ICC World Cup 2019: My Wife Is My Rock – David Warner After His Stunning Hundred
After a fine team, we have got a beautiful sight of David Warner leaping in joy to punch in the air, especially, in the Australian Jersey. The flamboyant batsman had made things fall in place for the team with his brilliant display of batting against Pakistan attack in those tough batting conditions.
On the other day, David Warner smashed his 15th ODI hundred as Australia cruised towards a big total against Pakistan in a World Cup 2019 match in Taunton on Wednesday. This was Warner’s 1st hundred for Australia since the ball-tampering scandal and his second in World Cups.
David Warner, who won the Orange Cap in the 2019 Indian Premier League with 692 runs from 12 matches, began the 2019 World Cup with an unbeaten 89 against Afghanistan before falling cheaply against West Indies. David Warner was surprisingly slow against India in a chase of 353.
My wife is very selfless – David Warner
Meanwhile, speaking of the return, the flamboyant batsman credited all his success to his wife Candice Warner. David Warner showered words of praise on his wife for staying with him during the tough times and making him get his training right to be back even stronger.
”I always wanted to return to International Cricket. The thing that kept me going was my wife and kids. My wife is just, she’s just my rock. She’s unbelievable. She’s determined, disciplined, selfless,” the 32-year-old left-hander added.
“She’s a strong woman. And she got me out of bed a lot in those sort of the first sort of 12 weeks and got me back running and training hard as I could… She really nailed that into me,” he said to the reporters.
Personally, a great thing for me:
The hundred in Taunton was also David Warner’s third successive hundred vs Pakistan in ODIs. Warner had slammed back-to-back hundreds (130 in Sydney and 179 in Adelaide) during Pakistan’s tour to Australia in 2017.
“Personally, it’s a great thing,” said Warner of his hundred. “It was a long time coming. Against Afghanistan, I felt like I had no rhythm. And still, last game they (India) bowled really straight to me. But to come out here, play the way I know I can play was awesome,” David Warner explained.
All in all, it was a stunning knock from David Warner during the game against Pakistan. He answered all the critics with his brilliant striking. The flamboyant batsman would like to repeat the same for the Australian team in upcoming few games as well.
