Aussie David Warner ‘feels the pain’ of Devon Conway after New Zealand opener dismissed by England’s Stuart Broad in Lord’s Test | Cricket News

MELBOURNE: After New Zealand opener Devon Conway fell to England‘s pacer Stuart Broad on day one of the first Test at Lord’s, Australian opener David Warner, who has been dismissed by the bowler numerous times, posted a message on social media expressing his sympathy for the Kiwi batter.
Conway was dismissed for just three runs after being caught by Jonny Bairstow at the slips off a Broad delivery.
“Devon Conway I feel your pain,” posted the Aussie opener on Instagram.

Notably, the great Aussie opener has been at receiving end of Broad’s brutal pace many times. During the 2019 edition of the Ashes, Broad had dismissed Warner seven times out of his ten innings. In two of his dismissals, Warner was caught by Bairstow as well.
Warner’s run in that series was horrific, as he could score only 95 runs in 10 innings. This also included a solitary half-century, 61 in the third Test.
The day one of the Lord’s Test was dominated by bowlers.

Opting to bat first, the Kiwis were bundled out for just 132. Only all-rounder Colin de Grandhomme (42*) and Tim Southee (26) could offer some resistance as debutant Matthew Potts (4/13) and James Anderson (4/66) shook the NZ batting lineup with their pace.
In reply, England limped their way to 116/7 at stumps. Wicketkeeper-batter Ben Foakes (6*) and Stuart Broad (4*) will resume the proceedings for their side on day two.
