The hosts once again got off to a good start courtesy of David Warner and Aaron Finch. Warner got the Australian innings underway with a boundary through the point region off Shami in the first over. The manner in which he leaned back to place the short and wide fourth delivery on the offside showed Warner’s intent. The duo stitched a partnership of 150 in just 25 overs.

However, a sensational throw from the deep by Shreyas Iyer got rid-off Warner for 83.

Iyer collected the ball and scored a direct hit from long-off, Warner puts in a full-length dive but that was not enough to save him.

After survivng the blow, Finch was standing with a hand on his tummy, when KL Rahul decided to poke some fun and tapped on his belly area lightly, and it felt like the batsman had terrible pain.
