David Warner achieves milestone in triumph at the T20 World Championship in Australia | Cricket news
Matthew Hayden previously held this position for 265 runs at the 2007 T20 World Cup, followed by Shane Watson for 249 runs at the 2012 T20 World Cup. David Warner was also the second highest run goal of the T20 World Cup 2021. Pakistani skipper Babar Azam is the leading run scorer with 303 runs.
Earlier Sunday, Kane Williamson played a brilliant innings of 85 runs when New Zealand scored 172/4. Australia had decided to bowl first after winning the throw on Sunday. New Zealand got off to a slow start and struggled to speed up its innings before Williamson took control of things. Dropped with a single score of 21, the Kiwi skipper let go of the Australian bowlers for a masterful stroke of 85.
Despite Warner and Mitchell Marsh chasing a large 173 total and losing skipper Aaron Finch early on, Warner and Mitchell Marsh formed a big partnership for the second wicket to take the game away from New Zealand. Both Warner and Marsh hit the fifties to lead the Australians to a comfortable win.
