David Warner To Fire Australia To An Unassailable Ashes Lead At The WACA

Australia can secure the Ashes with victory in the Third Test at the WACA in Perth this week and we are backing David Warner to propel them to an unassailable 3-0 lead over England...

  • Australia have won 12 of their past 20 Tests at the WACA
  • England haven't won a Test at the WACA since 1978
  • David Warner has scored 803 runs at an average of 89.22 in Perth Tests

The Story So Far

Australia are 2-0 up following their wins in Brisbane and Adelaide, where Joe Root's 'Nasser Hussain-esque' decision to bowl first will no doubt go down in the annuls of Ashes legend. Root was left to rue his decision as Australia secured what was ultimately a comfortable win and it is no surprise to see that the hosts are 8/15 favourites in Perth.

The Aussies tend to be strong at the WACA, where the fast and bouncy nature of the pitch suits their players, and they have won 12 of their past 20 Tests at the ground (drawn three, lost five).

England would do well to speak to South Africa about how to play in Perth as the Proteas have won their past three at the WACA, while England haven't won at this venue since 1978.

It is perhaps a surprise that England aren't bigger than 7/2, while the draw is available at 4/1 (Betfred).
Match Odds:

Warner To Star

Stuart Broad will be a key man for England as his height ensures he should enjoy the extra bounce that the WACA offers and he was top England bowler in the first innings of their Test there in 2013. He has bowled better than his return of five wickets in this series so far and he is 3/1 to be top England bowler (Coral).

Broad will have his work cut out when coming up against David Warner, who has quietly gone about his batting in the series, scoring 174 runs at an average of 58. The Australian opener has yet to make a big score but Perth could be where he explodes into life as he loves this ground.

Warner has scored 803 runs at an average of 89.22 in five previous Tests at the WACA, scoring three hundreds, and he is 3/1 to be top Australia batsman (Bet 365). That is a stand-out bet as Warner's past five first-innings scores in Perth Tests read: 180, 13, 60, 253, 97.

Warner will be the difference with the bat and Mitchell Starc could well prove to be the main man with the ball. Starc has taken 14 wickets in the series so far and he can take on the Mitchell Johnson role of 'chief destroyer' at the WACA, where Starc is 11/5 to be top Australian bowler after taking 21 wickets in four previous Tests at this ground.
