David Warner will play in the second Ashes Test despite a bruised rib while Jhye Richardson has been confirmed as Josh Hazlewood’s replacement for the day-night encounter at Adelaide. Warner did not field throughout England’s second innings at the Gabba and did not bat during the short chase after copping a blow from Ben Stokes on the second day. X-rays cleared him of a break and Australia had enough confidence in his fitness to confirm their playing eleven the day before the match.
While Jhye Richardson has ‘seriously scary’ pace, his consistency and control is winning rave reviews from his Test teammates #Ashes | @alintaenergy pic.twitter.com/LcDyZqCbXu
