In the current 4-match Test series, Australia are missing Warner and the team has failed to make a good start. Even in the first innings of the second Test in Melbourne, the entire team was dismissed for 195 runs.
In an interview given to Ricky Ponting, Justin Langer said, “There is no one more professional than Warner and they are doing everything that is possible.” Before the match we saw him doing batting practice, he also batted in the MCG this afternoon.
Langer said he still hoped Warner would recover from the injury before the third Test. He said, ‘He is doing well in batting practice but there is still problem in his groin. We know how much the team will benefit from their presence.
In the absence of Warner, the Australian team has failed to form a big partnership due to which the coaches are very disappointed. He said, ‘We are unable to catch the match. If you look at the first Test and the first innings of this match, then we have failed to form a partnership. We have to improve a lot in this matter.
