Tim Paine backs misfiring David Warner

Coming to the Ashes series, Australia’s opening batsman David Warner was in rich form as the aggressive cricketer smashed all the bowlers to score a plethora of runs in the recently concluded World Cup. However, his red-ball form seems to be poor as he managed to muster only 18 runs across first two Ashes Tests.

Nevertheless, the 32-year old has recently got the valuable backing of his skipper Tim Paine as the wicket-keeper batsman isn’t concerned with Warner’s drought of runs. The dexterous cricketer, while reflecting on the current situation, added that people are getting critical towards Warner, but he is backing the veteran to come good in the remaining games.

Calling Warner a ‘match-winner’, the Tasmania born said that Warner’s unfruitful outings are no secret to him, but his mental toughness always allows him to make a strong comeback from precarious positions. With Australia 1-0 up and three games remaining in the ongoing Test series, it would be interesting to see Warner’s approach towards the forthcoming matches.
