“Davey’s just really struggled for any sort of consistency,” Ferg said on Dead Set Legends with Tom Rockliff, Cal Ferguson and Thomo.
“[But] he’s got us away to a start in three of the six hits… from what i’ve seen over the last 6-12 months, I believe he’ll play the next test.
“And that might surprise some people, and a lot of people would disagree with that decision, [but] i can not see them leaving him out.”

Despite scores of 4 and 1 in this Test — and getting caught nicking to slip off Broad in both innings — Ferg explained that Warner’s output in England had been good enough for him to keep being picked.
“That first innings at Lord’s, he made 66, got through the first session after we were sent in another green seamer,” Ferg said.
“That got us away… that really set our test match up, that first session.
“It could have gone either way, then he got us away in the second innings as well.
“I’m thinking off the back that, they’re gonna say he deserves another chance after missing out in this Test… I believe they’ll give him another test, rightly or wrongly.”
