Chennai: Feb 20, 2013

The suspense over David Warner‘s availability for the first Test against India ended on Wednesday with Australia naming him in the playing XI, which will also see all-rounder Moises Henriques making his debut in baggy green.

The announcement for the February 22-26 match followed days of speculation over the availability of the big-hitting opener who was recovering from a thumb injury. He is now preparing to bat with a splint.

Warner had yesterday said he was confident of recovering from the injury before the start of first match.

Warner will in likelihood open the batting with the solid Ed Cowan, followed by Phil Hughes, Watson and Clarke in the middle-order.

“I’m confident of playing the first Test. I caught about 50 per cent (balls during practice) and there was a slight pain. And I would be using a guard to protect my thumb in the Tests,” Warner had said.

The tourists will, however, surprisingly field only one frontline spinner in Nathan Lyon, with captain Michael Clarke and Warner expected to share the burden on slow-bowling front.

Australia: David Warner, Ed Cowan, Phil Hughes, Shane Watson, Michael Clarke, Matthew Wade, Moises Henriques, Mitchell Starc, Nathan Lyon, James Pattinson, Peter Siddle
