David Warner smashed the 16th century of his ODI career against Bangladesh in Trent Bridge on Thursday. This is the second century for Warner in the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.
The southpaw reached the three-figure mark in just 110 balls. He is now the first Australian batsman to score multiple centuries at the World Cup since Matthew Hayden in 2007.
Warner is now also the highest individual scorer of the tournament with 166 run innings.
Here’s how the cricketing world reacted to the David Warner show:

Top stuff from Warner. At this rate, 350 could be on and that was improbable at one stage. Will be a far tougher chase for Bangladesh than the one against the West Indies
