Chittagong’s weather hottest, says Warner
Australia opener David Warner who hit his second consecutive century in the ongoing two-match Test series, has said Chittagong’s weather condition has been the hottest he has ever played in by far.
“I always talk about trying to bat long periods for time in these conditions and by far that’s the hottest I’ve ever played in,” Warner told the reporters after the end of the day’s play.
He added on the same, “It was quite challenging to be out there. Coming off yesterday, it was every minute that I was out there. We were out there for 100 overs the day before.”
The opener scored 123 runs off 234 balls, including seven fours. He also said the innings was one his best as long as patience is considered. “I think from a patience point of view, definitely (it was my best),” Warner said.
Talking about the match Warner concluded, “It’s crucial that we try and put as many runs on the board as possible. I wouldn’t say the wicket is deteriorating, there’s a little bit of rough out there created from the bowlers. The middle of the wicket is still nice and true. But as the spinners do, they’ll work out what they need to do and hit those rough areas.”
