After retaining the Ashes, Australian opening striker David Warner said on Wednesday that it would be nice if his team manages to beat India in India as they have not yet achieved this particular feat. Warner also hinted at getting another crack at trying to win the Ashes in England. In 2019, the left-handed striker was out of shape in England when he was continually rejected by Stuart Broad. “We still have not beaten India in India. That would be nice to do. And of course, England away, we had a draw in 2019, but hopefully if I managed to get that chance and opportunity, I might consider to leave. back, “ESPNcricinfo quoted Warner as saying.

Warner also said he sees age as no obstacle and he praised English pacer James Anderson for setting a really high benchmark in test cricket.

“I think James Anderson is setting the benchmark for older guys these days. We look up to him as we move forward in our days. But for me, it’s about performing to the best of our ability and putting races on the board.” said Warner.

“In the first two tests, I actually look like a proper batsman, it’s almost like I’ve played my career the other way and had to knuckle down and respect the bowling and the line and lengths they bowled, and of course the hundreds. he added.

“I feel in good touch. Like I said, I was out of running not out of shape, so hopefully I can put some more numbers on the board leading into this new year,” he added.


Pacer Scott Boland took six wickets in the second innings as Australia defeated England by one innings and 14 runs in the third Ashes Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Tuesday.

With this victory, Australia regained the ashes as the hosts have achieved an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series in five matches.
