Lehmann backs Warner to come good in Asia

Lehmann backs Warner to come good in Asia

Australia coach Darren Lehmann backed the opening batsman David Warner to turn around his form on Asian wickets ahead of the Bangladesh series.

Warner only averages just more than 30 after 25 innings on Asian ground compared to scoring an average of 60 runs per innings on home soil. He hit only one century in Asia while his highest score was 56 in Australia’s four-match Test series in India earlier this year.

However, Lehmann feels the 30-year-old has matured over the years and can now adapt his game to the surfaces on the subcontinent.

Speaking to Cricket Australia’s website, Lehmann said,  “I think he’s realised what he can and can’t do.

“I’m pretty confident that he’s going to turn his form around on the subcontinent.

“He looks good from what I’ve seen of him so far, and he got starts in India (earlier this year) without going on.

“If he goes on, then we’ll have a really good series in Bangladesh. So for him, and for the team, we need him to make big runs as he normally does (in Australia).”
