Describing the same, David Warner said, “I didn’t need extra motivation. We’ve all seen what happened before in the past. It was just good to get the win on the board. I was baking up towards the end there. It was a bit silly of me to try to run fast. “

He further added, “Man, he hits them clean and gees they go a long way. Even the other day, 117 meters, these guys are clearing these fences like anything. I’m getting older. I need to get back in the gym. I’m only hitting 85 meters. Hopefully, I can hit one for 100 meters at some stage.”
