Durban: David Warner has jumped to the defence of Cameron Bancroft after taking his opening partner aside following a deflating dismissal on Thursday that has heaped more pressure on his spot in the Australian side. Bancroft, 25, is under the pump, having continued a lean run stretching back to the second Ashes Test in Adelaide by scoring only five on day one of the first 31

The hardest working man in showbiz. That’s no longer James Brown (may he boogie in peace) but David Warner. The former earned that moniker for the way he relentlessly sang, danced and played his music around the world. The latter is keeping a similar tempo through the most productive years of his own career in the spotlight. It was nearing midnight before 29
