The highly anticipated third Test of the Ashes 2023 series commenced at Headingley, Leeds on Thursday, July 6. England captain Joe Root won the toss and elected to bowl first on a pitch that offered assistance to the seamers with its greenish tinge. The crowd eagerly awaited the encounter between Stuart Broad and David Warner, and they didn’t have to wait long as the battle unfolded in the very first over of the game.

Stuart Broad dismissed David Warner again

Australian opener David Warner made a strong start by elegantly playing an “on drive” that beat the fielder at mid-on and raced away for a boundary, getting his team off the mark. However, the joy was short-lived as Warner edged the fifth ball of the over straight to Zak Crawley at second slip, falling victim to Stuart Broad for the 16th time in Test cricket.


Broad had already proven his dominance over Warner in the first Test, where he forced the Australian batsman to chop one back onto his stumps in the first innings. This continues a trend from the 2019 Ashes series, where Broad dismissed Warner seven times out of ten innings. As a result, Warner has only managed to score 95 runs in ten innings against Broad, averaging a mere 9.5.

With this dismissal, Warner now joins the esteemed company of England great Graham Gooch, who was also dismissed 16 times by the legendary West Indies seamer Malcolm Marshall in his Test career.

The top spot on the list of most dismissals against a particular bowler in Tests is occupied by former England batter Michael Atherton, who was dismissed 19 times by Glenn McGrath. Atherton also appears in the third position twice, having been dismissed 17 times each by Sir Curtly Ambrose and Courtney Walsh.
