Warner shines as Australia flex muscle with dominant warm-up triumph

Warner smashed six fours and a trio of massive sixes at the Port of Spain venue, facing just 21 deliveries in an excellent sign for the Aussies after the left-hander struggled for consistency and battled injury during the recent IPL.

Seamer Josh Hazlewood was impressed with what he saw from Warner and expects the veteran to contribute strongly during next month’s event.

“When it comes to these tournaments he always stands up as we know so I expect nothing but big things again from the Bull (Warner),” Hazlewood told Cricket Australia post-match.

“He looked good out there on what looked a pretty tough wicket and he timed the ball pretty well from the outset.

“So we always expect big things from Davey.”

Hazlewood (2/5) set the tone with a superb opening spell that netted three maidens, while first-choice spinner Adam Zampa (3/25) bowled well yet again as Namibia only snuck past 100 courtesy of some decent late hitting from Zane Green (38).
