Veteran Australian opener David Warner was involved in a lighthearted moment during the match against Oman in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024. David Warner walked towards the Oman dressing room after his dismissal in Australia's World Cup opening match, leaving commentators and fans in laughter.

Oman skipper Aqib Ilyas opted to bowl first after winning the toss at the Kensington Oval in Barbados on Thursday, June 6. David Warner opened the batting alongside Travis Head in the first innings. Travis Head was dismissed in the third over after scoring 12 runs off 10 deliveries with the help of two boundaries.

Australia skipper Mitchell Marsh managed to score just 14 runs off 21 balls before being dismissed by Mehran Khan. All-rounder Glenn Maxwell was dismissed for a duck on the first ball by Mehran Khan. David Warner and Marcus Stoinis added a crucial 102-run partnership off just 64 balls on a challenging surface.

I'm Happy How I Finished - Marcus Stoinis

During the innings break, Marcus Stoinis expressed delight with his batting performance in the challenging conditions. Stoinis stated that David Warner showed his experience and didn't panic in the middle. The all-rounder highlighted the team's strategy to accelerate at the end to reach a good total.

"I’m happy how I finished, it was very tough. (On Warner's knock) Shows his experience at the top of the order every game, he is class apart. He spent time in the middle and didn’t panic, he did what is right for the team. We were going to accelerate regardless and if you get one or two boundaries at the start, you target that over. Nothing outright but that’s part of a game plan," Stoinis said.

Marcus Stoinis also contributed with the ball while defending the target. The right-arm medium pacer picked up three wickets for 19 runs in his three overs. Mitchell Starc, Nathan Ellis, and Adam Zampa each picked up three wickets as Oman managed to score just 125 runs for the loss of nine wickets in 20 overs.
