Australia Cricket Team opener David Warner has been in scintillating form right from the start of the ICC World Cup 2019. He kept up his excellent form with another 150+ knock against Bangladesh at Trent Bridge in Nottingham. And in the process, Warner leapfrogged West Indies batsman Chris Gayle and India legend Sachin Tendulkar in the list of most 150+ scores in ODI cricket.

Aaron Finch and David Warner got the Aussies off to a flying start after winning the toss. The right-hand-left-hand combination made the life of Bangladeshi bowlers hard rotating the strike while the boundaries kept coming. Both Warner and Finch reached individual half-centuries before Soumya Sarkar provided the breakthrough removing Finch.

Usman Khawaja then joined David Warner in the middle, and they marched towards a massive target. They scored runs at will as Mashrafe Mortaza tried all his options in search for a wicket. Warner, in particular, was spectacular as he brought his second century of this World Cup and the 16th ODI century. Soon after, Khawaja also completed his half-century as Australia looked in line for a target close to the 400-run mark. Warner pressed the peddle soon after reaching the three-figure mark to make it counting crossing 150 runs in style before Sarkar provided the much-needed breakthrough after a well-made 166 runs.

With this, David Warner leapfrogged Chris Gayle in the list of most 150+ scores in ODIs. The Australia Cricket is currently in the second spot with six 150+ knocks, one short of India’s Rohit Sharma. Gayle; meanwhile, holds the third place alongside Sachin Tendulkar with five 150+ scores. And the World Cup still in its midway, we are up for some more shuffling in the list of most 150+ runs in ODIs.
