It has been a horrible last few months for David Warner and Steven Smith. From being star players to someone, who has gone through low times of their life, they have witnessed everything in the past 10 months of time. Meanwhile, Stuart Law feels that the clubs of Steven Smith and Warner has done them a world of good.
Stuart Law believes that Australia has got a lot of talent in their ranks to survive cricket in the country. He added that there are a lot of kids, who are doing unbelievable things at the domestic level by playing for their respective clubs.
They are still the star players – Stuart Law
Meanwhile, recently, David Warner and Steven Smith were gone back to their clubs and played some cricket with the youngsters in the side. Law added that it would have recollected both the star players from where they came and the heights they achieved before committing the mistake.
“Australia definitely has got the talent, I think we’ve just lost track of what’s important. When I first started playing grade cricket in Brisbane, as a 15-year-old (I was) sharing a dressing room with Allan Border, Greg Ritchie, Kepler Wessels –- that doesn’t happen much anymore, the Test players don’t really play club cricket. Once they are away from international duties, they are wrapped up in cotton wool and put away,” Stuart Law said.
Stuart Law also felt that the youngsters would have learnt a lot from the discarded cricketers. He believes that it was a precious moment for a lot of youngsters to train with such international cricketers.
“But kids coming through learn from guys who’ve done it before. I think David Warner and Steve Smith playing club cricket this (Australian) summer has not only given them an idea of what life is really about, but it’s also helping the young kids they have been playing with how to improve. They are still very much looked up to in Australia as cricketers and Australia could do worse than get them straight back in.”,” he added.
Well, it would be interesting to see how things would pan out for both the cricketers in the upcoming few months. Currently, both the cricketers are injured while playing in Bangladesh Premier League. Coincidentally, both suffered Elbow injuries.
