Dave Warner's first innings at the MCG is a big one for him.

Persistent rain meant Australia's first innings didn't begin until Day 5 of that Test against the West Indies.

Test legend Mike Hussey thinks it's clear from Warner's press conferences that he knows he's under pressure.

"He's saying the right things, but obviously there's other stuff in his mind," Hussey told Macquarie Summer of Cricket.

"He does look a little tentative at the moment."
