Couldn’t be more proud of these guys: David Warner on impressive Australian summer

Aussie opener David Warner took to social media and lauded the efforts of his teammates and support staff after series wins over Pakistan and New Zealand

After whitewashing New Zealand in a three-match Test series, Australia’s batsman David Warner on Tuesday praised the team and said he could not be more proud of the squad.

 

Australia had also defeated Pakistan in a two-match home series. As a result, it has moved to the second position on the World Test Championship (WTC) points table.

The left-handed Warner also heaped praise on Marnus Labuschagne, who scored 926 runs from five matches in this Australian summer.

Labuschagne is currently the number four ranked player in the ICC Test batsmen rankings.

“What’s not pictured here is our Support Staff members who work tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure we are right to go for every match so thank you very much for that. To Australia, we thank you for your support and kind messages and let’s finish off the summer come march against NZ with the white ball. Thank you,” he added.
