Seeing Warner’s batting, Sean Abbott said, “He plays golf right-handed.”

India and Australia are currently playing a three-match one-day international series, and India has comfortably won the series. With the ODI World Cup 2023 rapidly approaching, the victory would do a lot to boost their confidence. India delivered an outstanding performance in the 2nd ODI, winning by a score of 99 runs. The fact that veteran Australian opener David Warner batted right-handed against Indian spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, though, was one of the game’s most talked-about moments.

Warner looked comfortable at the crease as he amassed 53 runs off of 39 deliveries. He intended to bat right-handed against Ashwin. However, he lost his wicket shortly after. In a similar spirit, Australian speedster Sean Abbott spoke up to offer an intriguing perspective on Warner’s right-handed batting in a high-stakes game. According to Abbott, in an effort to disrupt Ashwin’s routine, he experimented because the Southpaw plays golf right-handed.

I think if David Warner is just going to sit there and bat left-handed, Ashwin is not going to miss his length too often. With the ball spinning so much, he’s got the one that goes the other way, the straighter one, and all the variations along with that. Davey just thought he need to change it up,” Sean abboat said to OneCricket. 

“He plays golf right-handed, we see how dynamic he is with his switch-hitting and stuff, so he weighed up those options. He’s done it before, he tries batting in the nets,” he added.

Australia lost the ODI series against India and the second match by a wide margin

Australia was unable to chase down a revised target of 317 runs in 33 overs due to rain. It was clear that the Australians were under pressure from the run rate because they were consistently losing wickets. Mohammed Shami, one of the best bowlers, stunned Australia’s batting lineup with a devastating bowling performance. With that india win the series with a 2-0 lead.
