Australian opener David Warner says he has a plan of attack in Sri Lanka’s turning tracks despite never having played Test cricket in the island.
Australia take on Sri Lanka in a three Test series in July-August, and having toured the country as a part of the national squad in 2011, Warner believes an aggressive mindset is the way to go against the island nation’s spinners.
Speaking to Cricket Australia he said, “It’s about giving yourself an opportunity to score, I think we can get too bogged down in those situations, you lose your way of thinking and the remedy of that is you’ve got to try and score runs. If I’m looking to score then I’m in the right frame of mind.”
The opening batsman averages 36.16 in Asia compared to a career average of 50.06.
Steve Smith’s side will be banking on a big series from Warner as they look for their first Test series win in Asia since the 2011 tour of Sri Lanka, with their six matches on the continent since bringing six losses
