India’s tour of Australia is just a few days away. There have been continuous statements from the players. Some naming their favourites, others sharing their challenges before the series. David Warner who had a dream season in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The left-handed batsman scored 548 runs in 16 matches. Warner feels he has only a few years of international cricket left. He wants to keep a check on his aggression against the upcoming matches against India. He would ignore every attempt of Indian players sledging him.
In a recent virtual conference conducted by official broadcaster SONY, He said “I’ve just recently turned 34, so my days are numbered when you’re in the 30s. There’s a risk element but there’s obviously a cricket-smart element to it as well,”
In captaining Sunrisers Hyderabad, he has shown composure. He also expressed that as players grow in age, they have to show maturity and learn to keep their cool. At 34 he has calculated risk-taker and likes to take the game to the finishing line.
“We’re learning over time, trying not to engage in that. Probably try and reversing the effect by trying and ignoring it, trying to take it on board and using it against them by using your bat”
Warner feels that his family has also helped him to become patient. Facing tough situations both on and off-field has helped him to keep calm and deal with the situation in a better way.
“Make sure you’re not bringing people down with your emotions and keep trying to find ways to get better as a player and as a team player” warned added.
