David Warner rediscovers form with unbeaten half-century against Namibia ahead of T20 World Cup

Chasing 120, Warner played a swashbuckling innings to ensure Australia reached the target within 10 overs and with 7 wickets to spare.

Champions have a way of rising from the ashes and delivering on the biggest stages when required. Australia have no dearth of cricketing talent in their country. However, when they chose to stick with David Warner in their T20 World Cup squad, a lot of questions were raised. Warner was coming on the back of a torrid IPL 2024 where he struggled quite a lot. But it seems like the baggy green has an unexplained effect on Aussie cricketers. Warner on Wednesday returned to form with a bang, smashing an unbeaten 21-ball 54 in his team’s first warm-up game against Namibia.

Chasing 120, Warner played a swashbuckling innings to ensure Australia reached the target within 10 overs and with 7 wickets to spare.

No joy in IPL

However, it has been a tough ride for Warner in the last few months. Warner was out of form in IPL 2024, with criticisms galore all around. The opening batter only scored 168 runs in 8 matches for the Delhi Capitals, and it was not enough as DC crashed out of the playoff berth.

He completed his 50 with the help of 6 boundaries and 3 over-boundaries. Australia’s opponents watching on must be worried seeing Warner in this form. After all, it’s known to all what Warner is capable of doing on his day.
