  • David Warner managed to get double digit scores just 2 times in the series

When Stuart Broad bowls to David Warner, you know what happens next!

David Warner's horror show with the bat came to an end as he finished the last innings of the ongoing Ashes series in a similar fashion. To one's surprise, Warner was dismissed by pacer Stuart Broad in the second innings of the fifth Test at the Oval as the Australian opener ended his Ashes series with dreadful average of just 9.5.

Broad wreaked havoc with his around-the-wicket line and removed Warner for 7th time across his 10 innings to set a new Test record.

On only five other occasions has a bowler dismissed a player seven times in a single series. The last time such one sided contest between a bowler and a batsman happened was in the previous Ashes series where Australia spin bowler Nathan Lyon haunted Moeen Ali.

Making a comeback into Test series after serving the one-year ban for his involvement in the ball-tampering scandal, Warner managed to get just 95 runs in the 5 Tests. After his 61-run knock in the first innings of the 3rd Test, the 11 runs that he scored in the final innings at the Oval on Sunday was his second highest score. Warner also has 3 consecutive ducks in the series.
