Ashes Scout: Warner bites back at Broad while blasting CA’s ‘lack of leadership’, Perry’s all-round boost
Veteran opener David Warner has fired back at England’s pre-Ashes loudmouth Stuart Broad by saying the seamer has “got to get selected first” before he worries about how to face him.
Warner is under pressure to produce runs after struggling at Test level for more than two years but he’s gone on the front foot by taunting the bowler who dismissed him seven times in the 2019 Ashes.
The left-hander managed just 95 runs at 9.5 in that series but in an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald, he revealed that he was not concerned with having a specific plan for countering Broad.
“I don’t really have any plans, to be honest, so if he gets selected, then I’ll adjust when I’m out there,” Warner said. “Hopefully, this time around I can come out and look to score and play in a positive way.”
