They just love each other. They find ways to help each other out.If India are to do well he is somebody who needs to fire for them up top.
David Warner hasn’t played cricket for Australia for some time now. A hungry David Warner is a scary David Warner. He will come all guns blazing. I’m expecting some big things from him.” Dinesh Karthik said in an ICC Digital Show
