Perth: Jan 13, 2012

Centurion David Warner said that the Indian batsmen walked into the Australian trap and credited the pacers for bowling out the famed batting line-up for a mere 161 on day one of the third Test at the WACA in Perth.

Warner etched his name in to the record books after he slammed the fastest century by an opener in Test cricket. The New South Wales batsman struck 13 fours and three sixes to finish the day on an unbeaten 104.

“Credit to the four quicks that have come in today,” Warner was quoted saying in sportal.co.au.

“We see that the lines and length we have to bowl to the Indian guys here is if you bowl the fifth, sixth stump line they don’t like leaving the ball, they like trying to hit every ball as possible.

“And, it just shows if we keep fishing out there they’re going to nick them and that’s exactly what they’ve been doing.

“I feel sorry for Nathan Lyon as well, being left out, he didn’t really do anything wrong but the wicket out there just meant you can play four quicks and we did.”
