Warner to take Warne's help to become full-fledged Test spinner

Melbourne, Mon, 09 Apr 2012 ANI

Melbourne, Apr 9 (ANI): To become a full fledged Test leg-spinner, Australia opening batsman David Warner intends to take help from his long-time idol Shane Warne.

Warner claimed the first two wickets of his cricket career in the first Test against West Indies.

His first wicket-taking delivery was little simple delivery that batsman Kirk Edwards could have dispatched to virtually any part of the ground, The Australian reports.

But, seemingly confounded by too many options, he smashed it straight back down the pitch where Warner somehow reached backwards to pluck it out of the air.

"I actually surprised myself. It got to me pretty fast and he hit it pretty hard. Lucky I put my hands out. Ian (Gould), the umpire, said to me that if I didn't catch it, it would have hit him because he didn't see it," Warner said.

Given that Warner does his best to imitate Warne as a bowler, it only made sense to ask him if he planned to seek out history's greatest leg-spinner for help and advice.

"I definitely will. From growing up as a kid I've modelled myself, through his run-up and everything. If you want to be the best you might as well model the best," Warner said.

"Everything that he's done and everything that I've tried to look at, how he gets his wickets, how he goes about shuffling the batsman across the crease ... that's how a bowler would think. But for me to get the opportunity to bowl and just turn into a normal leg-spinner is amazing," he added. (ANI)
