Australia’s opener David Warner said that he is hungrier and determined to make his return to the red-ball cricket and hit the three-figure mark. The batsman alongside the then Australian captain, Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft were found guilty of ball-tampering hence handed a ban by Cricket Australia. 

 

The trio is set to appear back in the Test cricket and Warner, who has been in top touch in limited-overs cricket, wants to maintain his consistency in the Test cricket as well. 

"I look back and reflect on how I've played over here [in England], I fought hard," Warner told cricket.com.au after play on Wednesday, 24 July. "[In the practice game] I got some pretty good balls, and that's what happens in this game. You've got to try to forget about that and not overthink it.” 

 

"In the [2015] Lord's Test, I was a bit upset and missed out with [38 and 83] and the other boys got 200 [Chris Rogers made 173 while Steve Smith scored 215]. They're always in the back of your mind, but now I'm just a bit hungrier and determined to play that longer innings."

 

The southpaw also thinks he has settled with his nerves and doesn’t throw away his wicket anymore,

"You saw that I hung in there a lot. The old me probably would have thrown the bat at it quite often. Today, that was all I was focusing on, making sure my feet and my decision-making were on point. I was happy with that, but I've got to try to get those three figures."
