Ashes 2021-22: Warner relishes Broad battle and questions England selection panel

The
Australia
batter,
who
has
twice
come
close
to
a
century
amid
a
dominant
series
for
the
hosts,
was
removed
for
30
by
the
returning
Broad
on
day
one
of
the
fourth
Test.

Australia,
who
lead
3-0,
closed
on
126-3
at
the
SCG
after
only
46.5
overs
of
play
were
possible
due
to
rain.

Broad
had
been
left
out
of
two
of
the
first
three
matches
and
this
week
expressed
his
frustration
over
England’s
failure
given
he
has
“not
really
done
anything”
and
missed
the
chance
to
play
on
favourable
pitches.

Another
veteran
England
bowler,
James
Anderson,
who
missed
the
first
Test
earlier
in
the
series,
also
struck
on
Wednesday,
removing
Marcus
Harris
for
38.

And
Warner
suggested
Australia
are
glad
to
be
up
against
two
of
the
world’s
top
bowlers.

“I
really
enjoy
giving
you
guys
a
good
story,
which
is
fantastic
and
it
builds
up
the
game,”
Warner
said
of
his
duels
with
Broad,
who
had
him
caught
by
Zak
Crawley.

“Me
and
Broady
love
it
when
we’re
out
there.
It’s
good
fun,
good
funny
banter.

“I
tried
to
drive
the
ball
too
straight,
that
was
my
disappointment,
but
it’s
awesome
to
see
Broady
back
out
there.

“He’s
a
world-class
bowler.
Him
and
Jimmy
Anderson
bowling
at
us
is
great.

“Obviously,
they
would
have
been
disappointed
with
some
of
these
Test
matches,
not
playing
together,
but
that’s
for
their
selection
panel.

“It’s
great
to
come
up
against
the
world’s
best
from
England.”

Mark
Wood
removed
Marnus
Labuschagne
(28)
before
the
close
as
Australia
struggled
to
build
on
a
strong
start
that
had
seen
them
reach
111-1.

It
means
Steve
Smith
(6
not
out)
and
Usman
Khawaja
(4no)
will
be
under
pressure
when
they
return
to
the
crease
on
Thursday.

England
are
looking
to
avoid
a
5-0
whitewash,
a
fate
they
have
suffered
twice
in
Australia
since
the
turn
of
the
century.

Amid
their
struggles,
former
England
batsman
Rob
Key
cannot
comprehend
why
Broad
has
not
been
a
regular.

He
told
Sky
Sports:
“You
absolutely
have
bogey
bowlers.
I
had
about
18!

“For
David
Warner,
it
is
Broad

which
makes
it
even
more
ridiculous
that
Broad
did
not
play
that
first
Test
in
Brisbane.

“Warner
would
have
been
sat
there
thinking,
‘I
could
really
do
without
facing
this
bloke’.

“All
Warner’s
preparation
would
have
been
about
how
he
was
going
to
combat
and
defeat
Broad
and
score
runs
against
him

and
then
England
don’t
pick
him!
This
just
shows
how
poor
a
decision
that
was.

“Now
Broad
has
ended
up
playing
on
the
two
pitches
so
far
with
the
least
amount
of
movement
and
missed
out
on
the
two
pitches
that
would
have
done
a
lot
for
him.”
