David Warner opened up on Mitchell Johnson’s criticism of his retirement plans, saying his former team-mate is entitled to his opinions, however scathing. “It wouldn’t be a summer without a headline, would it?” he said at the launch of Fox Cricket’s summer coverage in Parramatta on Friday. “It is what it is. Everyone’s entitled to their own opinions. Moving forward, we’re looking forward to a nice Test over in the west.”Warner hoping to call time on a Test career after Australia faces Pakistan on his home deck at the SCG in the third and final match of the series that begins in Perth next week. Refusing to add fuel to the fire comes as Australian captain Pat Cummins said the Test team would be “fiercely protective” of the veteran opener in the face of external attacks. Warner, focused on ending his career on a high, said he learned long ago to knuckle down in the face of criticism like Johnson’s. “My parents ingrained that into me,” he said. “They taught me every day to fight and work hard.”
