Australia’s opening batter, David Warner, rediscovered his form with a match-winning knock of 65 off 42 balls as Australia defeated Sri Lanka by 7 wickets in their second match of the Super 12s stage in the 2021 T20 World Cup.
Warner had been in a terrible run of form throughout the year, and his run in the Indian Premier League (IPL) had put his place in the Australian side at risk. Warner’s comeback to form is a good sign for Australia as they look to qualify for the semi-finals of the mega event.
Warner was in a good mood after guiding Australia to their second consecutive win. Warner took a page out of Cristiano Ronaldo’s books in the post-match press conference and removed the Coca-Cola bottles from the table. However, he eventually had to put them back as Coca-Cola is one of the main sponsors for the event. During the ordeal, he remarked, “If it is good enough for Cristiano, it is good enough for me.”
