As part of the ongoing Border Gavaskar Trophy 2023 tournament on the tour of India, Australia, who lost the first two Tests, then won the third Test in Indore by 9 wickets.

In the first innings of the second test, Travis Head, who came as an opener in place of the injured David Warner, gave a good performance. Cameron Green re-entered the middle order and performed well. On the other hand, senior opener David Warner has been failing consecutively for a year… Warner, who scored 1 and 10 runs in the first Test in Nagpur, scored 15 runs in the first innings of the second Test in Delhi.

A bouncer off Mohammad Siraj’s bowling hit David Warner hard. David Warner, who did not bat in the second innings of that match due to this injury, was absent from the rest of the Test series.

David Warner, who played 14 Test matches from January 2022, scored 607 runs at an average of 26.39. In this, if the double century in the Melbourne Test match against South Africa is removed, the remaining 13 Tests are 400 runs…

So who should be played in the final of the World Test Championship? David Warner? Or is it Travis Head? Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting made interesting comments on this matter.

‘David Warner should be played in the final match of the World Test Championship. After the Test Championship final, some sensational decisions have to be made to win the Ashes series in England…
David Warner does not have a good record in England. But it is not right to leave David Warner aside. Warner should be played in one match in the Ashes series, if he plays well then he should continue…or better get another player…

Everyone is talking about David Warner’s retirement. Warner would have retired after the Sydney Test match in Australia. But he played 100th test in Melbourne and scored 200 runs… Playing 100th test in career and scoring a double century is a big achievement for anyone..

Any cricketer wants to retire in front of his home crowd. But if we want to get such a chance again, we have to wait for a year…’ commented former Australian captain Ricky Ponting.

Team India will reach the final of the World Test Championship if they win or at least draw in the fourth Test in Ahmedabad. India and Australia will once again meet in the final of the ICC World Test Championship in England in the first week of June.
