Australia’s Test captain Tim Paine defends his fellow team-mate David Warner against the allegations put by Ben Stokes. Recently, Stokes blamed Warner for inciting him in the 3rd Test match during the Ashes 2019. Stokes went on to score a miraculous ton in the same game.
“By no means was he abusing him or sledging him. It just seems to be a common trend in England that they like to use Davey’s name to spike book sales. So, good luck to them”, Paine said.
Stokes censured Warner for chirping behind the stumps while he was batting in the 3rd Test match. He further told that it was Warner whose sledging prompted him to score a magnificent ton for his team. England went on to win that Test match but Australia retained the Ashes trophy.
