The Pat Cummins-led Australia registered their first of the ongoing ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 against Sri Lanka, after earlier being defeated by India in the opener followed by a loss against South Africa. However, during their win over Sri Lanka, the Aussies were unhappy for several decisions, one of which was David Warner’s dismissal.

The veteran Australia opener, who was frustrated and annoyed at the same time for at the DRS call which went against him, walked off the field fuming in anger and even using abusive words. However, talking about the same, he has called in for more accountability in the system.

Warner said, “I just sprayed out loud in frustration pretty much – not just at myself – but (because) it kept low, and normally when something hits me on the leg on the outside, I know it’s pretty much going down leg.”

During a conversation on Tuesday, Warner further added, “I asked Joel when I was out there just what happened, why did he give out. He said the ball was swinging back. To his credit, it he thinks that then that’s why he’s given the decision. But then when you see the replay of how it unfolded, you get a little bit annoyed. That’s out of our control.”

 

However, wanting transparency on how the DRS decisions are made, concluded adding, “This probably won’t get across, but players’ stats go up on the board as you walk out to bat. When they announce the umpires, and they come up on the screen. I’d love to see their stats come up on the board as well.”

Australia will next take on Pakistan at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru on October 20, while Sri Lanka will take on Netherlands at the Ekana Cricket Stadium in Lucknow on October 21.
