Mini break for David Warner, told to recharge his batteries

The Aussie Vice-Captain David Warner is on the road since months, representing his country across formats. It’s been a mix journey for him where he has performed exceptionally well in some matches while getting out cheaply in few. Taking note of the fatigue factor, the management has decided to send him on a mini break in order to recharge his batteries before the series against New Zealand. Justifying the need of break, Darren Lehmann, the Australian coach, has backed the opener to come good in the future assignments.

"We're going to let him (Warner) go home after the Allan Border Medal ceremony for a couple of days and just arrive the day before the game," Australia coach Darren Lehmann was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.

"Give him a couple days at home, really. It's always a challenge when you've got the schedule as it is, but David's really keen to play as captain, so we'll give him a couple days off and get him to New Zealand just before the game and he can play," he added.

He is the only Australian player to feature in all versions of the game this summer. Australia has won all the matches in the first leg of the T20 series featuring New Zealand and England while the second leg is schedule to be played in New Zealand.
