David Warner’s horrific form with the bat in England has continued, but Stuart Broad is no longer his relentless tormentor.

During Sunday night’s second ODI at Manchester, Australia was set a target of 232 after a stellar bowling performance in the first innings.

The Aussies were 0/9 in the fourth over when England paceman Jofra Archer found the edge of David Warner’s bat, the opening batsman lazily swatting at a length delivery outside off. The 33-year-old returned to the sheds for six, his fourth single-figures score in five innings.

Archer has undeniably unearthed his newest bunny — the paceman has dismissed Warner seven times in 61 balls across all three formats since last year’s Cricket World Cup.

Broad embarrassed Warner throughout last year’s Ashes series, removing the destructive batsman seven times in ten innings. Now another English quick has emerged to terrorise the hapless Warner.

Archer has now dismissed Warner in each of his four innings throughout the ongoing short-format tour, and one match remains.

Another superb bowling performance from Josh Hazlewood and Adam Zampa restricted England to 9/231 at Old Trafford.

Hazlewood finished with the economic figures of 1/27 from 10 overs, while Zampa — after taking four wickets in the first ODI — snared three key scalps, including experienced duo Joe Root and Eoin Morgan.

Earlier, powerhouse batsman Jason Roy was superbly run out by Stoinis, who hit the stumps after a quick-fire one-armed grab.

England looked poised to register a measly total before Tom Curran and Adil Rashid combined to resurrect the innings with a critical 76-run ninth-wicket partnership.

Although the hosts removed Warner and No. 3 Marcus Stoinis during the power play, Australian skipper Aaron Finch and stalwart Marnus Labuschagne set about completing the simple run chase.
