As I type this, David Warner has just scored his maiden ODI century and what a time for it to come!
The team has needed consistency from him and although he's had a battle for it, what a time to deliver your highest ODI score! The first final of three against Sri Lanka.
The century came after an opening stand of 136 runs with Matt Wade (64) who is starting to find his way with batting. His keeping has been outstanding! Matt's been shuffled between top and lower order duties which doesn't help for focus as such but definitely gives him early experience. Going to brace myself as this innings of Pitbull's could get huge, especially with Dan Christian batting with him.
On the note of Dan Christian, in case you missed his hat-trick against Sri Lanka on Friday at the MCG, here it is! It is our first ODI hat-trick since Brett Lee took his 2003 World Cup hat-trick against Kenya in brutal style. Binga also took a hat-trick in the 2007 ICC World T20 against Bangladesh.
Well done DC, special achievement mate.
