Australian Vice-Captain and opener David Warner said that he is hitting the ball properly but the runs aren't coming for him at the moment. However, Davy assures that the runs will come, “it will turn around “as the opener has been struggling in the ongoing four-match Test series against India.

The explosive Aussie opener, who has scored just 38, 10, 33, 17, 19 and 14 and have the tally of 131 runs at an average of 21.83 in his six innings so far. But Davy is confident that he will bounce back in the final Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in Dharamsala.

Warner told ESPNcricinfo, “I feel fantastic, I couldn't be hitting the ball any better but it's just that the runs aren't coming for me at the moment.  That will come, it will turn around. I just have to keep being disciplined and making sure that my preparation is still the same - not change anything, and just go about my business as I do.”

The explosive left-handed batsman has 18 Test centuries, out of which 14 have come at home and three in South Africa. The remaining Test hundred came against Pakistan in Dubai in 2014. Warner averages in mid-30s in India, Sri Lanka, West Indies and New Zealand.

He added, “Numbers always pop up everywhere. For me, it's about putting my best foot forward and trying to put my team in a position that we can either defend or win games. That's what that's about.”

Davy further added, “Everyone in world cricket, greats and legends of the game have had stints overseas or at home [where] they've had some form slumps. That's just the game of cricket.”

Australian Vice-Captain said that the visitors’ needs to get off to a good start as well Davy also said that he along with Matt Renshaw should be turned their initial scores into the immense figures in the Boxing Day Test. Warner concluded, “For the team's sake we need to get off to a good start. As a partnership, me and Renners have been getting off to an okay start. None for 50 over here, you need those to be none for 100. We've seen the Indians do it before, batting big and [making] partnerships of 200.”

Currently, the Border-Gavaskar Trophy poised at 1-1 and both the teams will lock horns for the Boxing Day Test in Dharamsala, which will start from 25 March 2017.
