Usman Khawaja can open in second Test – Ricky Ponting

Ricky Ponting told an Australian cricket website, “If David Warner does not play in the second Test, then I think maybe Usman Khawaja can get a chance as an opening batsman. However, he has played for Queensland in the last few years. But, he has done it for Australia. Also Khawaja is an experienced player. However, it is a bit of a concern that he hasn’t opened for a long time.

Let us inform that on Thursday, David Warner was injured on the ball of fast bowler Mark Wood, after which he was sent for a scan. However, scans did not confirm any serious injuries and Australia are expected to take the field to bat in the second innings.
