Warner capped off the early stages of his return in style on Wednesday (Thursday NZ time), hitting his first century for Australia since Boxing Day 2017 in their 41-run win over Pakistan at Taunton.

A struggling middle order and a lack of support for the main pace duo of Mitchell Starc and Pat Cummins have emerged as Australia's main concerns in the early days of the World Cup, but the team are now second in the overall standings. Later in the fifth ball of 38th over Shaheen Afridi got his biggest wicket of the match as he dismissed David Warner after a commendable inning of 107 runs off 111 balls. What was more heartening to see was his usual celebrations which he does after getting to the three-figure mark.

Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir is confident that his team can beat India on Sunday.

"I know that run-out with Finchy knocked him around a bit".

"I feel awesome", the youthful fan told the ICC Digital Insider Zainab Abbas after the match. And that's what happened. This was also Warner's second World Cup hundred after he made 178 runs off 133 balls against Afghanistan in Perth in 2015. We implemented our plans partly, but not wholly and made more mistakes and that made the difference in the end.

In the next game against the West Indies, Warner didn't manage to stay long at the crease and got out for mere 3.

Warner stated that the wicket had something for the bowlers and the rotating strike was very hard for him and the conditions like these need Test match style batting.

"I was always coming back to global cricket if selected", Warner said.

Warner is now second in the World Cup run-getter's list with 255 runs at an average of 85.

The risky opener has made a successful comeback alongside Steve Smith after serving a one-year ban for ball-tampering. "She really nailed that into me." he added.

The boy said they were just standing in the stands waving the Australian flag when Warner came over and handed him the award. The boys are on fire here. "So, look, I'm pumped". The thing that kept me going was my wife and two young kids.

His return to global duty, though, had not been smooth-sailing, and Warner said that his wife Candice had been his "rock" and his driving force. "She's unbelievable. She's determined, disciplined, selfless", said an emotional Warner to reporters at a press conference after the match.

"I hold a lot of credit to her".
