Former Australia allrounder Shane Watson has praised David Warner for adjusting his game to play according to the situation, calling him “one of the best” at it. Warner’s ability to adapt his batting to the conditions and the requirements of the team has been one of the key factors behind his success over the years.
This was evident in Australia’s recent match against New Zealand, where Warner played a superb innings to help his team post a mammoth total of 388.

Warner eventually departed after scoring 81 runs off 65 balls. His knock was crucial for Australia as it laid the foundation for a big total. Watson, who was commentating on the match, was impressed with Warner’s batting and his ability to adjust his game according to the situation.
