Australian batsman is going through a torrid time in the ongoing Ashes series as the opening batsman was able to muster only 79 runs across 8 innings, averaging less than 10. Scoring ducks in each of his last 3 batting outings, Warner has found life extremely hard while tackling the new ball.
However, many former players are backing the aggressive cricketer to announce his arrival in form and head coach Justin Langer is no exception. The 48-year old admitted that Warner’s current form is a cause of concern, but called him a ‘match-winner’ while backing him to do well in The Oval as he considers the ground as the best place to bat.
“Davey (Warner) hasn’t had a great series, there’s no secrets about that. But he’s also a world-class player and I’ve said throughout the whole series, if Davey has one good innings it’ll help us win the Ashes. There’s no better place in the world to bat than The Oval, so I’m looking forward to see him bat there,” Justin Langer said while encouraging Warner to fire in 5th Ashes Test.
