Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
David Warner, Australia’s flamboyant cricketer, found himself out of the national team for one good year after admitting to tamper the ball. Getting ridiculed in the cricketing circles, the audacious opening batsman spent a troublesome time before making a comeback in the national team.
However, it’d be hard to imagine that the 32-year old remained out of practice for such a long period. While Warner started his World Cup with a sluggish approach but he got better with every game, thus maintaining a consistent show.
In the game against arch-rivals England, the belligerent striker scored his fifth 50 plus score of the tournament to become the first batsman to amass 500 runs in the ongoing mega-event. The New South Wales born portrayed his class by producing a strong opening partnership with Aaron Finch which allowed Australia to post a competitive total.
The game became even more memorable as Australia registered a strong bowling performance to win the contest by 64 runs. Moreover, Warner looks hungry for more as he is positive about continuing his elite batting outings in the forthcoming games of the championship.
