David Warner says “I think he is the frontrunner at this stage” in the Ashes. While previewing England vs. Bangladesh T20 World Cup 2021. Also, match on the same show. Ajay Jadeja commented that Group 1 of the Super 12 round. It was like the IPL. Pucovski looked set to hit the ground running after undergoing shoulder reconstructive surgery. However, he sustained a setback after suffering his tenth concussion during training. Warner admitted he named Joe Burns. As the frontrunner, last summer but stated that it’s all about opportunities. He thinks the current scenario puts Pucovski front and center.
“For me, it’s about giving opportunities to people who deserve those opportunities. I think there are two guys at the moment that are sitting there waiting, that’s Will Pucovski and Marcus Harris. There is obviously talk about Usman Khawaja, he scored a good 150 recently, a senior player. There are opportunities there for the selectors to pick who they want. Given Pucovski got injured and he was in the team, I think he is the frontrunner at this stage,” Warner said.
Will Pucovski made his debut Test appearance last summer. Also, scored 62 in his first innings of the Sydney fixture. He has an imposing first-class record, averaging 53.41 in 24 Tests. Meanwhile, Warner addressed concerns over his form. And the declared he is close to returning to his best.
“I actually think people talking about my form is quite funny; I laugh at the matter. I’ve played hardly any cricket, at the IPL I had two games, then we wanted to give all the other youngsters a crack. Then warm-up games – they are warm-up games for a reason. The other day I got my benchmark for where I should be at with my feet,” David Warner said.
Lastly, Warner has been out of form. Since the second leg of IPL 2021 in Dubai. He failed to fire in the warm-up games as well. Also, he struck three crisp boundaries in the 15-ball knock against the Proteas. However, Australia will need more from Warner to win the World Cup and the Ashes.
