Sydney Thunder won their maiden match against the Melbourne Stars in the newly formed Big Bash League, thanks to David Warner who marked his return to domestic T20 cricket carrying on where he left off in his previous encounters – scoring an unbeaten hundred.
Warner’s previous domestic outing was for the now disbanded NSW Blues in the Champions League T20 semi-final against Royal Challengers Bangalore. In that game he scored 123 not out from 68 balls with 6 fours and 11 sixes.
In the game before against the Chennai Super King, he made 135 not out in 69 balls with 11 fours and 8 sixes.
Tonight marked his first domestic outing since the semi-final loss to RCB. And against the Melbourne Stars at the MCG featuring the great Shane Warne, David Warner stole the show with his 102 not out in 51 balls featuring 6 fours and 6 sixes.
In scoring his latest hundred, he made it three hundreds on the trot in domestic T20 cricket. Many considered his back to back hundreds in the CLT20 to be an impressive feat, however Dave Warner doesn’t believe in limits raising the bar to three hundreds on the trot.
Warner is also on another streak where he has now made back to back hundreds in his last two matches carrying on his 123 not out against NZ last week.
Can David Warner carry on this hot streak to an unheard of forth hundred on the trot? It may happen in the IPL as Warner won’t play another game for the Sydney Thunder if he is as expected retained for the Boxing Day Test.
