Quite nice not to be abused: Warner

Quite nice not to be abused: Warner”

The Australian batsman has been in sublime form since his return to worldwide cricket following the ball-tampering ban. That's why we love playing home and away.

"David Warner said he felt "bizarre" to be playing England without a crowd following Australia's two-run defeat by their arch-rivals in a Twenty20 global at Southampton on Friday that marked the tourists" first competitive match in almost six months.

"But we're just grateful to be back and playing", he added after what was Australia's first competitive match since they beat New Zealand in a one-day worldwide in Sydney on March 13. "I thought for 80 or 90 percent of the game (on Friday) we played really well and we were on top. So it just shows you the importance of communicating, and it was nice to have that", he added.

"Over the last few years especially, a lot of the talk has been about the batting lineup and how phenomenal it is". It was Australia's first competitive match in almost six months.

"It's a shame. Something we're going to have to get better at".

Finch was soon into his stride with a pulled four off express fast bowler Jofra Archer - playing his first white-ball worldwide since bowling the decisive Super Over in England's 50-over World Cup final win over New Zealand at Lord's a year ago.

"They're all the best players (batsmen) when they go back to playing domestic competitions", said Cummins. "You could argue that middle-order role is one of the hardest in any cricket team".

"Someone like MS Dhoni, he was one of the best in the world because he played 3-400 ODI games".

"There was Alex Hales, Sam Billings and people like that, young guns who we would all be saying "watch out for these lads, they're going to be pushing" and they have pushed".

"Tom Curran's final over was brilliant: he held his nerve and stayed as calm as possible in the situation, and executed the plans which were the most important thing", Jordan said.

He also acknowledged how thankful Australia were to be in action at all amid the Covid-19 pandemic.

"We love playing against England and it is better still when we win, but first of all it is great to be over here and playing". We are really grateful for the opportunity. "That is something to keep working on and that's not the first time it's happened, so as long as the boys keep learning and improve at it, lesson learned", Finch said.

The emission of Joe Root from England's Twenty20 setup against Australia raised many questions, however, captain Eoin Morgan on Thursday said that the Test captain has a future in T20I but he was left out as his spot in the playing 11 was not guaranteed.

"I don't think it made any difference to the performance but for sure it was odd", said Cummins of the absence of any crowd taunts. "It's certainly different being over here in England and not hearing some of the songs", he added.
