Australia batting superstar David Warner has left everyone stunned with his ability to bat as a right-handed batsman ahead of the Test series against Sri Lanka.

David Warner and his Australia teammates will be keen to bounce back in the upcoming Test series against Sri Lanka after losing the ODI series against the same opposition. The tour started on a good note for Australia as they won the three-match T20I series.

Warner also started his tour on a good note by scoring an unbeaten 70 in the first T20I. He, however, failed to bat in the same manner in the following games before playing a fighting knock off 99 runs in the fourth ODI. However, his 99-run knock could not save the match for Australia.

Australia started the ODI series on a winning note too before Sri Lanka won the following three games to seal the series with a match remaining. The ODI series win was Sri Lanka’s first against Australia at home in 30 years. The tourists then finished the series with a consolation win in the last ODI.

David Warner’s special preparation for Test series:

After the loss in ODIs, Australia would be looking to get back to winning ways in the upcoming two-match Test series. The series is scheduled to start on Wednesday (June 29) in Galle. The second Test will be played at the same venue from July 8.

And ahead of the series, David Warner has been doing special preparation. The Australia batting mainstay was seen batting as a right-handed batsman in the nets. Warner looked at ease during the net session as he played some classy shots while batting as a right-hander.

The cricket world is definitely not new to seeing Warner as a right-handed batsman but his recent net session has still left everyone stunned. He had done something similar during a match in the Bangladesh Premier League in 2019.

Playing for Sylhet Sixers, he had batted as a right-handed batsman while facing Chris Gayle. On that occasion too, he had stunned everyone with his stroke play as he hit 6, 4 and another 4 on the last three deliveries of the over.

Here are a couple of clips of David Warner’s recent net session:
