Brad Hogg says “Someone like Chris Woakes can bowl wide” in T20 World Cup 2021. He develops David Warner’s potential weakness. Which the England bowlers could exploit. He showed shades of his old self with a sublime fifty during the Aussies’ win over Sri Lanka. Also, Hogg noted that at the start of the innings. Warner tends to put his back leg behind his front leg. While this allows him to play more expansively on the leg side. It causes him trouble to score on the off-side. As a result, David Warner has to make extra effort to reach. In the ball due to the shift of his body weight onto his right.
“His initial trigger movement puts his back leg right behind his front leg. This allows him to get more room to play on the leg side but also transfers the body weight. Someone like Chris Woakes can bowl wide, and get an edge while Warner tries to play away from his body,” Brad Hogg said.
Warner had been dismissed by Chris Woakes. Jos Buttler has the advantage in the 2019 World Cup semi-finals. While the delivery was not wide, it did have some length to it. With the new ball, Woakes will have to change his strategy. In the UAE, the pitches don’t have much bounce, which is a disadvantage for Warner.
Moreover, Hogg notes that as the innings progresses. Also, Warner settles at the crease, the subtle trigger movement stops. And then Hogg feels there is no point bowling wide to the Aussie and England. They could go to Tymal Mills who could bowl fast bouncers at him.
“As the innings progresses his trigger movement stops. And then you can tell he’s confident at the crease. In that case, someone like a Tymal Mills, who has a little extra pace can deliver a bouncer,” Brad Hogg said.
