The veteran Australia opener David Warner has achieved a new milestone in the illustrious cricketing career. He scored an amazing half-century in his 100th appearance in T20I cricket. With this half-century, Warner has also become the first player in history to score 50+ scores in his 100th match across all the formats.

Notably, the 37-year-old was in the headlines when he announced his retirement from the ODI and Test cricket last month; the third and last Test of the three-match home series against Pakistan was the last Test appearance of David Warner.

Earlier, he announced his retirement from ODI cricket on the first day of this year on January 1, 2024. However, the star Southpaw has decided to continue his career in the T20I cricket.

He played a swashbuckling knock of 70 runs off just 36 balls, hitting 12 fours and a six, aggregating an amazing strike rate of 194.44. He also stitched a brilliant 93-run partnership with Josh Inglis for the first ticket. Inglis also scored 39 runs off 25 balls, 5 fours and a six.

Talking about the action of the match, Australia posted a big total of 213 runs for the loss of 7 wickets courtesy of a late but quick cameo of Tim David, who scored 37 runs off just 17 balls, with 4 fours and 2 sixes.

Andre Russell scalped 3 wickets for West Indies, alongside 2 wickets bagged by Alzarri Joseph. Besides these two, Jason Holder and Ramario Shepherd also picked one wicket each.

Coming back to David Warner, he has also become only the third player in history to play 100 matches across all the formats after the former Indian skipper and modern-day batting great, Virat Kohli, alongside the former New Zealand great Ross Taylor.
