Australia and New South Wales opener David Warner has done something sensible at last.
The left hander has wished Trott a speedy recovery which would help the explosive batsman rebuild his long-lost reputation. After he was crucified a lot by everyone including Stuart MacGill and Steve Waugh, the Aussie opener accepted that he crossed his line.
In a press conference, he said: “We know the world-class kind of batter he is and he has been a great player, a rock for England. I wish him all the best and I know our team wish him all the best.
“I hope he gets well soon and is back playing the best cricket he can.”
He went on to address the criticism he had received, adding: “I was always going to cop criticism.
“As I said before, I probably stepped over the line and at the end of the day it’s cricket.
“We’ve got to go out and play the best we can and as hard as we can without crossing that line. Going public and saying what I did probably did go over the line. I hope he gets well because we know the type of player he is and he will bounce back.”
Meanwhile, Warner also assured everyone that everything that has happened in the last few days including those comments attacking England won't affect his performance and he would continue with his good form when the second test starts at The Adelaide Oval from December 5.
Warner scored an impressive century in the second innings at The Gabba and he will be hoping to repeat that as the Australian side look to double their series lead.
