Aaron Finch couldn’t replicate his opposite number’s heroics tonight. He was struggling to get going and eventually deided to break the shackles against Trent Boult, only to find the safe hands of Daryl Mitchell in the deep. However, Australia were resurrected by David Warner and Mitchell Marsh, with the left-right combo scoring runs at a fair clip. Australia are cruising at 97/1 after 11 overs, and the yellow brigade looks well and truly in charge of the 173-run chase.
💥 SMASHED! 💥
David Warner’s wicket is going to be key for both #Australia and #NewZealand – the left-hander has already shown how dangerous he can be!
Australia 50-1, chasing 173 to win the #T20WorldCup
