The Australian opener revealed that he is not going to get engaged in any repartee with any of the Indian players during the upcoming tour. David Warner was characterized for not playing the game in a right spirit, but after the 2018 scandal against South Africa, David returned as a more humble player.
David Warner revealed that, earlier this January when Australia toured India, the Indian players tried to distract him by engaging him in verbal communication, however if he manages to ignore whatever is happening around him then it’ll be good for him.
David Warner said to AFP:
“The last time we toured in India they really engaged us like that. We’re learning over time, especially myself, that if you look not to engage in that you’re almost reserving the effect by ignoring it, trying to take it in, and using your bat”.
David Warner returned into cricket after a year ban imposed on him due to ball-tempering scandal. He realised the effects of temper can have on the teammates and hence one has to be humble and respectful.
“You don’t know the effect (losing your temper) will have on your teammates, so you have to be a bit more humble and be more respectful to the opposition. You have to be patient, and not get too aggressive, not get angry when the kids aren’t listening, so I’m getting tested on and off the field,” added David Warner.
David Warner will be hoping to continue play like he did in IPL.
