ODI World Cup 2023, IND vs AUS: David Warner Joins AB de Villiers, Sachin Tendulkar In Elite List With This Record
ODI World Cup 2023 : In just 19 innings, David Warner became the fastest player in ICC Cricket World Cup history to amass 1,000 runs. Australia vs. India was the match that saw this historic achievement. This accomplishment was made possible by his boundary off Hardik Pandya, which broke the previous record of 20 innings shared by AB de Villiers and Sachin Tendulkar.
David Warner became the fourth Australian hitter to score 1000 runs in the ODI World Cup and the fastest player to do so, marking a noteworthy accomplishment.
The left-handed opener reached this milestone in just 19 innings when he hit a boundary off Hardik Pandya in the game's sixth over. On Sunday, Warner needed just eight runs to accomplish this incredible feat.
Warner attempted a lofted drive off Kuldeep Yadav's bowling but was eventually dismissed for 41 runs. The ball ended up in Kuldeep's hands straight.
Regarded as one of the best white-ball batters in history, Warner broke records held by AB de Villiers and Sachin Tendulkar, who both need 20 innings to accomplish the same thing.
The list also has the legendary opener Viv Richards of the West Indies and the elegant left-handed opener Sourav Ganguly of India, who accomplished the feat in 21 innings.
Australia's captain Pat Cummins won the toss and elected to bat first in the tantalising match. A noteworthy 69-run connection between Warner and Steve Smith was showcased throughout the game.
At Chepauk, though, India's bowlers were able to get back on track. Virat Kohli caught Mitchell Marsh at first slip, giving Jasprit Bumrah the first wicket of the tournament for India.
The next four wickets were taken by Indian spinners, and Ravindra Jadeja took three of them, quickly getting rid of Alex Carey, Marnus Labuschagne, and Steven Smith. In 32 Overs, Australia was at 130-5 as of the most recent report.
Ishan Kishan takes over for Shubman Gill, who is unable to recuperate from his illness. Due to injuries, Travis Head and Marcus Stoinis were unable to play for Australia. Both sides will be motivated to win the first game of their World Cup campaigns.
