Warner wrote on Instagram: ‘I want to apologize to Mohammad Siraj and the Indian team. Racism or abuse is never acceptable anywhere and I hope the public will behave better from the start ”.
As for the game, Warner said it was good to come back after being out for the first two games due to injury.
He said, “It was great to come back. The result of the match, however, is not what we wanted but it is Test Cricket. We played cricket for five days. But well done to India which has made a big comeback. This is the reason why we love cricket so much, it is not an easy game. Now watch the final game in Brisbane and playing it is a different pleasure.
