New Delhi: Australian opener David Warner, who is badly flopped in the Ashes series in England, is on the target of critics. There was speculation that he would be removed from the team after this series. But there is news of relief for him. He will not be dropped from the team. He will be a part of the team in the upcoming series. Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting said that Warner would be part of the team in the home series against Pakistan, despite the poor performance.
For Warner, the current series has been very bad and he has been seven times victim of fast bowler Stuart Broad. Three times he could not even open his account. Ponting said Warner would continue in the team. Ricky Potting said the place of Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith is also confirmed. However, the middle order has question marks on Matthew Wade and Travis Head. Marcus Harris has faced the challenge of the best fast bowlers in this series.
Tim Paine will also remain captain, but there are some places in the batting order that can be considered before the Pakistan series. The former captain said that youngsters like Will Pucovski will be given a chance in the home series. Ponting said that so many places are empty, I would like to see a player like Pucovski get the chance. All have been talking about them for a long time. He has not got a chance yet, but he is a great young batsman. Warner scored just 95 runs in ten innings of five Ashes 2019 Ashes at an extremely poor average of 9.50. This time his best score was just 61 runs.
