SPORT-IPL-WARNER 2 LAST

first_imgOn sending Eoin Morgan at Number Six, Warner said the On sending Eoin Morgan at Number Six, Warner said the team needed someone like him to finish off the game, but that could not happen as the batters failed to draft a good partnership. “I wanted Morg for the last ten overs. Morg is a good finisher and we needed this today. If we had two batsmen going great guns, we could have had a close finish,” he said. Asked what was the other reason for RCB winning the game, Warner said apart from their batters, their fielding did wonders for them. “When two world class players (Kohli and AB) are going great guns, it is a very very tough ask to stop them. The boundaries here are very short which becomes very difficult for bowlers, but I am not taking any credit away from Bangalore, they played very well, and importantly fielded very well in first six overs. I feel the best fielding side is going to win the competition,” he said. On English player James Taylors forced retirement due to a heart problem, Warner wished his speedy recovery and hoped he keeps himself involved in the game that he loves. “I saw the tweet today it is a very sad news. I spoke to Morgs before. It was all-of-a-sudden thing. We know how determined he was to play the game. We know how well he played for England. “My thoughts are with him and with rest of his team. I wish him speedy recovery and hope somehow he keeps himself involved in the game that he loves,” he said. PTI BDN ATK ATKadvertisementlast_img
