Warne was quoted in Australia as saying: “I’m a bit battered and bruised and very sore.”
Despite his injuries, he is still expected to be able to fulfil his broadcasting duties for the Ashes.

And Warne should be able to take up his commentary position at the Gabba.
Ahead of the first test, Warne has called on Australia to axe fast bowler Mitchell Starc.
He said: “He needs to find a bit of rhythm and some form.
“He had a really poor World Cup. He’s just not bowling well enough.
“It’s too important at the Gabba. I’m all for Jhye Richardson (replacing Starc).”
