Controversy Erupts as David Warner Calls Cricket Australia's Post on His Injury 'Fake'

After losing to India in the first ODI, Australia made a strong comeback in the second game winning by 10 wickets on the back of an impressive performance from pace spearhead Mitchell Starc bagging a fifer.

However, one thing that remained similar in both the games was the expulsion of opening batter David Warner who as previously mentioned was forced out to a 'corked quad'.

Also, Warner wasn't able to feature in the last two Tests of the series as well after suffering an injury in the second Test after getting ruled out due to a concussion during the game.

But controversy has erupted after the 36-year-old himself posted a story on his Instagram handle calling his injury news fake. The biggest problem is that the news was published by none other than Cricket Australia, the official website of the board.

This left the Australian-born fuming as he wrote #fakenews and #incorrect along with a screenshot of the story.

Another big question is if his injury concerns were fake then what could be the possible reason for his non-selection. The reason for this is still unknown and only time will tell whether he was dropped or there's some other issue that hasn't surfaced as yet.

The left-hander's poor form might have prompted the management to look for further options as they tried Mitchell Marsh to open for them in both games which proved quite successful.

The third and final game of the series will be played at MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on 22nd March.
