The ball will still go the same distance, still go to the fence, well still get our ones and twos. The odd nick might not carry this time,” said Warner. The MCC recently announced that from October onwards, bat size will be restricted to a maximum of 108mm in width, 67mm in depth and 40mm edges. The current bat that Warner uses has a depth of 85mm, 18mm more than what will be allowed from October. Warner is confident that Pat Cummins will do the job for the team in the absence of injured pacer Mitchell Starc. “We know he?s got a lot of pace which he will definitely bring and that?s one thing we always talk about. You always have to have someone who is a spearhead quick and that?s always been the Australian approach and we know he?s got that firepower,” he said. “It?s been a long time (since his last Test) and he?s been working his backside off to get his body right for one and it was great to see him come back and play the Shield game the other day and bowl well. We know with Patty as (Starc?s) replacement we?re going to have that firepower there if the selectors go that way,” Warner added. PTI BS ATadvertisementlast_img
