Warner has refused to wear the maroon of Queensland whilst playing in a practice match against Australia.
David Warner has shown his New South Wales pride by refusing to don the maroon gear whilst playing for the Queensland Bulls in a practice match against Australia.
Warner joined fellow NSW Blues players Nathan Lyon and Phil Hughes in becoming an honorary Queenslander for the day, as national team coach Darren Lehmann split his squad to see players get as much game time as possible.
The Test and NSW opener didn’t want to be seen wearing the colours of the Blues’ fierce rivals, so he wore an Australian one-day kit instead.
It’s all in good fun, and it’s great to see the rivalry alive and well in cricket.
