Ponting devises a plan for Warner to counter English pacer

Ponting devises a plan for Warner to counter English pacer

Australian opening batsman David Warner has not had an ideal time in England so far as he has failed to score against the top-quality English bowling attack in the Ashes so far. Stuart Broad has been the biggest threat for him as he has gotten him out 5 times in 7 innings.

The left-hander has struggled to negate the movement by the tall fast bowler as he has found a way to dismiss him from around the wicket. The first innings of the ongoing Manchester Test was no different as the left-hander was caught behind against the same bowler from the same angle.

Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting believes that Warner would do just fine against Broad once he starts to play at the ball rather than leaving as he has been approaching the pacer with a defensive mindset.

“Davey, again, was lured into playing trying to leave. That’s the second time in the series it’s happened, and I think it’s a real mindset thing for him. If he’s looking to hit the ball and not leave the ball like he is I think he’d be fine,” he added.
