Former Australian cricketer Callum Ferguson claims that David Warner will also dominate the Test series against India in February-March. Ferguson said that seeing the kind of form Warner is in, it seems that he will prove to be very important for us. At the same time, former cricketer Mark Hughes has a similar thought as Ferguson. Australia will visit India in February for four Tests.

After the third and final Test against South Africa at Sydney, Australia’s next Test assignment will be a tour of India for four Tests as part of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Warner, who also crossed the 8000-run mark during the MCG Test, is the most experienced campaigner, having toured the country thrice for Test tours previously. He is yet to make a Test century on Indian soil, averaging just 24.25.

In the latest episode of Willow Talk on Triple M Sports radio, Callum Ferguson said, “I think with the form he’s shown here, he’s got the feeling for batting long again. That’s so important for India, if you can get an opener in good form over there, it’s flat early in the Test match, bat first and, get a guy to make 150-200, I think he could really be the man to really tear the initial stages up for us.”

Former Australian cricketer Ferguson’s comments came after Warner scored a brilliant 255-ball double century in the Boxing Day Test against South Africa in Melbourne, which Australia won by an innings and 182 runs to take an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series against South Africa. 

It should be noted that David Warner has not been able to score a century in India so far. He averages just 24.25 on the Indian pitches.

Callum Ferguson further said that I think the form he has shown here gives him the feeling of batting for a long time. I think he will prove to be very important for us in the initial phase. Former Australian cricketer Merv Hughes also supported Ferguson’s views and said he never felt Warner’s place in the Test team was under threat.
