Veteran Australian opener David Warner has been subbed out of the ongoing second Border-Gavaskar Trophy Test against India due to a concussion, with Matthew Renshaw returning to the side as a substitute.
On Day 1 of the Test, Warner suffered blows to his elbow and helmet while facing Mohammed Siraj during his 44-ball stay at the crease. He made only 15 runs and added to his string of low scores. Last year, Warner scored only 571 runs in 20 innings in 11 Tests, with a hundred and two fifties, which included a double hundred at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) during his 100th Test. This year, he has scored only 36 runs in four innings in three Tests.
The second blow, which came off at the top edge left him with a concussion and he is allowed to be replaced mid-match in the playing eleven as per the International Cricket Council (ICC) rules.
Renshaw has batted in the middle-order in two of his recent Test matches but started his international career as an opener, a position which he still plays in domestic cricket
After the end of the first day’s play, opener Usman Khawaja said that Warner was not feeling a hundred per cent.

“He is a little bit weary at the moment. A knock to the arm and then to the head has made him a little bit weary at the moment,” said Khawaja as quoted by
