Warner IPL: David Warner says he may skip the IPL to concentrate on Test cricket
Former England bowler Steve Harmison has defended David Warner, saying he is cricket’s version of controversial ex-Premier League footballer Robbie Savage.
Warner was involved in a spat with India batsman Rohit Sharma on Sunday, with the Australian demanding Sharma “speak English.”
Harmison believes Warner did not cross any lines when asking Sharma to repeat his comments in English.
“I think he was right,” Harmison told BBC Radio.
“Rohit Sharma’s having a go at David Warner in a language he doesn’t understand.”
Harmison made a comparison between Warner and BBC Radio co-host Robbie Savage.
“He’s someone you need in the game,” Harmison said.
“He’s going to fire people up and make his team go with him.
“I’ve got not problem.”
