The former Vice-Captain of the Australian cricket team has taken this morning badly.
David Warner, the disgraced former opening batsman and ringleader behind the infamous ball-tampering scandal in Cape Town, confirmed today that he was the only person in the country disappointed by Australia’s start to the test summer.
His disappointment comes as the Indian top order collapsed to 4/56 at lunch on Day 1 of the first Test.
The fiery left hander currently in exile explained exclusively to The Advocate this afternoon why he was taking the success so badly.
“It’s double pronged for me,” Warner said to our reporters.
“I mean obviously it stings that the summer of cricket has kicked off and I am not out there because of the whole ball tampering thing.”
“And then the way this morning has gone stings equally if not more,” he said, getting up and turning off his OLED TV and walking out to the backyard.
Then man who walked out of a grade cricket game after some extremely white bread sledging then admitted that he wished this morning went differently.
“Just personally, I would have like to have seen King Kohli knock up 150 odd and the Aussie batsmen collapse for not many,” Warner said.
“Hopefully we collapse spectacularly in this first innings and things get worse over the next few tests,” said the man who celebrates with one of the team’s sponsors trademarks.
“Then I can build a little bit of momentum for a return.”
Warner then told us that he had to call Roxy Jacenko and asked us to leave.
