Warner looks at positives ahead of Ashes
BENGALURU: The ODI series is out of their grasp, but Australia vicecaptain David Warner on Wednesday said his side will not give up on trying to force a turnaround against India and make a statement before the upcoming Ashes.
The reigning world champions lost the opening three One-day Internationals (ODIs) against the hosts to surrender the five-match series. However, the Steve Smithled side is looking at the last two ODIs and subsequent three T20 Internationals to make an impres- sion before the Ashes, starting November 23 in Brisbane.
“It is disappointing to lose the series already because we play for our country and that is what we enjoy doing and love doing. There is a lot of pride at stake,” Warner said at the pre-match press conference of the fourth ODI here on Thursday.
“Obviously we have got three T20s as well after this. (And) we are looking at it. We have got to make the most from the remaining ODIs and T20 games and make a turnaround before going into the next series or tournament (Ashes),” he added.
Talking about the already lost series, Warner said the visitors found it difficult to cope up with the conditions in India this time around. Full story @ timesofoman.com/sports
