Broad feels Warner will be better as compared to 2019 Ashes


David Warner had a nightmare of time facing Stuart Broad. The bowler got him out seven times in 104 deliveries and the batsman managed an average of only 9.5 runs throughout the England Ashes. Things are likely to be different this time. With home condition advantage and Kookaburra ball, David Warner is likely to be better prepared, if not score runs with ease against the lanky fast bowler.

Things have turned out dramatically for Australia, especially for David Warner, who didn’t get along with his IPL franchise Sunriser’s Hyderabad. Warner was first stripped off from the captaincy. But much to the surprise of everyone, the southpaw was not even considered for playing 11 for most of the matches. SRH assistant, Brad Haddin revealed that the player was excluded from the playing 11 due to non-cricketing reasons.

Warner had the last laugh and scored runs at the crucial stages when Australia needed. He turned the game around in the semi-final and contributed significantly in the final too, helping Australia to win their maiden T20 World Cup. England are wary that Warner may unleash this time. Stuart Broad believes that the dominance of 2019 might not be repeated against Warner.

Broad in his own words, “I’ve got to take positives from what happened in England, but also realize it was a couple of years ago, conditions were different”

“We might have slightly different field settings, attack from a different angle, but I’m realistic.”

Michael Clarke told the Big Sport Brekky radio program that if the batsman gets going in the first test match, it would be very hard for the bowlers to stop him. Clarke in his own words, “I’m telling you: if Davey gets a start in this first Test match, if conditions are good for batting at the Gabba, he will be the leading runs scorer. He will smoke this England attack. No Jofra Archer. He will destroy them in Australian conditions”

One of the primary reasons why Warner is likely to do well this time around is the absence of swing and seam conditions like in England, the KookaBura ball which seams and swings less than the Duke, and the home crowd. Coupled all this the sky-high confidence of the Southpaw, and it appears we will have an interesting battle to watch between the bat and the ball.
