Cricket Australia says Test opener and newly-appointed vice-captain David Warner will miss the team’s two-Test tour of Bangladesh because of a fractured left thumb.

Warner sustained the injury while batting at Lord’s in the second one-day international against England on Sept. 5. He won’t require surgery and is hoping to be fit for Australia’s home series against New Zealand in November.

It will be the third Test series between the two countries and the first since Australia’s 2-0 victory in Bangladesh in 2006.
