Summary

  • NOTTINGHAM, England, June 20 (Reuters) – Openers Aaron Finch and David Warner have proved so consistent in this World Cup that Australia have been able to notch huge totals without major risk and it was their 121-run partnership that set up their 381-5 against Bangladesh on Thursday.
  • For long periods it wasn’t sparkling, but it was effective, and after Finch was out for 53, Warner kicked on to score a hugely impressive 166.
  • “We’ve been pretty consistent, it’s just nice to get the side off to a decent start,” Finch told reporters after Australia’s fifth win in six games put the defending champions top of the standings and firmly on course for the semi-finals.
  • “The wickets have been nice to bat on, not much movement, ball pretty low, so its a good combination for an opening batsman,” Finch added.
  • “It’s not like we go on purpose and not try to score but you have to respect the new ball and the bowlers bowled well,” Warner said.
