Australian opener David Warner put in a match-winning performance in the round-robin stage game against Pakistan at the World Cup on Wednesday with a century that earned him the man of the match award. But he earned a lot of praise after giving away the prize to a young Australian fan after the game.

It was pretty clear that the century meant a lot to him. Speaking after being awarded the man of the match for his 107 off 111 balls, Warner said,”There was a bit of movement early on, so I had to be a lot tighter. This century means a lot as a batsman.”

But after receiving the award, the Australian opener walked over to some of the team’s fans at the ground and gave the award with the case to a young Australian fan.

Asked how he felt about receiving the award, the boy said,”Feels awesome. Feels really good to have that.”
