David Warner: ‘I didn’t even notice’: David Warner on ‘wrong dressing room’ blunder in T20 World Cup | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Australia batter David Warner recounted a light-hearted incident during the 2024 T20 World Cup clash against Oman, where he mistakenly walked into the wrong dressing room.
Warner, who scored a crucial fifty in the match, was dismissed in the penultimate over and inadvertently headed to the Oman dressing room before being corrected.

Reflecting on the dressing room mix-up, Warner said, “I didn’t even notice.I was exhausted. So, I did not even think about it. I don’t even know what was happening. I thought someone was calling me back,” he told reporters ahead of Australia’s upcoming clash with England.

Warner played a vital role as an anchor after Australia found themselves in a challenging position at 50/3 in the ninth over. His partnership with Marcus Stoinis helped stabilize the innings, leading Australia to post a competitive total of 164. Oman, in response, struggled and could only manage 125/9, giving Australia a comfortable victory.

Looking forward to the match against England, Warner downplayed the threat posed by fast bowlers Mark Wood and Jofra Archer. England, yet to secure a win in the tournament after their only match was abandoned due to rain, will face Australia on Saturday at the Kensington Oval in Barbados.
“You just have to use their pace. Test cricket they set different fields, different balls. In Twenty20 cricket, you only have to get half an edge on it and it can go. So there’s a fair difference,” Warner explained.
The upcoming encounter between the Ashes rivals promises to be an exciting contest as Australia aim to continue their winning momentum and England look to register their first victory in the tournament.
