Bowlers need to learn from mistakes to prevent 0-5 defeat: Ravi Shastri

"In any kind of cricket, all you want is early wickets. I think one-day cricket now is being played along the lines of Test cricket in the first 10 overs, then they will look to accelerate in the middle part and obviously look to finish it off. It's quite challenging for the opening bowlers," Warner said ahead of the fourth ODI here tomorrow.

"They've got to bowl good lines and lengths. Given, the flat wickets around the world in ODI cricket, you just got to dry the runs up and create the pressure. It's very hard when the ball's not swinging in these conditions. It's getting tougher for the bowling unit, but as a batting department, it's fantastic for us if we can keep playing the way we play and keep posting big totals," the southpaw said.
