Usman Khawaja hits backs at Shane Warne criticism with stinging reply

Shane Warne had called out Khawaja and urged him to show the desire that he wants to play for Australia more often than he is doing at present. However, the Queenslander did not take Warne's comments too well and had a response of his own to the player-turned-pundit and commentator. 

According to leading Australian cricket portals, Khawaja looked unbothered when he talked about the Australian legend's comments on him. Addressing the topic of his desire to play cricket for Australia, as questioned by Warne, Khawaja said that questions like these do not even have to be entertained. He pointed to his overall record so far and cited that he has indeed scored runs and his main focus is only in doing that consistently. Khawaja also said that if he did not feel like playing for Australia, he would have retired.
