Warner slams pitch as Shillingford rips through top order on day one of Dominica Test
Dominica (West Indies), Apr 24 : Australian opener David Warner has said he was frustrated with the pitch conditions in Dominica after West Indies spinner Shane Shillingford ripped through the top order to finish day one of the third Test with four wickets.
"In Australia it''s coming onto the bat a lot easier. They''re running away for four, especially in Perth, it''s only basically Adelaide Oval and the MCG where you really have to run for your shots," Fox Sports quoted Warner, as saying
"We''ve just got to work on getting our ones and twos and the boundaries aren''t going to come. I was hitting good shots to mid-off but they weren''t going anywhere off the square because it seemed a little dusty surface where the ball doesn''t kick on where in Australia it skids off the square," he added.
Warner's comments came after he had scored of a 100-odd balls.
Australia will resume on day two at 7-212 with Mitchell Starc on 24 and wicketkeeper Matthew Wade on 23.
