“He’s pissed a lot of people off”-opines Smith to manage Warner’s ego
South African legendary batsman Graeme Smith has given some guidance for Australia coach Justin Langer to ensure David Warner’s ego is controlled that he begins to “get greater than every other person”.
Under about fourteen days before Australia’s World Cup squad is chosen, South African extraordinary top-order Graeme Smith has given an uncommon understanding into why David Warner is such a polarising figure.
Talking on Tuesday night on The Back Page, Smith shared his appreciation for Warner’s cricket aptitudes. But the former South African skipper expressed reservations about whether the combative left-handed opener’s less excellent qualities can be gotten control over.
“I don’t have the foggiest idea. It’s hard to comprehend what it resembles in the background, yet he’s dependably been a mind blowing cricketer,” Smith told The Back Page on Fox Sports.
“Particularly when he bats, he bats with that determined nature, that force, personality to perform. Furthermore, he’s a superb cricketer. I think where David has been all through his profession is that he’s pissed a lot of people off. He’s simply that kind of fellow.
“I think right now he needs Australian cricket more than they need him,” he added.
“I believe he’s extremely determined, I think he needs to progress admirably, he needs to demonstrate his value once more. Also, I think David Warner in that position is most likely a hero to have in your condition.
“It’s the point at which he begins to get greater than every other person then presumably the executives should be prepared for that. Folks likes Langer and whoever is captaining the side going ahead need to guarantee they remain in addition and deal with that space and that inner self well going ahead,” the South-African legend added.
Warner has now completed a year restriction from the Cape Town ball tempering outrage where he, Steven Smith and Cameron Bancroft were suspected to use sandpaper to alter the ball. But now he set to come back to the Australian team to play the World Cup as he completed his ban last month.
The left-hand devastating batsman is currently at India to play the Indian Premier League (IPL) with his franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad. He’s in sublime form as he’s the highest run-scorer in this year’s IPL with 349 runs in just six innings averaging a huge 87.25 with an unbeaten century against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
