Australian batsmen David Warner admitted that he shouldn’t have reacted to the send-off from Indian pacer Varun Aaron, after the replays showed that Aaron delivered a no-ball (on which Warner got bowled) on the day four of the first Test at Adelaide.
During the post-day conference, Warner was quoted in saying:
“It’s just how cricket’s played. When things don’t go your way you sort of get the adrenaline up. For him to bowl the no-ball and me to come back in and I sort of went at him a little bit, I shouldn’t have, but it got me into another contest and to start again from there. You have to keep riding the rollercoaster as much as you can.
“I think the world knows that I like to get involved and that’s how I play my cricket. That’s how it is, I try to take it to them. If I have to be a bit verbal I will and sometimes I cross the line, I’ve got to try not to.”
Warner also expressed happiness over his purple patch and said that his next goal is to convert his 130-140s into big ones.
“I’ve got to keep riding this rollercoaster and keep doing my job for the team, which is scoring runs at the top. Sometimes there is an advantage but at the top of the order you’ve got to bat as long as you can as big as you can.
“For me now it’s about when I’m getting those hundreds, I’ve got to make big hundreds and turn them into double-hundreds for the team. That’s my next goal, once I’m in I’ve got to try to go big like Michael Clarke did against India last time.”
