“We still haven’t beaten India in India. That would be nice. And of course we had a draw streak away against England (in 2019), but if I get that chance and opportunity I will hopefully think ‘about the return’, Warner became Quoted by ‘ESPNcricinfo’.
Warner has completed 13 and eight tests in three series in England and two in India. But he has a bad record in both countries, on average 26 and 24 without a century.

Warner would turn 37 next Ashes trip to England, but for the left-handed prelude, age is just a number.
“I think James Anderson is setting the benchmark for older people these days,” he said.
“We look up to him as we move forward in our days. But for me it’s about doing my best and getting runs on the board.
“I feel like I’m in good hands. Like I said, I was out of the runs, not out of shape, so hopefully I can put some more numbers on the board as this new year begins.”
