Warner expected to undergo minor surgery on elbow

Former Australian vice-captain David Warner is expected to undergo minor surgery on his elbow after returning home from the Bangladesh Premier League.

The 32-year-old returned to Australia last week following a stint with the Sylhet Sixers in the BPL after he reported pain in his right elbow.

Warner's elbow will be assessed in Melbourne before he is expected to undergo minor surgery, reported Monday.

Cricket Australia's website said Warner's condition was not believed to be as serious as the elbow injury sustained by Steve Smith, also in the same tournament.

Smith underwent surgery last week and is expected to spend six weeks in a brace before extensive rehabilitation.
