David Warner came back to his fluent best as the left-handed batsman smashed his 15th One-day International hundred to set up Australia’s much-needed win against Pakistan on Wednesday at Taunton. Warner was awarded man of the match for his brilliance with the bat. The 32-year-old, however, gave his award to a young Australian fan, a gesture hailed as “wonderful” by the Cricket World Cup.
“David Warner made this young Australia fan’s day by giving him his Player of the Match award after the game. Wonderful gesture. #SpiritOfCricket #CWC19,” Cricket World Cup captioned the video on Twitter.
The young kid was over-joyed by Warner’s gesture towards the end of the game as the cricketer signed his player of the match award and gave it to him.
Speaking to the ICC, the youngster said it feels awesome. “We were just waving the flag and he just came over and gave it to us,” he said.
When asked about whether he is a David Warner fan, the kid said that “yes, I really like him and I am happy with Australia’s win”.
