While he didn’t discover much into the details of Warner’s” relatively particular” textbook communication, Johnson admitted that it was one of reasons, along with the ball- tampering reproach, behind his column of the West Australian.

“I got a communication from Dave, which was relatively particular. I tried to ring to try and talk to him about it, which I have always been open to. I know I have been open to the guys when I finished playing. I said if I am in the media and writing effects or saying effects that you do not like, just come and speak to me,” the former Australia leader said on The Mitchell Johnson Cricket Show.

“It was no way a particular thing also until this point. This is presumably what drove me to write the composition as well, part of it. It was surely a factor. Some of the stuff that was said in that, I will not say it. I suppose that is over to Dave to say it if he wants to talk about it. There was some stuff in there that was extremely disappointing, what he said, and enough bad to be honest,” he added. Know More Latest Cricket News…
