Australia captain Tim Paine has backed misfiring batsman David Warner to hit form in the third Ashes Test at Headingley. Warner has managed only 18 runs in two Ashes tests so far.
“David Warner hasn’t hit his straps yet and I notice people getting a bit trigger happy on that subject, but I am not worried,” he wrote.
“We are 1-0 up in the series and he hasn’t got out of the blocks. He is a match winner… he is also the most mentally tough cricketer I know. He is due a score and that is a dividend I am looking forward to.”
The third Test begins on Thursday.
