Australian opening batsman David Warner has been suspended by his country until the opening Test match of the Ashes series. Warner was alleged to have attacked Joe Root in Walkabout Bar in Birmingham in the early hours of Sunday morning.
The left-hander was also fined £7,000 following the incident. Warner will now miss the rest of the Champions Trophy and Australia’s warm up matches in their preparations for the Ashes.
Despite being available for the first Test on 10th July it is unlikely that Australia will pick the aggressive opening batsman who would have had no match practice in the run up to the game.
The news comes as another blow to Australia who have suffered in recent times after ‘homeworkgate’ in India and more recently Warner himself was fined for abusive tweets towards certain parts of the Australian media.
