Australian opener David Warner is also skeptical of playing in the third Test match against Team India. He said that would not be able to fit 100%. Warner suffered an injury in the second match of the ODI series.
Australian opener David Warner said there was doubt about 100 percent fit before the third Test in Sydney. In such a situation, he will not be able to do his work better. On Saturday morning, Warner told the journalist, “I haven’t run for two days. After today’s and tomorrow’s training, you will know how fit I am. I doubt I will be able to fit 100. I am doing whatever I can to get fitness. “
Run between the most important wickets
Warner further said that the most important thing for me right now is to run between the wickets. Right now it does not matter which shot I am able to play and which I am not able to play. I want to be 100 percent fit. But I am finding it difficult at the moment and I am working on it. Whether or not I will be able to play in the third Test depends on how capable I am of playing slip during the shooting. I know I can manage running with a shot. But I also have to catch catches in slip. How fit I am to do it will be decided after that.
Warner was asked who would be his opening partner in the absence of Joe Burns. In such a situation, he said that it depends on the selectors. My play is not sure. In such a situation, I cannot say anything. Matthew Wade has started the innings well with Joe Burns. I may or may not stay. He is able to put pressure on the Indian bowlers.
