David Warner brutally sledged by Barmy Army in ‘cheats’ on altered jersey
Morning shows the day – so does it show for David Warner that the time in England will not be easy for the Aussie star.
On his return eclipsing the year-long ban following Sandpaper Gate, the former Aussie Vice-captain received harsh trolling from Barmy Army – the famous English fan base.
It seems like the Barmy Army took their first crack at Warner photoshopping the pre-tournament shoot out image wearing the new Australian jersey for the World Cup.
In the original image, David Warner is pointing at the word ‘Australia’ on his green and gold shirt; in the altered image, he’s instead pointing at the word ‘cheats’.
In the same image, the Barmy Army Photo-shopped Nyon and Starc holding rolls of sandpaper.
“The Australia squad look ready for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019!” the post read.
Australia coach Justin Langer, in his response to the vicious social media jerk, said his team is ready for anything the Barmy Army has to throw at them.
Former captain Mark Taylor expressed to Channel Nine saying, “You know what it’s like when you go to England … it will be the English media and they’ll be all over us.”
32-year old David Warner had a hugely successful season for the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League mounting 692 runs at an average of 69.2 and strike-rate of 143.86.
