Australia’s aggressive opening batsman David Warner enjoys a massive fan following in India owing to his craze for the Indian songs and culture along with his terrific batting. During the lockdown, Warner developed a taste for the songs from the Hindi and South film industry and uploaded a variety of videos on his social media handles where he could be seen shaking his leg on the Indian hit numbers.
Though he likes a lot of Indian songs, his love for Telugu superhit number Butta Bomma is something different.

As far as the match is concerned, Australia registered a comfortable victory against the visiting India in the first ODI of the three-match series to take the lead by 1-0. Batting first, the hosts presented a spectacular show as they posted a mammoth target of 375 on the board in their 50 overs. The opening duo of Warner and Aaron Finch stitched a 156-run stand in 27.5 overs as Warner smashed 69 runs while Finch scored his 17th ODI ton.
The former captain Steve Smith was also in terrific form as he smashed 105 runs off just 66 deliveries. He was aptly supported by all-rounder Glenn Maxwell who added 45 runs to the scoreboard in 19 balls.
In reply, India could score only 308 runs as no batsmen other than Shikhar Dhawan and Hardik Pandya took the responsibility. Hardik emerged as the highest run-getter for the team with 90 runs off 76 deliveries while Dhawan also scored 74 runs. Adam Zampa and Josh Hazlewood took four and three wickets respectively to ensure that their team won the game by 66 runs.
