Australia’s explosive opening batsman David Warner was recently found going through a torrid patch in the red-ball cricket. In the Ashes series against England, Warner was nowhere at his best as he managed only 95 runs while recording a shoddy batting average of 9.5. He also became the first batsman in the history of Test cricket to get dismissed for single figures 8 times during a series.
All this raised questions towards his place in the red-ball team of Australia. However, the aggressive cricketer has replied strongly by smashing a spectacular century in the Sheffield Shield for New South Wales to lead their batting reply against Queensland.
Warner’s customary leaping celebration coupled with the expressions on his face spoke a lot about what this ton meant for him. It was also received well by the fans who are eager to see the 32-year old returning to form. However, it remains to be seen if he continues to do well and impress the selectors to get a place in the team for Pakistan Tests.
