The nightmare Ashes for David Warner, the left-handed opening batsman of Australia, comes to a dismal end. The dynamic opening batsman found himself in tatters throughout the series. Warner was unable to deal with some classic bowling from the English fast bowlers and especially Stuart Broad who got him almost every time, when both faced each other.
David Warner in the entire series scored just 95 runs. It is the lowest tally for any opening batsman in a Test series with at least 10 innings. Adding insult to the injury, the number of boundaries scored by Steve Smith was more than the runs scored by his fellow opening batsman.
Warner’s struggles with the made him look vulnerable in the high-intensity series. The bloke made a comeback in the Test arena after ending his one-year ban which was imposed on him courtesy ball-tampering incident in Cape Town last year. He still averages a whopping 45.47 in the 79 Test matches he has played for Australia.
