‘Warner an average individual’

Graeme Swann

Sydney: Former England spinner Graeme Swann has mocked David Warner’s claims that he enjoys being sledged by opponents and says the Australian batsman will struggle to maintain his confrontational style when he has a dip in form.

“He doesn’t like being sledged. I know that because he said in the press conference, ‘I love it when people have a go at me’,” Swann told a radio channel.

“People who say that don’t really like it. It’s all part of the bravado.

“He’s an intimidating player and he is riding a crest of a wave and having a purple patch.

“What will be interesting is when that patch finishes. Can he carry on with the same regard with his words and everything because I think that could make him fall harder than some other players.”

“He is a very good player, but comes across as an average individual because of the things he says,” Swann said.
