1. Warner hitting Mohammad Hafeez’s double bounce delivery for a six
In what was a crucial match for Australia, David Warner played an impressive yet eventful knock of 49 runs. His innings, however, caught the attention of the netizens not only because of his splendid show with the willow but for a few surprising things that followed.
The batter hit Mohammad Hafeez’s double bounce delivery for a six, and that generated a lot of discussion on social media platforms. This did not go quite well with a few former cricketers as they criticized Warner for the same. Some of them opined that the batter should have left the delivery to maintain the spirit of the game.

While on the other hand, the batter received support from head coach Justin Langer who found it quite impressive. “Oh my gosh! It’s one of the best things I have ever seen in the game of cricket. I don’t think anyone would have the instincts to do that,” Langer said post the match.
