Smith, Warner back in nets after a year to prepare for WC warm-up games
Australian superstar duo Steve Smith and David Warner participated in their first nets session with the Australia squad in more than a year on Sunday, May 5. They are surely eager to participate in the warm-up match against New Zealand on Monday, May 6 Jonnywith preparation in mind for the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019 in England and Wales.
Both have been sick in the course of the most recent couple of days as they suffered from viruses after their arrival from India. That’s why while the camp in Brisbane authoritatively began on Friday, this was the first nets day for them.
“I assume so. They have been sick the most recent few days, hopefully, they are up and running,” Australian all-rounder Glenn Maxwell told to the reporters. “Be that as it may, I am almost certain the vast majority of the folks will be prepared to go.”
Maxwell also ensured that there didn’t happen any awkward moments in the dressing room rather they were welcomed cordially. “The way in which they came in to the dressing room, we needed to hear how they had appreciated the Indian Premier League (IPL); needed to hear how Davey (David Warner) making the most of his time opening the batting with Jonny Bairstow (for Sunrisers Hyderabad),” he said.
“Furthermore, they are the two superstars. I watched them two go about it (in IPL) and they were both totally splendid over yonder. There will be no worries over them returning into the group.”
Warner and Smith passed a joyful afternoon nets session at Allan Border Field on Sunday. Warner tackled a little of spin and then plenty of throwdowns from head coach Justin Langer in the nets session. While Smith also tackled the spinners as well as the pacers. They both looked much fluent in the nets.
The banned duo ended their 12-month suspension following the Newlands ball-tampering scandal on March 29. Consequently, they had been picked for the World Cup squad to represent their country once again.
Australia will face New Zealand on Monday in the warm-up match at Brisbane.
