“I wish him all the best and I know our team wishes him all the best”
Australia opening batsman David Warner has announced that he hopes England batsman Jonathan Trott gets well soon after he pulled out of the ongoing Ashes series with a stress-related illness.
Warner’s support for Trott comes after he admitted that he went “a little bit too far” when calling the South African-born batsman “pretty poor and pretty weak”.
“We didn’t know anything about an illness or what not,” Warner said. “It’s sad to see anyone go through that tough period and obviously if he’s got an illness that’s there we hope he gets the right people to help him out.
“We know the world-class kind of batter he is: he averages 50 in Test cricket and he has been a great player, a rock for England.
“I wish him all the best and I know our team wishes him all the best. I hope he gets well soon and [is back] playing the best cricket he can.”
