Warner will now return to Sydney to continue his recovery, and it is anticipated that he will return before the ODI series begins on March 17.

Even before his injury, Warner continued to struggle in India, scoring just 1, 10, and 15 in his three appearances. His 19 Test innings average in India decreased to 21.78 after the three errors.

In his absence, Australia started the second innings with Travis Head, a dynamic batter who scored a brisk 43 runs. Head will remain an opener in the event that Warner is unable to play, head coach Andrew McDonald stated on Monday (February 20).

"We did discuss prior to our arrival here that, in the event that we were to lose an opening batter, we would look to put up Trav there. "We feel that he can get off to the fast starts that he showed in the subcontinental conditions," McDonald stated.

"We don't see [Head] as an opener in all conditions; he's more subcontinental and falls back to the middle order in other conditions."

It is unlikely that batting reinforcements will be sought by Australia, who have also lost Josh Hazlewood to an Achilles injury.

Cricket Betting: Picking wisely which games to wager on

The majority of sportsbooks enable bettors to wager on as many cricket games as they'd like. Players should, however, only play games that they are familiar with. A team is more likely to win, for instance, while playing against a team that is statistically weaker. It may be wise to gamble on the squad with more talent. The odds provided for these games, meanwhile, might not be all that appealing. So, it's crucial that players learn how to pick the best games.
