Australia’s David Warner says he is relishing the jeers of the Old Trafford crowd in third Ashes Test.
Warner was banned from the warm-up games and the first two matches for punching Joe Root in a bar in June. He was recalled for the ongoing third Ashes Test against England.
“The interaction with the crowd has been fantastic, I just have to smile and take it,” Warner said. “Hopefully I can turn them round.”
“I’m just enjoying being back in the team. All the misdemeanours are behind me at the moment and I’m just enjoying playing cricket.”
However, the 26-year-old Warner insisted he was serious about his Test career and helping Aussies to achieve victory.
“I just want to get a win on the board for Australia. We’ve lost six in a row now and hopefully we can start that off tomorrow (Monday) and win the series 3-2.
“I wouldn’t say I’m lucky to be playing in this series. I know what I did was a terrible thing. I had to learn my lessons and I’ve gone away and scored runs and now I’m back here and playing in the third Test.”
England, 2-0 up with three games to play and Australia required draw in this match to retain the Ashes 2013.
