Srinagar: The Australia senior batter David Warner is accomplished left handed batter but has a talent of batting right handed as well and on Sunday he displayed that quality against India spinner Ravi Ashwin in second ODI in Indore.
During the run-chase in the second ODI of the three-match series in Indore, David Warner decided to bat right-handed when Ashwin came to bowl.
It was during the 13th over when Warner decided to switch his stance and bat right-handed against the veteran India off-spinner. On the third delivery of the over, he swept Ashwin for a four, leaving the entire Australian dugout in splits.
When Ashwin returned to bowl in the 15th over, Warner continued with his mind games as he was ready to bat right-handed. However, he paid a heavy price for it as he got dismissed on the very first ball.
Ashwin bowled a full delivery and Warner pre-empted the reverse sweep, getting into a normal left-handed stance, and he fell over on the shot.
The ball hit his pad and the on-field umpire raised his finger to declare David Warner out. Warner went on to have a chat with his partner and decided against a review.
After he walked back to the dugout, replays were shown on the screen that suggested that there was a clear inside edge, but Warner was unaware of the fact. He scored 53 runs during the run-chase off 39 balls, with 7 fours and 1 six, before walking back to the hut.
