Comment: Warner should be dropped if Australia tour Bangladesh

  Comment: Warner should be dropped if Australia tour Bangladesh David Warner should be dropped from the Australian team if the two-Test tour of Bangladesh goes ahead this August and September. While Warner is an automatic choice for this summer’s Ashes on his favoured home pitches, he has become a liability on the road, averaging just 23 with the bat across his past three Test tours, in India, Sri Lanka and New Zealand.If Australia keep the horses-for-courses selection strategy, which saw in-form batsman Usman Khawaja dropped for the Tests in India because of his poor record in Sri Lanka, Warner should not be chosen to play in Bangladesh.

Has David Warner’s new approach to life and cricket come so far that he is now acting in the role of peace-maker?

After the bad blood between the Australian and Indian teams in the recent Test series, it was perhaps prudent that Warner extend an olive branch to an Indian player during the Indian Premier League competition.

Warner was finding the going so easy during his match-winning partnership with fellow Australian Moises Henriques for Sunrisers Hyderabad that he had time to stop and give a bowler his show back in the middle of completing a run.

Gujarat Lions bowler Basil Thampi (who didn’t play for India in their recent Test series win over Australia) created the opportunity for Warner to complete his good deed when he lost a shoe while bowling to Henriques.

Henriques hit the ball to long-on and the batsmen set off for a comfortable single. It was so comfortable that Warner had time to stop and retrieve Thampi’s boot.

Obviously he wouldn’t have made the nice gesture if time was an issue, but his actions still won over the fans.

Warner was a winner again later on when he scored an unbeaten 76 to guide the Sunrisers to a nine-wicket victory.
