Australia batter David Warner is often called the pocket-sized dynamo. When in full flow, the opener can completely dominate the opposition bowlers, even managing to score runs off some of the good deliveries by the bowlers. While one has seen Warner acing the reverse sweep with ease during match situation, very few people seem to know that the southpaw actually trains right-handed in the nets at times.
In a video shared by a journalist on social media, not only is Warner practicing right-handed ahead of the first Test match against Sri Lanka but he looks in complete control of his strokes.

Earlier Warner had acknowledged the support of the Sri Lankan fans towards both the teams during the ODI series. Notably, there were banners of “Thank you Australia” at the stadium being displayed by the fans in the fifth ODI.
Australia’s tour of Sri Lanka comes in the middle of an economic crisis in the island country. Even schools and offices have shut down but the cricket board has gone ahead with the series as it is expected to inject some money into their economy.
“The white ball series is done and congratulations to Sri Lanka on the win. We cannot thank the Sri Lankan public enough for coming out and supporting both teams. The crowds at the game have been next level. We could not believe what we saw yesterday and these pics tell it all,” Warner had captioned a post on social media, thanking the local people.
So far while Australia managed to clinch the T20I series, it was Sri Lanka who won the ODI series. The two teams will now face off in Two test matches, the first of which is scheduled to commence on June 29 at the Galle International Stadium.
