Broad trolls Warner after latter wins Allan Border medal
David Warner received Australian cricket’s highest individual honour, Allan Border medal at Australian Cricket Award ceremony. The honourable award is given to the Australian cricketer who scored most runs in a calendar year. David Warner beat Steve Smith and Pat Cummins to bag the third Allan Border medal.
The elegant southpaw was moved to tears and gave an emotional speech while receiving the coveted award. He also felt disappointed for playing against the spirit of cricket where he was involved in ball-tampering saga against South Africa in 2018. After completing his one-year ban from international cricket, the comeback was far from impressive.
The left-handed batsman Warner failed to score runs in the Ashes series but he showcased his mettle in white-ball cricket and essayed the most number of runs in the last season of IPL. He also ended up as the second-highest run-scorer in the ICC World Cup tournament held in England last year.
Meanwhile, veteran England pace spearhead Stuart Broad took a dig at David Warner after the Australia opener won the Allan Border medal.
England fast bowler Stuart Broad took to his official Twitter handle and posted a cheeky remark on England Cricket Board’s old tweet. In the tweet, the ECB had posted a video clip of Broad dismissing Warner in the last Ashes series.
Warner and Broad went one on one against each other but the Broad got the better of him on seven occasions. Broad who ruffled Warner’s feathers in the Ashes series chipped in with a remark on ECB’s old post that reads: “Why is this suddenly getting retweeted more today?! 🏏,” wrote Stuart Broad.
