    But what about his heroic century before lunch - surely that's the highlight of everyone's cricket watching lives? Wonder who gives him the willies more, Ashwin or SBW...

    Steve Rixon says he's the best fielder in the world, so yeah I reckon you're on the mark there

    Ed Cowan has no chance, you only need to average 15 to make into the Aussie squad, his average this season is way to high for them.

    Warner shits me outside of SA and Australia. He really lives up to his flat track tag.

    Cowan....ugh no thanks. I'd rather watch Warner fail than watch Cowan nudge his way to 20 over a couple of hours.

    perhaps the greatest flack track bully in cricket history - just brilliant - that century before lunch was special spine tingling stuff - he's just f**king awesome, what a player, what a man

    Does he ever get any criticism from sports journos or Lehmann. Seems to be a protected species. Always been a batsman with limited skills but there's really no excuses for his piss poor fielding. Vice captain... wow talk about scraping the bottom of the barrel.

    ...the door to the aeroplane to take him back home with his passport stamped "Never to represent Australia again"?

    Warner lives off that one series in South Africa. It is literally the only series where he has scored consistent runs against quality bowling, on a decent pitch.

    In contrast, Shaun Marsh's career has always been defined by that series against India where he average about 3.

    I suspect if you looked at their records minus those two series, their records would be eerily similar.

    877 days without an overseas test century.

    Someone get him on Who Dares Wins, make a big score on an Indian deck or let Tania Zaetta do it.

    Another fantastic knock by Mr Vice Captain

    Useless overrated dud who can only score runs at home.

    For the conditions, on that day, held in isolation, it was fairly exciting to witness it.

    In India...and elsewhere for that matter, even Tasmania, it's LOLworthy.

    Unless he plays in South Africa Warner should be banned from touring overseas.
    A flat track dummy.

    If they're not going to drop him perhaps swap him to 4 and open with Sean Marsh.
    Marsh has done better than Warner on this tour. Not a huge statement I know, but still.

    Man what a different series this would have been had Warner pulled his finger out.

    One test to go. He can be the difference, though it might be too late.

    Expecting the pitch in the 4th test to be a howler. India can't afford to draw it, they need to win.
