Talking to a geezer in work today who was banging on about Warner being consistently crap in the first innings.
It was certainly the case in the Ashes but he still managed to be one of the top scorers (in fact was he the top scorer)
So he's pretty much perfect for Australia at the minute with the way Johnson is bowling because they are always getting hefty first innings leads which gives him licence to tee off in the second where he is absolutely lethal
Does it matter that he doesn't seem to do it first up? Is this a coincidence? Or will he be found wanting when Australia face a side who stack a big score against them?
As destructive as he is, not sure I'd want him opening for us at the moment, given the situations we are in most games. But realistically we could under no stretch of the imagination decline a player who can take a bowling attack apart like that. Well actually that's bull**** as we've just got rid of one such player, but...
Right place, right time? Annoying internet fan looking for a criticism that isn't there? Legitimate criticism?
Not suggesting I'm stating anything groundbreaking. Could have been discussed in the tour thread for all I know...
