David Warner fell cheaply in a third consecutive game, but skipper Aaron Finch and Mitch Marsh put on a brisk 52-run stand in exactly six overs to keep Australia charging ahead. While the No. 3 got going with a pull first ball, it was the Australian captain who led the attack in the powerplay – going after Mark Adair with a 14-run over that included a lusty blow over midwicket for maximum runs. Marsh began to flex his muscles just after powerplay, of which Australia managed 38/1. He hammered two full balls from Fionn Hand over midwicket in the expensive seventh over, to bring up Australia’s fifty.
