Merv Hughes And Cal Ferguson Back David Warner To Go And Dominate In India
On the post-Boxing Day Test episode of Willow Talk, Merv Hughes and Cal Ferguson have both backed David Warner to go to India in February and dominate the Test series.
“I think with the form he’s shown here, he’s got the feeling for batting long again,” Ferg said.
“That’s so important for India, if you can get an opener in good form over there, it’s flat early in the Test match, bat first, get a guy to make 150-200, I think he could really be the man to really tear the initial stages up for us.”

Merv never felt Warner’s spot was under threat.
“No one at Shield level is really putting their hand up and kicking the door down, and that’s what you’ve gotta do,” he said.
“The fact that we’ve gone to Big Bash now and no one’s played first class cricket for four weeks makes it increasingly hard for those guys to get a look in.”
