Australia opener David Warner may have avoided the ignominy of recording four straight ducks in the ongoing Ashes, but once again failed to reach double digit after being dismissed by Jofra Archer for five.

Warner, who averages a meagre 9.33 this series, now has the dubious distinction of becoming the first opener in a Test series to be out for eight single digit scores.

His five at The Oval follows a pair of ducks at Old Trafford, another duck and a 61 at Headingley, a three and five at Lord's, and a two and an eight at Edgbaston.

England seamer Stuart Broad has had the wood on Warner, getting the southpaw out six times. Australia head-coach Justin Langer had backed Warner to come good in the final Test.

"Davey hasn't had a great series, there's no secrets about that. But he's also a world class player. I've said throughout the whole series if Davey has one good innings it will help us win the Ashes," he had said.

"He probably hasn't been through this lean run before, so it's going to be a good test of his character and we know what a great player he is. 

"He's had a huge World Cup, he had a huge IPL albeit with a white ball. He's a world class player, he's a match winner. He's been brilliant around the group since he's been back."
