Sylhet Sixers team management called a press conference Thursday evening regarding the issue, but after the scheduled time, they postponed it due to “unavoidable circumstances”

Cricket Australia’s official website cricket.com.au reported Thursday morning, Bangladesh time, that Warner will return to Australia next week to be medically assessed after reporting elbow pain while playing in the Bangladesh Premier League.

Sylhet Sixers management have not given any confirmation yet regarding the participation of Warner for the full season of BPL 6 after reports emerged Thursday morning that the Australian left-hander will leave Bangladesh after the Sylhet phase of the tournament.

Sylhet team management called a press conference Thursday evening regarding the issue, but after the scheduled time, they postponed it due to “unavoidable circumstances”.

According to the report, a CA spokesperson confirmed Thursday Warner will head home Monday to have his injury assessed.

The report also said while the extent of the injury remains unknown, Warner will continue to play for Sylhet before he departs, meaning he will feature in matches Friday and Saturday.

Former Australian captain Steve Smith, who was playing for Comilla Victorians, also returned to Australia last week owing to a recurrence of an injury in his right elbow.

Warner, the captain of Sylhet, played five matches so far with two half-centuries. 

Warner has scored 61*, nought, seven, 59 and 14 in his five innings for the Sixers.
