David Warner, acknowledging the decision to select his potential successor, leaned towards Marcus Harris, highlighting Harris’ dedication, persistent efforts, and recent impressive performance.

David Warner’s impending retirement from Test cricket has sparked discussions about his potential successor. Speculations have highlighted players like Matt Renshaw, Cameron Bancroft, and Marcus Harris as viable options. There have even been unconventional suggestions of elevating Mitchell Marsh and Cameron Green in the batting order.

However, Warner himself, acknowledging the selectors’ decision, leans towards Marcus Harris due to his consistent efforts and recent impressive performance, expressing confidence in Harris’ readiness to step up, especially after his notable century during the Victoria XI vs Pakistan warm-up match.

“It’s a tough one. It’s obviously up to the selectors. But from my position, I feel like the person who’s worked their backside off and has been there for a while in the background, I think Harry’s been that person. He’s toured, he’s going to have that chance. He scored a hundred the other day,” Warner said.

“He missed out in a couple other games but he’s always been that person who was next in line. If the selectors show faith in him, then I’m sure he’ll come out and play the way he does. It’s not too dissimilar to me. If he sees it in his areas, he goes for it, plays his shots, and I think he would fit well,” he added.

Despite Usman Khawaja being the same age, Warner also indicated that Khawaja’s recent resurgence, with a mindset focused on each game, sets him apart. According to Warner, Khawaja’s exceptional mindset in the past year will allow him to continue playing for as long as he desires.
