Since 2022, David Warner has had a difficult time with the bat in Test cricket. The southpaw has been ineffective in the ongoing Test series against India, with scores of 1,10 and 15 through the first two matches.
Former Pakistani cricketer Ramiz Raja stated that the southpaw could be dropped from Australia’s Test squad due to his poor form. The former head of the PCB was also quite scathing of Australia’s lack of preparedness for the series.
“Warner’s batting is a coin flip, and he may be pulled from Tests shortly. Despite a huge century, he also failed in Australia. “You can’t stop the new generation of hitters,” Raja stated in his most recent YouTube video.
“No one expected Australia to be defeated in just three days. Their preparation was poor, and so was their technical play. Before beginning the Test series, they should have played three or four-day games. With rapid entry and exit, it is impossible to adapt. “They were unable to perform in the second Test,” he continued.
Warner did not bat in the second innings of the second Test due to a concussion and a hairline fracture in his left elbow, which ruled him out. For the second innings, Australia replaced him with Matt Renshaw and sent Travis Head to open the innings. The seasoned opener is unlikely to recover in time for the March 1 commencement of the third Test in Indore.
Warner has the lowest average for an Indian opener
Warner’s difficulties in India have worsened, as he is now the opener with the lowest batting average in the country (minimum of 15 innings). He has opened the batting 18 times in India, scoring 391 runs with an average of 21.72 and a high of 71.
Since 2022, the former Australian vice-captain has struggled to score runs. His average last year was 30,05, but after three matches this year, it has dropped to 9. Reports indicate that Warner will return to Australia to maximise his rehabilitation.
