David Warner will hope to make amends in the upcoming Ashes after having a disastrous run the last time he toured England to play the historic series.
David Warner made a memorable appearance in 2019 as Tim Payne’s Australia traveled to England and the Ashes drew 2-2. The elegant left-hander averaged a meager 9.50 in the 10 innings he played.
Stuart Broad proved to be Warner’s nemesis as the Pacer ejected Warner 7 out of 10 times. Warner’s batting average was the lowest in the opening 10 innings of the season, breaking the record of 13.60 points set by John Darcy in 1958.
Australia representative Pat Cummins told Western Australia ahead of the first skeleton test on June 16 that Warner is better. This time everything is set and fans will see a new version of him when he takes over as Edgbaston.
“Davey must have put a lot of thought into the last four years about Broad and how he would play if given the chance,” Cummins said.
“Last time it wasn’t Davy’s way, but this time we’ll see a different Davey.” The naturally aggressive hitter admitted he was too defensive four years ago.
You’ve seen our players be very brave when they sense an opportunity to hit a spinner: Pat Cummins
Gave us a glimpse of what it would be like for The 30-year-old said hitters play with a positive approach to spins and will continue to do the same tricks on the ashes.
“If you’re a front-line bowler and you don’t stop the ends, hopefully you can take a lot of wickets,” said Cummins.
“It’s an opportunity for the batsman. I think that’s the art of batting when you feel you can keep your run rate without giving up the wicket. They should have.” They were eccentric and sometimes very brave.
Steve Smith, who scored the decisive century against India in the first round of last week’s World Test Championship final, explained the importance of applying pressure when the going gets tough. When the best chance comes.
“Sometimes you have to work a little harder, other times you just have to absorb,” said Steve Smith.
“If there is an opportunity to be more aggressive, we can. there is potential.”
