The Australian international cricketer was never in doubt about playing the game despite carrying a bruised palm from catching.

Warner registered 66 off 88 balls, which played a vital role for Australia and gave Australia a flying start in the second Ashes Test at Lord’s.

Warner’s half-century continued an encouraging first half of the England tour, even though a major score proved elusive.
He also made 43 in the first innings against India and 36 in the second innings at Edgbaston last week.

The 36-year-old revealed that he had his hand in an ice bucket all afternoon.

“It’s copped a battering the last two games and in the nets, so it’s little bit sore at the moment, bit of a bruise but I’ll just see how we go after the game and I think we’ll examine it then,” Warner said.

“At the moment it’s quite tender.” [I was] never in doubt, [but] it was quite sore. Initially it was more in the palm, I’ve got a hotspot where my thumb is and every time the ball hits the bat it just jars. Then today I got hit back in the knuckle which I think Mohammed Shami hit me [on] in that World Test Championship.

“I’ve had my hand in an ice bucket all afternoon, so we’ll play it by ear and assess it after the game.”

With his hand injury being more serious than thought, he is now certain to see out the Ashes tour and looks likely to get the Sydney farewell against Pakistan early next year that he mapped out when he arrived in the UK.

Warner even twice attempted to sweep Broad from outside off stump.

“With the white ball I play it quite a bit,” he said.

“Always said in the back of my mind if they set a field where the guy was squarer and they try to hit their lengths, then I’d play it. It is risky, but I’m trying to put them off their line and length in the back of my mind.
