David Warner s moment of glory in the ongoing The Ashes series came in the Boxing Day Test. He managed to score his 21st century after a string of low scores. His innings was full of spice and chit-chatter with the English players. Despite Joe Root adopting defensive tactics, Warner motored to a memorable hundred.

Speaking to the press on his hundred, Warner said: As a batter, you always get edgy and when you miss out you want to cash in as soon as possible. Growing up, you always want a Boxing Day ton It eluded me for a while until last year (against Pakistan), and then I knew once I got in I really had to try to knuckle down and dig in.”

He went on explain how he delt with England’s defensive tactics.

He said: “The way that they bowled was obviously a bit negative outside off stump, trying to get me driving. They were obviously too wide and I couldn’t play at anything. I had to be patient, and I knew my time would come.”

He also opened about the banter he received on the field after scoring his 100.

He explained: “That’s on the field and is always going to happen in the game of cricket. It’s an Ashes series, there is always going to be niggle and banter. I think this series has been played in the right sprits..there was probably only on one occasion that it went too far.”
