Australia have been given an injury scare ahead of Thursday’s Ashes after David Warner limped out of practice.
The Australia opener picked up a nasty bruise to his inner thigh during nets practice on Monday afternoon after being struck by Michael Neser at Edgbaston.
Warner is still with the Australia squad and has been icing his bruised thigh in order for the bruising to go down.

The tourists will be hoping Warner’s injury is nothing bad as they gear up for Thursday morning’s start in Birmingham at Edgbaston.
Warner is set to return to Test duties against their old rivals England alongside fellow exiles Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft.
Warner and Smith were suspended for 12 months for their part in the ball tampering scandal that rocked Australian cricket last year, while Bancroft served the shortest ban of nine months.
And the trio will be desperate to ensure Australia win their first Ashes series on English soil since 2001.
