Cricket World Cup, Australia v. Bangladesh, David Warner


David Warner became the first man to score 150 or more against six different ODI opponents while sacking the Bangladesh players at Trent Bridge.

The Australian opened 166 in 147 balls, while Australia made a huge 5-381 goals in first place in the World.

Warner arrived in the second century of the 110-ball tournament, jumping high to celebrate while continuing his prolific return from suspension.

The records then fell off when he blew up more than 150 against a tiring attack from Bangladesh when he became:

– The only player to score more than 150 against six different ODI opponents.

– The first Australian to make more than 150 ODI cricket scores. No other Australian did more than twice.

– The first player to make more than 150 points in the matches of the World Cup.

– The holder of the second place in the list of more than 150 scores in ODI cricket, behind only Rohit Sharma (seven).

– The owner of the highest ODI score by an Australian in England (formerly Aaron Finch 153 vs Sri Lanka).

– The second fastest man equal to 16 ODI centuries (110 innings), behind Hashim Amla and level with Virat Kohli.

Warner also returned to the top of the World Cup scoring rosters with 477 to 89.40, while his 166 is the tournament's highest individual score, continuing his remarkable return from the ball tampering ban.

Smith's Shocking Review

He was strong through the covers early as he punished anything too full, before being as dominant in the back foot as his turn went on.

His last 66 races resulted in only 37 balls, before he was third man in the 147th game he faced.

It marks the first time that this Warner tournament has an attack rate above 100 when it ended with 14 limits and five sixes.

His only half chance came when he cut back at 10, where the ball fell just before Sabbir Rahman.

The century is the 16th of its one-day international career, but only the second in England.

The 32-year-old is also the fourth whistlebreaker to have made two hundred in the competition.
