Former Australian vice captain David Warner is about to undergo a minor elbow surgery on January 22 after returning home from the Bangladesh Premier League.

Warner returned to Australia last week from Bangladesh Twenty20 tournament after he reported pain in his right elbow.

Warner’s elbow will be assessed in Melbourne on Tuesday, before he is expected to undergo minor surgery, cricket.com.au reported Monday.

Cricket Australia’s website said Warner’s condition was not believed to be as serious as the elbow injury sustained by Smith, also in the Bangladesh tournament.

Warner, alongside former skipper Steve Smith and batsman Cameron Bancroft was suspended from international cricket over a ball-tampering scandal during a Test match in South Africa last March.

Steve Smith also had a surgery last week and is expected to spend six weeks in a brace before extensive rehabilitation.

Both players’ bans end in late March. Bancroft’s has already finished.
