The 34-year-old suffered an injury during the second ODI against India in November and was later excluded from the third game in Canberra, the three-game T20 series and the first two tests.
Returning to the team for the Sydney and Brisbane tests against India, he was not 100 percent in shape and struggled to move forward, registering scores of 5, 13, 1 and 48.
“Just to clarify a comment I made in the comment last night, that” My Groin “will need ongoing treatment and will have an irritating pain for at least 6-9 months. I am returning to play for NSW on March 4, 2021 #horsesmouth , “Warner tweeted on Tuesday (February 23).

On Monday (February 22), Warner caused a stir when he clarified his injury.
“Next week I’m going to start playing. (That was) very difficult in the last few weeks, even trying to shoot,” said Warner in Fox Cricket.
“Now it’s all about the side (movement), running between the shutters. It will irritate me in the next six to nine months. But I’m sure the doctors will help me with this,” he added.
Warner was selected for the South Africa test trip, which was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Following his domestic duties to NSW, Warner is expected to be captain Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League (IPL), which is due to start in the second week of April.
“You have to teach your brain not to worry about the pain and it will not happen again.
“It’s just about regaining confidence to be able to swerve and run as hard as you can and dive again. It’s more than shooting when you’re hitting,” he added.
