David Warner believes Australia found its winning streak at just the right time after its undefeated 89 helped beat the West Indies in the final Super 12 game of the ongoing ICC T20 Men’s World Cup in 2021.
Warner’s heavy blow came from just 56 balls and along with Mitchell Marsh, 53 of 32, put up 123 for the third wicket when Australia drove home with eight wickets to chase 158. Along with England, Australia is the other team to have qualified for the Group 1 semi-finals.
“I think all in all I think we get the momentum at the right stage of this tournament. It’s just another game of cricket. We feel no pressure at all. At the end of the day they have [Pakistan] play well. We play well. And yes, the best team will win that day, ”Warner said in an official ICC announcement.
Warner praised his teammate Marsh, who was in and out of the team with Ashton Agar but achieved a great half-century at a crucial time for his country.
Warner said, “I see a very clear cricketer. He’s playing his natural game. He’s training the house. He’s into high performance, fitness. He’s worked really, really hard, old man and a lot of people beat him.”
“A lot of these players, who have been around for a while, climax and find their thongs and play with their minds and that’s exactly what he’s done. His form is great and he hits the ball just like anyone else on the team.” and you can see it in the field and it’s amazing and I’m really excited about it and it’s great for our team, “he added.
Warner stated that the squad has grown close since losing to England in the current tournament and managed to put the disappointment behind them very quickly.
“Sometimes you get injured and seriously injured. And that’s what happened to us. It works for us and just does what we normally do. You have to forget that very quickly, keep supporting your game plan and give your best foot forward, and we did that, “said Warner.
“We have a great group here and every time we’re back at the hotel or have some free time, the boys are in a good mood. We’re in our rooms outside on the driving range, playing golf, playing PlayStation. Just the normal things do that distract you from cricket and it was great, “he added
