Watching Warner in this SA/Aus series, was thinking how underrated a high SR for batsmen in test cricket is. A lot of people seem to say that it doesn't matter all that much because there aren't often time concerns in the longest format etc., but the effect a high SR has on the opposition is so palpable...it brings in this element of pressure which completely changes the feeling of the game. The captain is forced to abandon normal tactics and change around field settings, the bowlers stray from their lines, pressure to take catches and field well increases. And aside from all of that, the pressure is off the batsman at the other end, especially if they happen to be more of an accumulator type player. You just really get the feeling that if a player like Warner succeeds, then it completely sets up the game for the rest of the team. Be interested to hear how other people see it.
