Australia batter David Warner was seen batting with both hands in the net practice ahead of the 2023 Border-Gavaskar Trophy in India. Warner will be a crucial part of the Australian side which will hope to reclaim the BGT title after three consecutive defeats. The 36-year-old hasn’t been at his best in Indian condition and hence will hope to improve that record as well.
In the video posted by the posted Australian journalist, Louis Cameron, Warner is seen switching from batting left-handed to right-handed on back-to-back deliveries during Australia’s camp at the Karnataka State Cricket Association’s Alur Ground near Bengaluru. Warner has scored 1,148 runs against India at an average of 33.76 in 18 Tests.

But during the two occasions when the series was played in India, he managed to score only 388 runs. Addressing David Warner’s subdued form in India, the Aussie head coach Andrew McDonald enlisted trust in the opener as he believes the 36-year-old will better his record this year. He said, "There's no doubt it was a demanding summer into BBL and it creates a challenge to shift back into Test match cricket.
“But we feel as though with the preparation that we've got in mind, he'll be recharged and ready to go. He's really looking forward to the challenge of India and it's been well-documented that he hasn't had the series that he would've liked here.”
