Australia opener David Warner is likely to miss a few matches in the upcoming limited overs series against India as his wife is due with the couple's second child.

Warner and wife Candice have a daughter named Ivy.

According to Australian newspaper Daily Telegraph: "Warner is flying to Perth this morning ahead of Australia's series-opening clash against India at the WACA on January 12.

“At this point it's anticipated Warner will play that match and the second fixture in Brisbane on the 15th, before potentially resting for the remaining campaign when his newborn arrives."

"However, if bub No.2 was to decide to arrive earlier than scheduled Warner could face a lengthy flight from one corner of Australia to the other," stated a report in the newspaper.

Warner scored a quick-fire century on the fifth day of the rain married third and final Test against the West Indies on Thursday.
