Australia‘s swash-buckling opener David Warner on Friday said that he along with most other Australian cricketers continue to remain good friend with Indian cricketers. Warner’s quotes comes bare two weeks following the conclusion of a hard-fought four-Test series between India and Australia for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Following the conclusion of the series, Indian skipper Virat Kohli had said that he was no longer friends with few of the Australian cricketers, after he was targeted by a few of them on the field. Nevertheless, Warner feels that it is the duty of any cricketer to always play the game in the right spirit. Rohit Sharma: IND vs AUS Test series 2017 was one of the best
“We always gel very well. It’s a different feeling when you put both the teams on the field. Our ultimate goal is to go out there and win for the country and we will do anything to try and beat each other. “There were antics on and off the field in the Test series but we are also good friends. We enjoy laugh and that brings everyone together in international cricket. We have to keep the game in a nice fair spirit to make sure that we have grown the game of cricket. That’s the ultimate goal for us as athletes, to make sure cricket is the number one sport in the world, said Warner, as reported by PTI.
“It was a fantastic series for cricket and for fans in general with a lot of edge of the seats moment. A lot of stuff happening both on and off the field. We hoped everyone enjoyed the series. It’s disappointing not to have drawn the series or won it. But for us there was a lot of positives out of the way. We have proven that we can play in these conditions. Each individual has to rest and recover as well. There was so much international cricket. 13 in a row at home for India. It was extremely difficult for bowlers as they have to come back fresh not just for IPL and Champions Trophy,” concluded Warner.
