Australian Cricketer David Warner will miss the first test match against India played in Adelaide due to the groin injury sustained in the 2nd ODI on November 29. "Right now I feel I am short of being able to play at peak fitness and another 10 days will make a difference," says Warner. However, Australian coach Justin Langer has confirmed Warner's return in the second test in Melbourne.
