Banglore: Australia opener David Warner praised his junior partner Matthew Renshaw for catching the Indian team off guard with his gutsy performance in the first Test despite being under the weather.
The 20-year-old, on his first tour of India, had scores of 68 and 31 despite suffering from upset stomach and dizziness which required medical attention. "First Test match in India, India probably didn't expect that. We have never seen him (Renshaw) play in these conditions as well, so we know how he can play and that's the good thing about this game. When you have fresh people in the team, you don't know what they are capable of as well and it adds another string to your bow," Warner said.
"He (Renshaw) played fantastic. It could have been a different story if he stayed out there or he didn't come off (in first innings) but the way he played and the way he adapted from coming off, being sick and going back out there was credit to him."
Warner however cautioned that India will come back hard at the Australians in the remaining three matches.
