David Warner set for southern Africa match practice

Thursday, 11 July 2013 - 13:01


Australia batsman David Warner will travel to south Africa to gain match practice with his country's A side.


Warner was suspended and fined after he punched England's Joe Root at a bar in Birmingham in early June.


The 26-year-old was banned until the start of the first Ashes Test match, which began on Wednesday.


He will join the Australia A side for a tour of Zimbabwe and South Africa, but remains a part of the Ashes squad.
