Australia and New South Wales (NSW) opener David Warner was offered a Queensland Bulls jersey and the chance to become an honorary banana bender in the Australian practice game in Brisbane on Tuesday. To this, Warner laughed it off and chose not wear the maroon jersey which was offered to him by Queensland coach Stuart Law.


While he was playing for Queensland, he chose the Australian One-Day International (ODI) uniform instead of the Queensland jersey. He scored 84 runs from only 60 balls against his Australian fellow mates, reported The Courier Mail.


Warner posted on the social media platform Twitter saying, “I just vomited”. The jersey did not matter much as he was in fine touch in the last innings that he played just before he becomes a proud father the next month.


Officials of the Cricket Australia pointed out the non Queenslander players who wore Australian training apparel instead of the Queensland Bulls uniform. Phil Hughes was also one of them who continued with run feast as he slammed 57 runs from just 41 balls against an Australian attack which had bowlers like Mitchell Johnson and Starc who were hit for plenty.
