David Warner returns after broken thumb

Australia opener David Warner has returned to the nets ahead of the first test match against New Zealand at the Gabba on November 5.

The 29-year-old suffered his broken left thumb on September 4 during the second ODI against England.

Warner had posted a short-video on Instagram during his net session in Sydney

“I had an x-ray this morning and got some good news,” the left-handed batsman said on Friday.

“The break has started to come together and I’m going to have a little light hit on Tuesday morning with just some underarm throws and stuff and then get into it on Thursday, Friday.

“I will just manage it as well as I can, I’ll probably face bowlers the day before we leave for (the Shield match in) Adelaide.

“Just so I don’t have the recurrence of being hit by one of the bowlers on that thumb.

“But there’s a very, very realistic chance I’m going to be playing in that Shield match and positive signs.”
