Sydney, Aug 15 (ANI): Australian opener David Warner has said that he is still 'gutted' by his side's fourth Ashes Test loss which gave arch-rivals England a 3-
0 series win.
According to News.com.au, although Warner's 109-run opening stand with Chris Rogers set the foundation for an unlikely tilt at the 299-run victory target, however Australia lost to England by 74 runs when Warner was third man out for 71.
Stating that the loss was gutting for him, Warner said that it took him half an hour to get over his dismissal, adding that he still cannot believe that they lost the match in only four days.
According to Warner, if he and the other batsmen could have got through the tough period of England's Stuart Broad's six-wicket bowling spell in the second innings, which finished the game with eleven wickets for England, then they could have come back and won the match the next day.
The report further said that Australia's largely inexperienced middle order seemed overwhelmed by the occasion, with Warner admitting that they were intimidated by the rowdy English crowd, and adding that as an opener, it is hard for him to relax with the crowd environment.
Warner further confessed that when he came back to the Ashes squad and got booed walking out in the Manchester Test, he felt nervous, very small and believed that everything was against him. (ANI)
