Ever since David Warner announced his retirement from Test cricket, there have been continuous discussions about who will replace David Warner, especially in Test cricket. Actually, Marcus Harris was called for the Ashes tour while Cameron Bancroft and Matt Renshaw are the two other options.

Pat Cummins gave a surprising answer regarding David Warner

Pat Cummins said about the upcoming Test series, “I have had some informal talks with Ronnie (coach Andrew McDonald) and we have always said let’s work on this. We have a little time till the next match, so I am sure the selectors will sit after this and decide on it (the opener).

The good thing is that we have no shortage of options. There are probably three or four guys who can play up there and we think they’ll do a great job, but honestly, we haven’t talked about it in too much depth yet.”

Cummins further said, “Uzi (Usman Khawaja) was not a specialist till then, there was only one place available in the team and he forced his way into the team. So ideally here you should have someone who has experience of opening, but I don’t think this is something that cannot be changed. It is very difficult to replace Warner.”
