Warner becomes fastest Australian batsman to 5000 ODI runs

Ever since his reintegration into the national team of Australia, opening batsman David Warner has refused to look back. Without any doubt, he is one of the finest batters of the modern day cricket. Particularly, when it comes to white-ball cricket, Warner enjoys a lot of fame which isn’t getting harmed by his performances in the ongoing ODI series against India.

The game at Wankhede saw a thumping batting outing from Warner as he bagged the record of being the fastest Australian batsman to record 5000 ODI runs, doing it in his 115th ODI innings. Moreover, he also became the fourth fastest batsman of the cricketing world to achieve this feat.

Getting India bundled out for 255, Australia was always ahead in the game. However, iconic batting shows from Warner and Finch made it a special victory. The 33-year old cricketer recorded his 18th ODI century by mustering an unbeaten innings of 128 runs, which saw him consuming only 112 balls to produce 17 fours and 3 sixes. With this batting show, it was only natural to see Warner flying away with the player of the match award.
