David Warner to rediscover his `natural game`
Sydney: Australian batsman David Warner has said that he would be relying on his natural game from now on to fulfill his ambition of being regarded as one of cricket`s genuine `match-winners`, following his axing from Australia`s one-day team for their India tour.
Warner`s natural style had catapulted him from being a virtual unknown to a rising star in Australia`s cricketing horizons with his 89 from 43 deliveries during a Twenty20 clash with South Africa in 2009.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Warner said that he feels that he should go back to playing in his natural style, work on his technique and respect his batting coaches even if he does not always agree with them, adding that he needs to learn how to sift through advice and criticism and take what is right for him.
Endorsing Warner`s decision, legendary Australian all-rounder Alan Davidson said that even the best intentioned advice could harm a player`s confidence, adding that a natural player gets into trouble if he is made to do what does not come to him naturally.
Warner also said that he has also learnt to `keep himself in check` from his off-field dramas which included a Twitter war with two journalists and a physical spat with English batsman Joe Root in a pub.
