In the recently concluded Ashes, David Warner reached to double figures just twice in 10 innings and only scored 95 runs, finishing with an average of 9.5.
It’s the fewest amount of runs any opener in history has scored after batting at least 10 times in a series, while Warner also became the first ever opener to record eight single-digit scores in the one Test series.
Stuart Broad dismissed Warner seven times, regularly troubling him with his angle in from around the wicket and ability to seam the ball both ways to challenge both the inside and outside edges of the southpaw’s bat.
But Warner didn’t appear to be wallowing in his shortcomings upon his return to Sydney Airport on Wednesday, where he was met by his wife, Candice.
The 32-year-old looked cheerful despite pushing a trolley overloaded with five sports bags, before the pair shared a passionate reunion kiss.
He was wearing his blue Cricket Australia team jersey, while Candice looked stylish in jeans and a coat.
The 34-year-old slung a Louis Vuitton handbag over her warm coat as she greeted her husband at the arrivals terminal.
Meanwhile, former Australian pacer Mitchell Johnson took a hilarious dig at David for sharing a kiss with wife Candice after the Ashes shocker. In his Instagram story, Johnson wrote: “How dare you be happy Davey smoochie”
