David Warner could get a chance, says Michael Clarke
David Warner may get the chance to renew hostilities with England sooner than expected after Australia captain Michael Clarke backed him to return for the first Ashes Test.
Warner’s whole series was in doubt when it came to light he had punched England’s Joe Root in a Birmingham night-spot following a Champions Trophy meeting between the sides at Edgbaston.
“I think he’s served his punishment. His punishment was no cricket up to the first Test match,” said Clarke after his side settled for a draw against Worcestershire to complete their preparations.
