David Warner has probably played his final Test in India. During the match, he took a few hits from bouncers from Mohammad Siraj and failed a concussion test. His concussion sub for the remainder of the Test was Mathew Renshaw.

As it turns out, Warner also suffered a hairline fracture in his elbow from one of Siraj’s bouncers on opening day.

“He got a knock to the arm and then the head, I think the head made him a little bit weary at the moment and couldn’t come out to field,”

Australian teammate Usman Khawaja had said at the end of first day’s play.

Australia’s legend disappointed with David Warner performance

He just doesn’t look himself at the moment, David Warner,”

former Australian batter Michael Hussey told Fox Sports.

“Warner looked tentative … He’s just very late on that ball, not looking for the short ball at all.”

Allan Border too had his say on the matter.

“The footwork was stagnant, wasn’t it. Very un-Warner-like, to get into these sorts of positions at the crease. He really had his struggles.”

“Warner was struck on the helmet by fast bowler Mohammed Siraj in the tenth over of play,”

Cricket Australia said in a statement.

“He subsequently demonstrated symptoms and failed a concussion test.“ David Warner will now follow the graduated return to sport protocols ahead of the third Test in Indore in line with Cricket Australia guidelines.”

It’s a good opportunity for Renshaw, just out of the blue,” Border said. “It might be a bit like Marnus Labuschagne with (Steve) Smith in England – comes in and takes the chance. Hopefully that’s what happens.”

Mark Taylor gave Warner one out of ten marks at the end of the first Test match.

“Davey in India … it’s not his favourite place to play. That’s an understatement. He’s averaging 22 in India, where he doesn’t have bounce or pace on the ball. He hasn’t had that in the past in India and he’s not going to get it at all in this series, but he’s going to have to find a way to conquer batting in India if he stays in the side. India is a unique place to play,”

Taylor had told Channel Nine.
