It is really sad though that David Warner couldn’t bring his team the top position in the semi-finals despite playing a brilliant 122 runs inning. The clever bowling of their opponent made them fall short of their dream of becoming the group stage champion. Now Australia has to face host England on Thursday at Edgbaston stadium.

David Warner couldn’t bring his team the top position in the semi-finals

The game started on the opposition of Australia as they had to bowl second in the ground where the batting first team usually gets more privilege. The bowlers did not shine throughout the day. Marcus Stoinis and Mitchell Starc both appeared in discomfort during the match. Though Starc picked up two wickets, he gave away a lot of runs. 59 to be exact in the 9 overs that he bowled.

David Warner
David Warner Played mesmerizing innings of 122 runs in 117 balls.

Australia’s injury toll mounted as Usman Khawaja suffered a hamstring strain. He scored only 18 and the captain Aaron Finch scored only 3! However, luckily they had David Warner in their gang who showed his mesmerizing performance by scoring a hefty century. It is definitely because of his ‘Baby Effect’ that he is under. Wicketkeeper Alex Carey played 69 balls and made out 85 runs from it. Only these two batsmen managed to cut through the Proteans balls. The rest of the teammates played insignificant small innings. They came so near to the victory yet they failed.

Nonetheless, this is not the end of the voyage for Aussies. They have at least one more match to play. However, in this match, Warner surpassed Adam Gilchrist’s tally of 16 by scoring his 17th ODI century. That is one least but not last thing to cheers for Australia.
