Dean Jones backs Warner to fire in fifth Ashes Test

Ever since his readmission to the Test team, life has been extremely hard for the Australian cricketer David Warner. While the opening batsman thrived in the white-ball cricket, the ongoing Ashes series is revealing the difficulties of playing Test cricket to Warner. In the 8 innings, the 32-year old mustered only 79 runs to average less than 10.

However, former Australian player Dean Jones is still not ready to drop the aggressive batsman from the national team. The 58-year old is of the opinion that management needs to be a bit more patient as a strong comeback from Warner is just around the corner. He strengthened his point of backing Warner as he went on to cite Mark Waugh’s terrible form in 1992 Sri Lankan tour where Waugh bagged four consecutive ducks.

In addition to that, the cricketer turned commentator urged Warner to play his natural game which allows him to be fearless. It remains to be seen how Warner responds to Jones’ support as the 5th Ashes is set to get underway from September 12 in London.
