Injured David Warner to miss Australia's two-Test tour of Bangladesh

Melbourne: Cricket Australia says Test opener and newly-appointed vice-captain David Warner will miss the team's two-Test tour of Bangladesh because of a fractured left thumb.

Warner sustained the injury while batting at Lord's in the second one-day international against England on Sept. 5. He won't require surgery and is hoping to be fit for Australia's home series against New Zealand in November.

Australia play Bangladesh in a three-day tour match in Fatullah beginning Oct. 3 before Tests in the coastal city of Chittagong from Oct. 9 and in the capital Dhaka beginning Oct. 17.

It will be the third Test series between the two countries and the first since Australia's 2-0 victory in Bangladesh in 2006.
