Twitter reactions on David Warner’s first century post ban: Twitter was elated at watching the Australia opener’s 15 ODI century.
During the 17th match of the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 between Australia and Pakistan at Taunton, Australia opening batsman David Warner registered his 15th ODI century to provide Australia will a magnificent start.
Opening the batting with captain Aaron Finch, the duo shared a 146-run opening stand. Contrary to how he played in the previous matches of the tournament, Warner played with a much positive approach today.
Despite the conditions favouring the fast bowlers, the southpaw attacked them at will. Playing throughout with a strike of nearly 100, Warner looked in a mode which he is usually known for.
While Australia had scored 56/0 in the first powerplay, Warner had contributed 27* (21) to register an affirmative beginning. On the last ball of the 22nd over, Warner hit Pakistan fast bowler Hasan Ali for a four through backward point to complete his half-century.
With Finch (82) getting out on the next delivery, Warner took the onus on himself and went on to convert his half-century into a century. The same was also important for Australia after Steve Smith (10) and Glenn Maxwell (20) also departed cheaply.
On the first delivery of the 36th over, Warner edged a Shaheen Shah Afridi delivery for a four to reach the three-figure mark. He celebrated the milestone with his signatory celebration. Before getting out to the same bowler in the 38th over, Warner ended up scoring 107 (111) with the help of 11 fours and a six.
