World Cup: David Warner reveals reason for his ruthless form

Australian opener David Warner went on a rampage on Thursday against Bangladesh, scoring a 147-ball 166, as Australia won by 48 runs.

Warner has been ruthless ever since his return to professional cricket following a year ban in 2018.

It started in the IPL 2019, and it has continued in this World Cup.

Here's what he said on his form.

Determination

Following his return after a 12-month ban, Warner is well aware that he has had missed quite some amount of cricket.

As a result, he is determined to make it all up with some serious hitting.

"For me, it's about going out there and putting my best foot forward for the team and trying to score as many runs as I can," said Warner.

Frustrated

Warner was frustrated with his slow starts initially

Warner had faced criticism at the start of the tournament for his slow innings.

He said that while he was not planning a slow start, he got frustrated, especially against India and Afghanistan.

"Because it is generally not my game to stick there, and I usually try and go after it a little bit. Must be a bit more maturity, I think," Warner continued.

"Finchy kept telling me to hang in there"

"I've tried to get a calculation, how many fielders I've hit in the first 10. And then today, Finchy kept telling me to hang in there and bat deep and bat time. And that was in like the eighth or ninth over," revealed Warner.

Comeback

Speaking on his comeback, Warner said that he is enjoying cricket at the moment.

Also, as he did play cricket over the past year, especially with Bangladesh cricketers in BPL, it opened his eyes.

"We have played so much cricket over the last 12 months, especially the Bangladesh guys. Getting to know a lot of them has been great," Warner added.

Author's take

Warner looks to finish World Cup on a high

As he is currently the top run-scorer of the tournament, Warner would look to continue his amazing run in the coming games, especially against England.

However, he is likely to be in competition with his own team-mate and skipper Aaron Finch.

Meanwhile, the author believes that it is Warner who would be Australia's X-factor in their World Cup knock-out games.
