Ricky Ponting’s Huge Statement On David Warner’s Poor Form In IPL 2024

Former Australian cricketer David Warner had been in average form in the 17th edition of the Indian Premier League. Despite his weak approach with the bat, Warner has got a place in the Australian squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024.

Ponting commented on Warner’s form during the T20 tournament, saying Warner began well with some good performances against RR and CSK. However, after his injury, he struggled to stay consistent.

“He actually started the tournament really well. His scoring rate was really good. At the start of the tournament, he was opening the batting for us with Mitchell Marsh, and that combination was working really well. He (Warner) didn’t really hit scores, and then he got a nasty hit on his hand,” Ponting told ICC.

Ponting also described Warner as a “feisty competitor” and said he will be eager to perform once he’s back in the Australian team.

“Basically, had the worst bone bruising and his contusion on the back of his hand that he’s ever seen. He’s a feisty little competitor that once the World Cup comes around, he hits the Australian colours back on again. Then I’ve got no real concerns about him,” he added.

In the IPL 2024, Warner scored 168 runs in eight innings with an average of 21 with a strike rate of 134.40. He will be playing in his eighth T20 World Cup and plans to retire from international cricket at the end of the tournament.
