“Johnson will tear apart Warner in a boxing match”: Former Australia players on out-of-the-box idea

David Warner and Mitchell Johnson are the most discussed cricketers at the moment, all thanks to former pacer’s article on the current opener of the Australian team.

Johnson, who doesn’t share a good bond with his former teammate, not only questioned Warner’s desire to retire from Test cricket after the playing the last game against Pakistan at the Sydney Cricket Ground but also highlighted ball-tampering scandal involving Warner, Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft.

Bancroft was caught using a sandpaper on the ball during one of the Test matches between Australia and South Africa in the Rainbow Nation.

Warner and Smith were banned for one year while Bancroft was handed a nine-month ban.

“Are fans going to bring sandpaper with them to bid adieu to David Warner at the Sydney Cricket Ground? Warner’s decision on his last game is full of arrogance and disrespect to our country,” Mitchell Johnson wrote.

His was fired from his commentary assignment for Australia’s upcoming series against Pakistan.

Former England captain Michael Vaughan came up with the idea of organizing a boxing match between Johnson and Warner.

“There is a new thing going on in the boxing world where you can choose your rival. We can have Johnson in one corner and Warner in another,” Michael Vaughan said on Club Prairie Fire.

Former Australia players Adam Gilchrist and Darren Lehmann didn’t like the suggestion.

“Mitch is going to tear apart Warner. His wife holds a black belt in karate,” Adam Gilchrist said.

Lehmann agreed with his former teammate.

“Johnson will certainly tear apart Warner in a boxing match,” he said.

“They both are grown ups and can sort their differences face to face. Davey and Mitch never had a problem when I was coaching Australia. They both are really competitive,” he added.
