Video: To play 100 ODIs is a significant milestone says Warner
Sept.27 (CRICKETNMORE) - Australia vice-captain David Warner during a press conference reflects on his ODI form in Bengaluru as he prepares to play his 100th one-day game on Thursday against India.
“It’s a significant milestone for myself and my family,” said a delighted Warner on Wednesday. “It’s a dream come true to play even one game, but to come from playing that Twenty20 in Melbourne in front of 90,000 people to be called up a couple of games later to represent Australia in the ODI format, I’m extremely proud of where I am today".
I never thought I would come so far. I’ve learnt a lot in the early stages of my career. One, how to play the game; you can’t just come out and tonk it from ball one like in Twenty20 cricket. I sort of adapted to that approach to four-day cricket and then Test match cricket actually allowed me to play the game properly and show myself that there’s a lot more time in 50-over cricket than there was in 20-over cricket. To be (an) established (batsman) from where I came, I’m proud of that.” he said.
