Aussie Warner looks in prime form

Opener can continue golden run

David Warner has had plenty to smile about recently

First ODI
BT Sport 3, 3.20am Friday

Australia's scoring rate in their final innings of the Test series against Pakistan was a rollicking 7.53 runs per over so the transition to 50-over cricket is unlikely to trouble the Aussies.

They are just 1-7 to win the one-day series and 9-4 for a 5-0 whitewash against a Pakistan side missing wicketkeeper-batsman Sarfraz Ahmed and towering paceman Mohammad Irfan, both of whom have returned home for family reasons.

Australia have freshened up their batting line-up, omitting Aaron Finch and George Bailey and bringing in Big Bash star Chris Lynn, but a familiar figure could haunt Pakistan in the opening game in Brisbane.

David Warner’s last three innings of the Test series were 144, 113 and 55 – all scored at better than a run a ball – while he lit up December’s one-dayers against New Zealand with knocks of 119 and 156 (out of 264-8).

The opener’s golden run could continue at the Gabba, where his four ODI innings include 163 against Sri Lanka in 2012.

Recommendation
D Warner top Australia runscorer
2pts 11-4 general
