Australia star David Warner is likely to miss Australia's white-ball series against the West Indies

According to a news report, veteran opening batter David Warner will likely miss Australia's upcoming white-ball series against the West Indies to increase his availability for T20I League cricket.
Australia will host the West Indies between February 2 and 13 for three ODIs and three T20Is. Warner is also likely to feature in the Big Bash League for the Sydney Thunder after playing his final Test.
The chief executive of the Australian Cricketers' Association, Todd Greenberg, indicated on Thursday that he expected Warner to apply for a No Objection Certificate to play in the ILT20.
Greenberg said, "I think the short answer to that is probably yes.”
He said, "I know he's pretty committed to the BBL. There's no doubt that in the next phase of Dave's life, he's going to be looking to ply his trade where he gets the best return on his investment. I don't think there's anything wrong with that; in fact, I'm encouraging him to do that.”
Greenberg also added, “There will be times where he'll be looking to miss certain games and tours. That's the sort of flexibility we've got to get our heads around. Some people won't like that, but that's the modern world in which we're living, and we have to embrace it.”
