David Warner and Aaron Finch have been at the helm of Australia’s resurgence in limited overs cricket. The two opening batsmen have looked far from being in any trouble in this World Cup thus far and look a class apart from the rest of the batters.
Finding unwavering consistency with the bat and launching an expansive stroke play from the get-go, Finch and Warner have now made the record for most number of 50+ opening partnerships in a World Cup. The right-hand/left-hand combination has been involved in five consecutive half-century standings, failing only on one occasion against West Indies in this tournament.
Bringing their vast cricketing experience to the fore, Finch and Warner have been instrumental for leading the Australian batting lineup from the top particularly given the fragility of their middle order.
