David Warner Ashes 2023
David Warner Ashes 2023 has been disappointing so far. The 36-year-old only scored 141 runs in three friendlies and now has half a century under his belt.
Warner’s struggle has been due, in part, to the challenge of facing England’s excellent bowlers. Stuart Broad has been his main nemesis and a mentor at the same time.
Despite his struggles, Warner remains a key member of the Australian team. He’s one of the most accomplished hitters and a key part of the team’s plans to win the Ashes.
Australian batsman David Warner revealed that he enjoys the humorous song created by England’s fans about his upcoming challenges against Stuart Broad.
Warner’s struggles against Broad have been well-documented, given that the English fast bowler has dismissed him 17 times in his career. During the Headingly Test, Broad had Warner out in both innings, which led to concerns about Warner’s form.
Nevertheless, Warner managed to retain his place in the team as Australia announced their squad for the Manchester Test on Wednesday.
Speaking on the Wanni and Tafers Cricket Club podcast, Warner expressed his appreciation for the banter song created by England’s fans about Broad.
Broady you’re going to face me,” Warner said, referencing the start of the song from the Hollies Stand. “I like that.”
Warner also praised Broad and said he always enjoys facing him. He claimed that Broad is an exceptional bowler, especially in the good areas. Undoubtedly, he stands tall as one of the most exceptional left-arm seamers of modern cricket, sharing this prestigious title with none other than the legendary Jimmy Anderson. Our encounters with these formidable bowlers have spanned across countless matches, and their skillful prowess continues to leave an indelible mark on the game we hold so dear.
Typically, Warner’s record against the top-order batsmen in recent years has been outstanding. He credits Broad for the way he has bowled against him.
“I don’t really think about the game, you think about the ball that’s coming your way, how you’re going to score. He bowls very well in good areas all the time,” Warner added.
So, despite the challenges, Warner remains confident in his ability to perform well and contribute to the team in the upcoming matches.
