How Warner’s missing baggy green resulted in delayed start to Test


It’s been revealed that David Warner had a less than ideal start to the opening day of the first Test in Brisbane.

Warner’s treasured baggy green went missing right before the anthem ceremony that resulted in a four-minute delayed start to the Test.

The Australian’s chief cricket writer Peter Lalor detailed how Warner eventually found his baggy green and the teammate he turned to when looking for a temporary replacement.

“David Warner lost his baggy green … it’s held up the entire days play,” Lalor told SEN Test Cricket.

“If you had a look this morning, David Warner was running around in an absolute panic … he could not find his baggy green.

“He finally convinced Cameron Bancroft to lend him his baggy green for the ceremony because god forbid you do the ceremony without your sacred baggy green on your head.

“Cameron Bancroft didn’t look too happy about giving it to David Warner, I might add.

“Just after the ceremony, Bancroft reappeared with another baggy green and it’s that distinctive baggy green that’s Warner’s that has that white patch on top of the quilt.

“Guess where it was? Under Nathan Lyon’s kit bag. It had fallen on the floor and Nathan Lyon had put his bag on top of it and that’s held up play all day.”
