Pat Cummins was very ecstatic about getting this victory. He praises the performance of Ashton Agar. While Dawid Malan clinched the Player of the Match award despite losing the game. He expresses that it was tough to miss the World Cup but he was here in One Day International to prove that he is well-fit to compete.
Warner and Head combined for 147 in 19.4 overs to finish the job for the Australian side crushing the rusty English side. Despite the defeat, team England still made a competitive 9-287 with the help of Dawid Malan’s 134 from 128 balls. This is Warner’s redemption after producing a lacking output in the T20 World Cup, he made sure to make his presence felt and be in his best form.
“I know I’m seeing the ball well, I’m in great positions and it was just one of those things. After that first game (against New Zealand) how I was dismissed, I said to myself actually it’s going to be one of those tournaments,” Warner said in the T20 World Cup.
His poor performance in the first game of the T20 against New Zealand really affected his whole performance for Australia that caused them to lose the T20 to England, which they last claimed way back in Dubai 2021.
“I don’t know why but that’s the game of cricket, it can go either way. You get some lucky, you don’t get some luck. We did our best. And then obviously with this series we’ve got two games to go.”
Warner overperformed in the first game of ODI, as he and Head recorded the highest one-day partnership for any wicket – 284 opening the field in Adelaide against Pakistan five years ago.
“We are both quite similar in the way we take the game one,” Warner said. “With Trav and myself if it’s full, we’ll still play through the line. We like to go aerial, that’s the way that we play. Anything short, we try and punch, pull or go with it. That’s our style of play.”
On the other hand, Malan was still disappointed at not playing with England back in T20 due to injury and admitted that he cried after being ruled out despite passing the fitness test.
“There were a few tears shed that night but that’s in the past. We’ve won the World Cup. That’s all that matters,” Malan told reporters.
