London: England fast bowler Stuart Broad believes that it would be interesting to see if David Warner ever writes a book on the 2018 ball tempering controversy. Due to the same scandal, he will never be able to captain the national team.
Broad taunts Warner
Broad agreed with Cameron Bancroft, who faced a 9-month ban in that case, saying that the wrongdoing was known to people other than the three cricketers who faced the ban. Broad told ESPN Cricinfo, ‘I have seen some statements by David Warner’s agent. It will be interesting to write a book after retiring from cricket.
Ball tempering controversy a difficult period
Broad said, ‘There is no doubt that it was a very difficult period for these three players. It should not be discussed before the Ashes begin in November-December, but if the Barmy Army (supporters of England) are allowed to enter the stadium, then they will definitely mention it.
Warner’s manager raised questions on Cricket Australia
Warner’s manager James Erskine condemned Cricket Australia’s attitude during the investigation of the case against Warner, Bancroft and Steve Smith. Broad said that a bowler is very sensitive to the condition of the ball and everyone has to take care of it.
Broad gave the example of Anderson
Broad said, “I have never bowled with Australian bowlers, but in the England Test team, if I miss the seam by more than four millimeters, James Anderson will say how the ball was marked.” Because you missed the seam. Now make the ball seam. Broad said, ‘Getting the reverse swing to the red ball depends on many aspects. If you throw the throw from the boundary line to the grass, the ball will soften and reverse swing will not be found. The same will happen on touching the ball with a wet hand.
