Warner compares Archer to a great, heaps praise on England's attack

David Warner has heaped praise on the English bowling attack after a chaotic opening day’s play at Headingley.

The Aussie opener returned to form after a difficult start, scoring 61 from 94 deliveries in tough conditions as he combined with Marnus Labuschagne in a 111-run partnership.

However once Warner departed, the home side’s pacemen wreaked havoc, with Stuart Broad producing the ball of the series to dismiss Travis Head and Jofra Archer finishing with six wickets in just his second Test to have the Aussies all out for 179 despite a fighting 74 from Labuschagne.

Warner told media that it was “incredible Test bowling” that had brought the Aussies undone, comparing Archer to one of the greats as he said line and length will be the key for the visitors when they take the ball at the start of Day 2.
