David Warner has opened up on Matthew Wade’s batting in the semi-final of the ICC T20 World Cup. Wade along with Marcus Stoinis won the most important game for the side. Speaking to Boria Majumdar, Warner said that he wouldn’t have played the strokes which Wade hit on that particular day.
The left-handed batter scored an unbeaten 40 off 17 balls as the Aussie thumped the tournament favourites Pakistan in the semis of the global event.
Wade hit three consecutive sixes off left-arm seamer Shaheen Afridi to take the Yellow Army to the finale. Asked for his views on Wade’s batting, Warner said – “In those situations, I can’t play the shot that he plays. If I was out there, I would never have hit that six because I can’t play that shot. Having a guy like him to come in like he did…”
He also slammed critics. “Specifically in Australia, they wrote Matthew Wade and Marcus Stoinis off. They said they can’t win games for Australia. Yes, they can. They won the biggest game for us.”
