He suffered in the second ODI against India at the SCG in November that forced him to miss the remainder of the limited-overs matches and the first two Tests.

Now the Left hander batsman is set to take the field in the day-night clash at the Adelaide Oval on 04 March (Thursday) in what will be his first 50-over match for the Blues since October 2019.
Warner comes in for Dan Hughes, who has hurt his shoulder, while Steve Smith will remain sidelined with an elbow injury. Nick Larkin will replace Smith in the one-day squad.
Pat Cummins will lead the Blues for the second time having starred in his first match as captain against Victoria at North Sydney Oval last month.
“We all know Davey’s quality as a player in all formats and it’s great to see him back for the Blues for this game,” said Blues coach Phil Jaques.
“He has worked really hard on his rehab and has been great around the group when he’s been at training.
“It will be fantastic to have his experience around the team over the coming weeks.”
