Australian opener David Warner has revealed that his opening partner and teammate Chris Rogers has inspired him to have patience at the batting crease.


Warner and Rogers is Australian cricket's odd couple, on the field one is a master of patience and the other a man in a hurry, with many saying the duo makes for an unlikely opening partnership.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, although Warner admitted that he used to give Rogers a lot of flak for his 'tortoise-like' and 'boring' temperament while batting, however, he added that he is embracing Rogers' style now that he is batting alongside him.

Stating that Test cricket is about batting for long periods of time, Warner, who entrenched his place at the top of the Australian Test order in the Ashes by belting 523 runs to be the series' most productive batsman, said that he has learnt from Rogers to work out a way to survive if he could not hit the ball in the middle.

Warner also said that having Rogers, who has scored some 21,258 first-class runs and arguably puts a higher price on his wicket than anyone else in the Australian team, keeps him going during the game.
