There was some uncertainty whether Stuart Broad vs David Warner would resume at Edgbaston but Broad won selection ahead of Mark Wood. It did not take long for him to add to his long list of success against Australia's opener - and he did it twice again during the ongoing third Test*. Here's how ESPNcricinfo has charted a head-to-head that began back in 2013

2013

Durham, 1st innings
3.6 143.1 kph, oh he's gone! This one was right on target, he pitched it straight on the stumps on length, it seamed back in and Warner's bat came down late enough for the ball to hit the top of off stump. Broad has got the early breakthrough

2013-14

Brisbane, 1st innings
30.3 135.1 kph, oh, what's he done! Warner's slapped a short ball straight to cover. It wasn't a great delivery, short of a length outside off. Warner driving lazily off the back foot and it was a simple catch.
Brisbane, 2nd innings
58.4 134.1 kph, plays away from his body, thin edge and gone! A crumb of comfort for England, Broad again the catalyst with his eighth wicket in the match. Having just flayed a six down the ground, this was a slightly neither-nor way to go, just dangled the bat out. But the damage, you feel, is done
Adelaide, 1st innings
7.6 133.6 kph, got him! Poor stroke, clipped straight to point. Just short of a length and Warner has picked out Carberry square on the off side. He lives and dies by the sword and in trying to be uber-aggressive again, Warner pops up an easy catch with a flicked back-foot drive. The delivery might have just stopped in the wicket a little, and it actually just nipped away a touch, it certainly didn't come on as Warner was hoping. Important strike for England after leaking a few runs early doors
Sydney, 1st innings
5.5 136.1 kph, got 'im! Broad gets rewarded for a full length. Holds its line on Warner whose footworks lets him down this time, and Broad zips it past the outside edge to take off stump. Lovely delivery

2019

Edgbaston, 1st innings
3.5 NOW THAT'S OUT!! Full and fast, pinned in front of middle and leg! Warner is gone, no attempt even to review - Broad has burst through in the fourth over of the morning, and Edgbaston is all over this! "Cheerio, cheerio!" they crow, as Warner grits his teeth and heads for the dressing rooms. But hang on, because Hawk-Eye now has its say: and the ball was missing leg!! So a Tale of Two Missed Reviews ends with Warner back in the hutch for spit
Edgbaston, 2nd innings
2.6 huge appeal from Bairstow and the slips! Broad isn't so sure, but the cordon is adamant there was a noise as Warner flirted outside off! It's gone to a review and the crowd like what they've seen already! Almost off the back of the bat as Warner tried to leave that uncomfortable kicking back-of-a-length, and that's 450 wickets for Broad, and a massive one at that!
Lord's, 1st innings
4.2 bowled 'im, shaves the leg bail! Big nip-backer from round the wicket and Warner goes cheaply again! Broad the man to get him for the third time in a row this series, slightly rickety defensive shot but that was a sweet cherry - and England have their opening
Headingley, 2nd innings
1.2 big appeal... given! Wilson looked like he shook his head, and then stuck the finger up - utterly bizarre - and Warner sends it upstairs... impact umpire's call, and smashing into leg stump on with the angle! Warner's struggles against Broad continue! Wide on the crease again from Broad - you know the drill now when he's bowling to Warner - and moved in off the seam to thwack him on the pad
Old Trafford, 1st innings
0.4 caught behind! Five times for Broad! Warner trying to leave made his decision to late! Got a little outside edge before withdrawing the bat. Easy catch for Bairstow! It was a good length but way wide of off. It didn't shape away much. The tightness of the previous leave maybe caused doubt for Warner and he was too late to withdraw the bat!
Old Trafford, 2nd innings
0.6 given lbw! Broad's done it again! A straighter delivery, good length, spears into the pads and Warner is trapped deep in the crease. A pair for Warner, his first in Tests and three ducks in a row
The Oval, 2nd innings
6.4 gone! Do not adjust your monitors, Stuart Broad has got David Warner again! Again, you know the drill. Round the wicket, on a length, Warner has a nibble at it, and edges it to slip where Burns takes a good catch. Seven times in the series!

2021-22

Sydney, 2nd innings
20.6 edged, gone! Broad gets Warner. A fraction fuller from Broad, and this is the sort of delivery that Warner struggled so much with back in 2019. Angling in from wide on the crease, then nipping away off the seam from a fuller length to take the outside edge. Crawley gobbles up the chance at second slip and England have the breakthrough. That's the 13th time Broad has dismissed Warner in Tests. Possibly wide enough to leave alone but Warner has struggled to judge the line with that exaggerated angle
Hobart, 2nd innings
0.3 brilliant catch at point! Warner goes for a pair. Short outside off stump, Warner goes for a square drive and Pope dives full length to his right. Warner's second pair in Tests after Old Trafford 2019

2023

Edgbaston, 1st innings
10.1 chopped on! Broad gets Warner again. Edgbaston erupts! Wide tempter, not quite a half volley, Warner throws his hands at a full blooded drive with no footwork and drags a thick inside edge back onto the stumps. Warner throws his head back in disbelief.
Headingley, 1st innings
0.5 edged and taken at second slip! Broad gets Warner again! Sweet 16. Good length, fifth stump line, no need to play, he pushes at it firmly, gets a thick edge and it flies rib high to Crawley's left and he opens his body nicely to pouch it. Crowd erupts.
Headingley, 2nd innings
2.2 and of course it is Broad who dismisses Warner. Like clockwork. Warner with a wry smile as he makes his way back. Length ball angling into Warner, the batter tries to fend it low, but the ball takes an edge and Crawley dives at slip to gobble it up. That's No. 17 for Broad in this battle against Warner
