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 last night.

However, Warner now has been cleared by CA medical staff though he had suffered a blow on his elbow as well.

"I`m a bit battered and bruised. I might have played if I wasn`t hit on the head and the elbow," Warner said in an interview.

"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.
