The Australian skipper Aaron Finch on Tuesday in conversation with cricket.com.au opened up about opener David Warner’s replacements in the limited over series. Mathew Wade, Marnus Labuschagne, and Alex Carey are probable players who can come up and bat at Warner’s position for the team in remaining white-ball fixtures.
Australian opener David Warner who scored two back-to-back half-centuries in the first two-game got injured while fielding in the second ODI on Sunday. He quickly went for the scan and found out groin injury. Cricket Australia has already ruled out the opener batsman from the remaining white-ball fixtures against India. However, Cricket Australia prioritize the test side and wants Warner to be ready before the test series against India.
Aaron Finch on Warner’s replacement:
“We haven’t selected our team yet, but we have got a few options on our side. We have some options, Wadey in the side can be up for the side or Marnus comes up and opens the inning, Alex Carey has done a lot of it in the past,” cricket.com.au quoted Finch as saying.
“But our middle order has been playing really well over the last little while. That is what reflected in the scoreboard of being two-nil up in the series. You can look to experiment if you want to do that or you can play safe,” he added.
Finch praised Warner for his batting over the white ball format and reckons him as one of the best in the business of all time.
“He is an all-time great in one-day and T20 cricket. I do not think there are many better players to have played the game,” said Finch.
“Any side he is not part of is definitely going to be slightly weaker without his presence but we have few options available and we will look forward to use them.”
The home side has already won the series with 2-0 lead in the second game itslef while they will be exciented to clean sweep the visitors.
