Sydney, January 2 () Opener David Warner said Thursday that he is still in shock at the rising horrors of forest fires that took over Australia and paid tributes to firefighters and volunteers who are doing everything possible to put out the devastating flames, calling them real. heroes

Australia faces one of the most devastating forest fire crises that has already left at least 18 dead.

Disturbed by the horrors of the deepening crisis, Warner shared a photo of a person with a dog watching the devastating forest fire.

I just saw this picture and I'm still in shock. When we go out to play tomorrow, not only to the Australian team, but also to New Zealand, we never forget how privileged we are to live where we do and do what we do. We wrote on a social networking site.

My heart, the heart of my family is with you. These fires are beyond words. For each firefighter, volunteer for each family, we are with you. You are the true heroes. We are proud, he added.

Teams in Australia and New Zealand will pay tribute to firefighters and volunteers before the start of the game on Friday and will also wear black bracelets as a sign of respect for the dead.
