Warner suffering dizzy spells

David Warner is suffering from dizzy spells after being struck on the head by a bouncer from Indian paceman Umesh Yadav during the third Test but the Australian opener says he is “fit” to play the fourth match starting here on January 24.

The destructive left-hander was hit on his left ear and that’s why Cricket Australia had refused to release him for Sydney Thunder’s Big Bash match against the Brisbane Heat last night.

However, Warner now has been cleared by CA medical staff though he had suffered a blow on his elbow as well.

“I’m a bit battered and bruised. I might have played if I wasn’t hit on the head and the elbow,” Warner told Sky Sports Radio.

“It was more my call with the physio Alex (Kountouris) saying it’s better off that I rest and recover from the injury so I’m fit for the next Test. I’m still getting a little bit dizzy. It was a good knock, I should have kept my eye on the ball,” he added.

Warner had scored an attacking 180 in Australia’s comprehensive an innings and 37-run win at Perth.

Meanwhile, Warner said he expected the Indians to show some aggression in the fourth and final match starting January 24.

“There might be a lot of people in their shed wondering how they’re going to score runs,” the 25-year-old was quoted as saying by the the Australian Associated Press. “In my mind there is probably only one player (in form) and that’s Sachin Tendulkar who looks like he’s using a sight screen when he comes out to bat.”
