Australia opener David Warner did not shy away from admitting his series of failure against England pacer Stuart Broad in the 2019 Ashes series.
On Twitter, Warner joked that he is trying to get some sleep before he faces Broad again in this year’s Ashes. He wrote: “Trying to get some sleep here in Australia but this bloke pops up on my TV screen!! Few months to get some sleep before the Ashes down under.”
The left-handed batsman was referring to being dismissed a staggering seven times by the Englishman in the 2019 series. Warner managed to score only 95 runs in 10 innings against Broad, only passing 11 once.
Australia will host England in December 2021 for the Ashes showdown, one of the biggest Test rivalries in the sport.
As for Warner, the batsman has had a harsh tour of India in the IPL where he was relieved of captaincy duties after consecutive poor outings of Sunrisers Hyderabad. The player was even sidelined in the last IPL game before the league was put off due to the coronavirus scare.
Nonetheless, Warner is likely to make it to the Kangaroos’ squad for the England test.
