Proteas tell Warner to stop talking and focus on getting technique right


Melbourne, Jan 14 (ANI): Australian opener David Warner should try to improve his technique and worry about in his own game instead of thinking about Proteas players, according to current and former South Africa players.

Warner invited criticism from South Africans after he claimed that some Proteas are vulnerable and Australia will exploit their weaknesses during their series, starting February 12.

Former wicketkeeper Mark Boucher said Warner should rather stop talking and focus on getting his technique right to play Dale Steyn and Vernon Philander.

He further said if anyone is vulnerable to pace it is Warner, and added that his former teammates wouldn't stoop to Warner's supposedly low level, reports.

Boucher said South African players won't to be dragged into a war of words and would want to do their talking on the field.

Batsman Faf Du Plessis said it is pretty simple for South Africa as they have played Australia before and know their game.

He added that the Australians are quite verbal in their approach where as South Africa's brand of cricket is quite different. (ANI)
