Former Australia batsman Matthew Hayden complimented Warner for the way he’s pacing his innings for Delhi Capitals saying the left-handed batter’s fitness is helping him perform well year after year.
Speaking on Cricket Live on Star Sports, Hayden said, “No matter what bowlers, what franchise he plays for. When he does get going, David Warner is a very very special player. He obviously uses the pace (of the ball) very well but you never see a slide in his game, he never sort of decelerates in his game.”
I think his opening partner Prithvi Shaw is scoring pretty heavily at the start. Shaw’s strike rate through the powerplay is very high but David Warner uses his fitness well and looks to bat deep. He knows how to pace his innings.”
