- David Warner sympathised with the England cricket team on Ashes tour
- Warner talked about the challenging bio-bubble life for traveling players
- AUS-ENG are slated to face each other in a five-match Ashes series
Australia cricket team starter David Warner spoke about the challenges of playing for the country right now. Since the advent of the bio-bubble, athletes have faced new difficulties, especially when playing abroad.
Warner brought up the sensitive subject when he spoke about the year-end Ashes series scheduled to be performed in Australia. He sympathized to some extent with the English men’s cricket team and their families, due to the five-match test series that began on August 1.
“When it comes to bubbles, it is challenging. I do see England’s point of view. Coming to Australia, the questions being asked are obviously out of the control of Cricket Australia. It’s a government situation,” the Sydney Morning Herald quoted Warner as saying.
Warner gave examples of past experiences and what they meant to him and his children.
“We went through it last season. With crossing borders and the like, there is a lot of hard work and planning that goes into it. I do feel for the England team and it’s more difficult if you’ve got children,” he added.
“It’s different conditions, isn’t it. I’ve always applauded Broady‘s efforts in England, not just against me if you have a look at his stats to left-handers. He pitched the ball up a lot fuller than he had in the previous 12 months and that’s probably why he had so much success,” he said.
According to David Warner, the playing fields and conditions in Australia can turn out to be a very different ball game this time. With lines and lengths varying for different bowlers.
“They looked like good batting wickets but the ball reacted a lot more than we expected. It surprised me. It surprised a lot more of the other guys. It’s part of the game, you go through these patches and it was my time to go through that patch,” he added.
“Playing in Australia is going to be different. Your margin for error is a lot smaller. I know what success I’ve had against him in Australia before. You only have to fractionally over-pitch and you can get punished. That’s a confidence thing for a bowler,” Warner explained.
“If I can apply pressure to him and the other bowlers, that’s what I try to do all the time. If I’m able to do that it may be a different story but I obviously have to respect him,” he concluded.
