Australian David Warner pokes fun at himself for a dismal record against English bowler Stuart Broad
‘Trying to get some sleep…but this guy pops up!’: David Warner pokes fun at himself for a dismal record against Stuart Broad…as he sees the England bowler in the first Test against New Zealand and the Ashes looming later this year
- David Warner was fired seven times by Stuart Broad in the Ashes 2019
- The English sailor had the number of the Australian opener two years ago
- And Warner joked that he couldn’t sleep watching Broad this afternoon
- Broad side with England to take on New Zealand in first Test at Lord’s
Australia opener David Warner caused a lot of cricket fans online this afternoon when he fooled himself over his poor recent record against English sailor Stuart Broad.
Broad joins Joe Root as he takes on New Zealand this week in the first Test of the summer at Lord’s, and has even been promoted to vice-captain.
And as Warner the English sailor watched Ross Taylor in the Home of Cricket, the Australian quipped: ‘I’m trying to get her to sleep in Aus (sic), but this guy shows up on my TV screen!!
David Warner made fun of himself for his bad recent record against Stuart Broad
The English sailor fired Warner seven times out of ten during the 2019 Ashes series
‘Several months to sleep before the Ashes down under’, accompanied by two laugh-crying emojis.
Broad had Warner’s number in the last Ashes series and sent his opponent away seven times out of ten.
But Warner had the last laugh as Australia retained the Ashes after a 2-2 draw two years ago.
The pair will likely face each other again when the Ashes Down Under kicks off this winter.
Speaking last year about how he was so successful against one of Test cricket’s most consistent opening batsman, Broad said: “Having played a lot against him over the past eight or nine years, I found myself a bigger bowler, then he leaned back in the crease he always cut or squared me a lot and hit me to the limit.
Broad will likely encounter Warner again during the Ashes starting this winter
“I did quite a bit of research on that Ashes series on how to get him out because my record against him was really average.
“I just decided I would try to hit the stumps every ball, that was my way of thinking. I’m not going to try to wave it off of him because I think that gave him a little width.
“I’m just going to try and scramble the seam and if he slams it right past me for four hours, I’m happy. I probably bowled a little fuller than I planned, but it worked.’
