New Delhi: Who will open Will Pukowski and Joe Burns with David Warner in the first test against India? Australia’s answer to this question may have been given by Warner’s injury. Warner suffered a groin injury in the second game of the ODI series, due to which it is difficult to play his Test series. It is quite possible that Australia will have to field the first pair of Will Pukowski and Joe Burns in the first test. In such a situation, Burns said he was ready to take on the responsibility of senior opener.
Joe Burns said: “Warner is injured and it’s a good opportunity for me to play the senior role. Nothing suddenly changes. It depends on who you are fighting at that time and you need to make sure that you can show your ability in the best way. If David Warner is not available, it will be a big responsibility for me. This is an opportunity for certain actors to come forward and take their responsibilities.

Joe Burns said he knew how to take responsibility. He said, “Warner is a world class player. It’s great to have them on the other end. In addition, I have always said that I will try to take on as much responsibility as possible. I’m talking about the games where Warner was out early, I wanted to do well in those games. The right-handed drummer said he doesn’t have much experience with Will Pucovski. He also said he will use the experience of games played with the “A” team.
He said: “I don’t have a lot of opportunities to play with Pukowski. I think I beat once in a team match with him in Sussex last year. Therefore, such matches (practice matches against Australia A against India) will be an important part of our preparations. The series of four trials between India and Australia begins on December 17.
