Australian openers, David Warner and Aaron Finch, stitched together an unbroken 258-run stand that made their side lead the series by 1-0. It was indeed surprising to see the bowling attack of the Indian cricket team going wicketless.
Asked to bat first, team India put up a target of 255 runs for the Australians to chase, which they managed to score and that too in just 38 overs without losing a single wicket. David Warner’s 128 runs and Aaron Finch’s 110 runs helped their side win the match.
However, this isn’t the first time that David Warner and Aaron Finch’s batting duo made everyone sit on the edge of their seats and amassed runs for their teams. They are one of the best opening duos in the world right now.
Recently, after the first ODI match, David Warner was asked if he and Aaron Finch will open the series for their side in World Cup 2023, which will be hosted by India.
Talking about their performance, David Warner said:
“We complement each other on the field, and we’re great mates off the field as well. We know each other’s games and personalities well. We have honest conversations. If we’re playing shots that we wouldn’t, we reassure each other about that,”
Replying to whether he will be opening series with Aaron Finch in 2023’s World Cup, he gave a hilarious reply, he said:
“We’ll speak to our wives first,”
“We’ll both be 36 or 37. I’ve got three kids, and I hope that’s the last one. We’ll take one step at a time. We’ll look to the next game in Rajkot. We actually spoke about this in the team meeting, not looking too far ahead,”
