Warner given a break

Australia coach Darren Lehmann has revealed that stand-in T20I captain David Warner will be given a break ahead of the Aussies' next T20I against New Zealand on Friday.

The opener is the only player in the current T20 squad that has played in all thee formats this summer that included an Ashes victory and a four-one ODI series defeat against England.

Lehmann said Warner will not travel with the squad to Auckland on Tuesday but only arrive on Thursday so he could spend some time at home and refresh his mind.

The Australia mentor said: "It will just give him a couple of days at home really. It's always a challenge with the schedule as it is, but David is really keen to play as captain.

"So we'll give him a couple of days off and get him to New Zealand the day before the game."

Lehmann is also not worried about Warner's lack of runs in the current T20 tri-series that also includes the Kiwis and England.
