Warner fit despite dizzy spells

Perth: David Warner is suffering from dizzy spells after being struck on the head by a bouncer from Indian paceman Umesh Yadav during the third Test but the Australian opener says he is "fit" to play the fourth Test in Adelaide.

The destructive left-hander was hit on his left ear and that's why Cricket Australia had refused to release him for Sydney Thunder's Big Bash match against the Brisbane Heat Monday night.

Warner had suffered a blow to his elbow as well but has now been cleared by CA.

Warner fit for 4th Test despite dizzy spells

Warner was struck on the head by a bouncer from India's Umesh Yadav during the third Test.

"I'm a bit battered and bruised. I might have played if I wasn't hit on the head and the elbow," Warner told Sky Sports Radio.

"It was more my call with the physio Alex [Kountouris] saying it's better off that I rest and recover from the injury so I'm fit for the next Test. I'm still getting a little bit dizzy. It was a good knock, I should have kept my eye on the ball," he added.

Warner had scored an attacking 180 in Australia's comprehensive an innings and 37-run win at Perth.
