David Warner Hits his Slowest ODI Fifty

David Warner Slowest ODI Fifty: David Warner played an uncharacteristic inning against India in the 14th match of the World Cup on Sunday. The Australian batsman faced as many 84 deliveries to score 56 runs before getting caught at deep midwicket by Bhuvneshwar Kumar off Yuzvendra Chahal. Out of 84 deliveries he faced, the Southpaw could only score just five boundaries in his innings.

Right from the start of his innings, runs were hard to come by from Warner’s bat. In addition to that, a wrong call by Warner while running between the wickets also affected skipper Aaron Finch’s wicket in the thirteenth over of the innings which perhaps might prove to be the turning point in the match.

Warner’s wicket perhaps came at a wrong time, as he left Smith and Khawaja with a plethora of runs to be made to win the match on Sunday.

Of Late, the Southpaw has been seen playing in an uncharacteristic fashion. We saw glimpses in the recently concluded Indian Premier League as well, where the left-hander had looked to anchor the innings rather than playing in his usual fashion.

In a game against Hyderabad, Warner hit his slowest IPL fifty, taking as many as 49 deliveries to reach the landmark. Hyderabad could only manage to score 150 in 20 overs, eventually losing it by 6 wickets.

Batting first, India notched a daunting 352 runs on the board against Australia. Shikhar Dhawan scored his sixth century in the World Cups as he notched up as many as 117 runs off 109 deliveries. India’s skipper Virat Kohli too played a wonderful 77-ball 82 run innings, even as Hardik Pandya and Rohit Sharma also made substantial contributions with 48 and 57 respectively.

Australia, in reply, has lost three wickets including both the openers. Steve Smith is standing firmly on 59 off 63 even as Australia need 151 runs in 80 balls to win the match.
