David Warner said, “I think I left a few out there, to be honest, and getting out with 70 balls to go was disappointing for me. 140-0 was good as an opening partnership, but Amir bowled really well, especially coming here and bowling a Test line and length was very brave and he got his rewards for it. There was a leak here about a week ago, but that's out of our control.”
