It is fair to say that David Warner loves batting in Australia. It is even fairer to say David Warner loves batting against Pakistan bowlers on home soil. No matter what form he is going through, something triggers Warner whenever he takes guard against Pakistan that pulls on his ‘pocket-sized dynamo’ moniker and pulverizes them with absolute disdain.
The swashbuckling opener has successfully put his Ashes horrors behind him in the ongoing home series against Pakistan by racking up back-to-back triple-digit scores. After scoring a century in the opening Test at the Gabba, Warner went ahead and smoked his maiden triple-century at the Adelaide Oval, breaking a chunk of records in the process. One of the major reasons for David Warner’s horror show and continued struggle in the Ashes besides the obvious things like Dukes ball and the conditions was Stuart Broad.
So, with Warner smoking the life out of Pakistan attack, what is the best way to get him out? Simple! Morph any of the Pakistani fast bowlers face with that of Stuart Broad’s and you’ll see the difference! At least, this is what one of the fans on Twitter did! And, Broad, who has taken more than 450 Test wickets, couldn’t stop himself from laughing. The champion English fast bowler replied to the fan where he said, “Really made me smile”

Broad had a wood over Warner throughout the 2019 Ashes
Warner endured a horror Ashes series where he could manage just 95 runs across ten innings and was dismissed by Broad on seven occasions- a world record. One of the main reasons why Stuart Broad was so successful against Warner during the recently-concluded Ashes series was that he came from around-the-wicket and consistently bowled full and straight to the southpaw, challenging both his outside edge as well as his stumps, something the Pakistani bowlers rarely did.
When they did try to come around-the-wicket, they bowled mostly at a back-of-a-length and Warner kept cutting them throughout his marathon knock of 335 not out. Broad, on the other hand, is currently plying his trade in England’s two-match Test series in New Zealand, where once again he emerged as their leading bowler as he claimed four wickets in Hamilton on the second day to help his side bowl the Kiwis out for 375.
