Warner implements match-like conditions at netsOctober 25th, 2011 - 7:47 pm ICT by IANS
Sydney, Oct 25 (IANS) Determined to become a Test player, Australia’s explosive opening batsman David Warner implements almost match-like conditions in the nets as a key part of his strategy.
“If you get out you’ve got to be strict on yourself, and say if I get out more than once I should actually walk out of the net. What you’re going to get in training is what you’re going to get in the game, you’ve got to make it as realistic as possible,” Warner was quoted saying in the Australian media.
Warner has cemented his place in ODIs and Twenty20 team but he is yet to earn his baggy green. But now he has big backer in Australian captain Michael Clarke, who feels that Warner is the next batsman in line.
“I think he’s ready to play all three forms of the game now. We’ve got players in the Test squad that have been performing … so Davey’s going to have to bide his time,” Clarke said.
