Austrailian opener David Warner has been arguably one of the most dangerous Australian batsmen in the limited over series, however, the southpaw has had a rather quiet in the ongoing series so far.
This is also just the second bilateral ODI series where Warner has not managed at least one fifty in first three matches of the series. The only earlier instance was against Pakistan in the UAE when he scored just 50 runs in 3 innings.
Interestingly, Warner’s fifty-plus scores in Asia have only come at the end of series, be it his 56 against Pakistan came in the 3rd ODI of a 3-match series in 2014 or his 106 against Sri Lanka came in the 5th ODI of a 5-match series in 2016.
Talking about the already lost series, Warner said, “On a personal front, it is my first ODI series in India. So coming here for the first time to play in ODIs with two new white balls would be different. The first two games were different.”
He concluded, “In Kolkata, the ball was swinging around. It is probably the toughest conditions I have faced from the white ball point of view. It swung a lot more than what it did in England. You adapt your game according to conditions. The last game was probably a game played in the traditional way. There the ball did not swing as much. The wicket was nice to bat on and I made most of it by getting in. So, that probably is a thing for me to reflect.”
