Australian opener David Warner has said that James Anderson’s exit for England in the opening round of the Ashes Test at The Gabba, starting on Wednesday, could cost the team dearly. He believes that the veteran pacer has always had good line, length and control.
“Jimmy being out is a big deal for us,” Warner said on SEN 1170 Breakfast before the start of the Test. Warner, however, felt that Chris Woakes in place of Anderson would also be a potential threat to the Australian batsmen.
‘Chris Woakes doesn’t have wickets on the board, but he is a bowler. He always hits those lines and lengths that can get wickets. On the first day of the Test, Australia captain Pat Cummins took five wickets to bowl England out for 147 in 50.1 overs.
England kept James Anderson out, David Warner said – the decision will be expensive, will have to pay a big price
