Warner a trump for tour to India is a tip from columnist
GUEST COLUMN with Michael Bourke
AB Medal winner David Warner is probably the trump card for the Aussies in India next month.
Warner has had a wonderful 12 months with the bat apart from the Sri Lanka tour. His value when fielding is also worth a lot of runs, after witnessing first hand at the Gabba Test match this year how many runs he saves on the cricket field.
I am predicting that Warner will produce a similar performance to Matthew Hayden's run feast in the sub-continent many years ago.
The Warwick Australia Day cricket carnival continues to grow each year.
Players enjoyed playing with the orange cricket balls in the final for the first time.
The association is also considering allowing bowlers the option of bowling over or around the wicket in next year's carnival without having to advise the batsman.
This would mean the batter at the non-strikers end would be required to stand off the cricket wicket as the bowler enters his run-up and the bowler would have to choose which side of the wicket he bowls before passing the umpire. With batters not being required to notify the bowlers of a switch hit, this innovation might level things up.
My horse tip is for the Bjorn Baker trained Music Magnate at Rosehill.
