David Warner, who is an automatic selection in all three formats, has grueling schedule up head, but Cricket Australia said it is not concerned about his workload.

 

Cricket Australia spokesman, Pat Howard sounded comfortable with Warner’s projected workload for the coming months.

 

The 25-year-old was rested from Sydney Thunder’s Tuesday night’s game against Brisbane Heat after he felt dizziness from a blow on the helmet during his breathtaking Test knock of 180 against India.

 

”The main workload concerns tend to be with bowlers and all-rounders. David does work harder than the vast majority of batsmen because of the way he trains and fields – he is a high-energy and active fielder – but we don’t have any workload concerns with where David is at,” Howard was quoted saying by Sydney Morning Herald.

 

Warner aims to take short breaks after the IPL, which finishes in late May, and the five-game ODI series in England in June and July.

 

”I think after the IPL I get three weeks off. Generally I’ll take some time off with some mates and do my stuff, and after the one-day series in England we’ve got a three-week break as well,” he said.
