In a recent interview, veteran Australian opener David Warner acknowledged that his forgettable performance in the 2019 Ashes series was significantly impacted by outside noises.

The left-handed batter added that getting the bowlers to change their line and length is essential for scoring runs.

Warner averaged 9 points and only produced one fifty during the 2019 Ashes series’ 10 innings, totaling just 95 runs. Stuart Broad, a right-arm seamer, was his archenemy, dismissing the left-hander seven times.

The southpaw remembered that he completely derailed himself during the 2019 leg after straying from his game plan. The 36-year-old stressed that his 61 games for Leeds were those in which he played most naturally.

According to Perth Now, he said: “If I’m being honest with myself, I probably strayed from my game plan, which is to score. I was listening to some other voices, which, in my opinion, didn’t really fit my game. At Leeds, I thought I played my best baseball, which was how I usually batted. You can only score runs if you can exert pressure on the bowlers and manage to throw off their line and lengths. I’m most productive then. “

In terms of Test cricket, the New South Wales batter’s record in England is not particularly stellar. He only manages a 26.04-point average with seven fifty-sixes in 13 innings.

David Warner described the Dukes ball during the 2019 Ashes series as having a “higher pronounced seam.”

Warner also believes that the Duke’s ball is now easier to tackle than it was during the 2019 leg because it had a more pronounced seam and moved more.

He continued: “I take a step back and consider the dismissals and the two opening pairs. Batting during that stretch was challenging. I compared the 2023 Dukes ball to the 2019 Dukes ball, and it is completely different. The seam was more pronounced and higher back then. Combating it was challenging. The ball continued to move once you were inside for the entire 80 overs. Intensely challenging. There was nothing to do with my methods or anything else.

On June 16, Edgbaston in Birmingham will host the opening match of the 2023 Ashes series. The World Test Championship (WTC) final between Australia and India will take place first, though.
