Australian star opener David Warner believes that if the Australian team were more humble and respectful towards the opposition during the upcoming home series against India, the Australian team would perform their best.
However, David Warner said that the Indian team prefers to engage Australian players in a bit of banter. Still, he believes that if they do not engage in conversation and reply back with their performance, their team performs best.
“The last time we toured in India, they really engaged us like that we are learning over time, especially myself, that if you look not to engage in that you are almost reversing the effect by ignoring it, trying to take it in, and using your bat. You don’t know the effect (losing your temper) will have on your teammates, so you have to be a bit more humble and be more respectful to the opposition,” Warner said.
Warner is also always concerned about the image that he is putting on in front of his kids; hence he has learned not to be too aggressive and to be patient.
“You have to be patient, not get too aggressive, not get angry when the kids aren’t listening, so I’m getting tested on and off the field,” Warner added further.
The India tour of Australia will commence with three ODIs, three T20Is, and four Tests and all set to begin from November 27 in Sydney.
However, with the return of Steve Smith and David Warner in the opening, Australia will be a different kettle of fish in the game. This time, India’s tour of Australia will be more difficult compared to 2018-19.
