David Warner to play for NSW in injury comeback

Sydney: Australia opener David Warner will play for New South Wales against South Australia in a Sheffield Shield match from Wednesday as he strives to prove his fitness for the first cricket test against New Zealand.

Warner hasn't played since Sept. 5 when he suffered a broken thumb in a one-day international against England. While he has batted in the nets, his appearance for New South Wales in the day-night match at Adelaide may determine if he plays for Australia in the first test at Brisbane from Nov. 5.

Australia captain Steve Smith will lead a New South Wales lineup including test bowlers Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood, and wicketkeeper Peter Nevill.
