Since 2022, David Warner has struggled mightily with the bat in Test cricket. The southpaw has so far scored 1, 10, and 15 in the first two Tests of the present Test series against India, failing to have any significant influence.
Former Pakistani cricketer Ramiz Raja responded to the southpaw’s bad performance by suggesting that the Australian Test team might bench him. The Australian team’s lack of preparation before to the series received harsh criticism from the former PCB Head.
Warner’s hitting is 50/50, and he might be kicked out of Tests shortly. Despite a significant century, he also failed in Australia. The next batch of hitters cannot be stopped, Raja declared in his most recent YouTube video.Nobody anticipated Australia’s demise in under three days. Both their preparation and technical play were lacking. Prior to the Test series, they should have played three or four day games. You cannot modify with rapid in and out. In the second Test, they were unable to perform, he continued.
Warner was unable to play in the second innings of the second Test owing to a concussion and a little hairline fracture in his left elbow, therefore he did not bat. In the second inning, Australia replaced him with Matt Renshaw and sent Travis Head to start the game. The third Test in Indore, which begins on March 1, is unlikely to have the seasoned opener healthy.
The worst average opening for Warneran Indian opening
Being the opener with the poorest average in the nation, Warner’s problems in India have become worse (minimum of 15 innings). With a best score of 71, he has opened on 18 times in India and has scored 391 runs at an average of 21.72.
Since 2022, the former Australian vice-captain has had trouble getting runs. He averaged 30.05 last year, but after three matches this year, it has dropped to nine. Warner is reportedly planning to go back to Australia to speed up his rehabilitation.
