“At the end of the day, we’re disappointed with the [series] loss. But we always come here with the right frame of mind,” Warner said on Wednesday (September 27). “We’re here to do a job, we’re here to win every game that we come and face. Your disappointment lasts for 24 hours. It really, really hurt us, obviously losing the Test series from being 1-0 up and obviously being 3-0 down here, [but] for us it is about coming out and still trying to find a way to be motivated.”
“Obviously it’s disappointing to lose the series but we’ve got to look at what to play for. We’re not just walking out there for ourselves, we’re representing our country, that’s what we enjoy doing and love doing. There’s a lot of pride at stake. Obviously, we’ve got a couple of T20s after this as well.
The use of two new balls in a 21-over chase in Chennai with the ball skidding around ended his maiden ODI on Indian soil prematurely. In Kolkata, his most trusted lieutenant at Sunrisers Hyderabad – Bhuvneshwar Kumar – made him see stars with a barrage of away swingers. In Indore, when the dust settled and the surface began to obey batsmen more, he couldn’t capitalise. A 42-ball 44 was brought to a screeching halt by an off-cutter from Hardik Pandya that clipped the top of middle stump, leaving him much to reflect upon.
