A tale of redemption: Warner century leads charge against Pakistan

A tale of redemption: Warner century leads charge against Pakistan Australia may have lost the toss but it wasn't a major issue as they turned up the heat in their World Cup clash at the County Ground in Taunton, England.

David Warner hit an unbeaten half- century on his official return to international cricket on Saturday as Australia romped to victory by seven wickets Bangladesh worry about lack of spin at World Cup .

In cricket, a player is said to have completed a century when he scores 100 or more runs in a single innings. The Cricket World Cup is the international championship of One Day International (ODI) cricket.

David Warner's run-scoring spree at the World Cup has continued, with the Australian opener posting his second century of the tournament against Bangladesh.

Just a week after punishing Pakistan in Taunton, Warner gave Bangladesh the same treatment at Trent Bridge as he was dominant through the covers and strong off the back foot.

He brought up his century when he worked his 110th ball to the legside before jumping in the air to celebrate in customary.

While still not operating at his usual rapid scoring rate, Warner has looked in complete control.

The left-hander at one stage went 49 balls without a boundary, but struck seven fours and two sixes in his hundred.

His first cleared the boundary when he hooked Mustafizur Rahman over square leg and deep into the stands, he then swept Shakib Al Hasan for six over midwicket.

His only half-chance came when he cut to backward point on 10, where the ball fell just short of Sabbir Rahman.

The century is the 16th of his one-day international career but just his second in England.

The 32-year-old is also the fourth batsman of the tournament to have made two hundreds in the competition.

His run-scoring tally for the World Cup is now beyond 350 from five completed innings.

Cricket World Cup: Michael Holding responds to ICC 'censorship' following on-air umpire criticism "Is the objective to protect the umpires even when they do a bad job?"

There has been something curious about David Warner during this World Cup . The swagger has been replaced by the straitjacket. In lieu of his customary strut at the start of the innings, Warner has begun with ostentatious care that has less resembled the Warner of old than an Alastair Cook ODI tribute act.
