Warner stars in Australia win
David Warner hit a century as Australia secured a 41-run win over Pakistan in the Cricket World Cup.
Warner's knock of 107 and Aaron Finch's important 82 put Australia in charge and they seemed on course to set a huge target for Pakistan.
However, they collapsed from 223-2 to 307 all out to give Pakistan a chance and they did threaten to get close, until Mitchell Starc took two wickets in an over to all-but end any hopes of a fight back.
"We should have been around 340-350, but credit to the way they bowled, their second spells were excellent," Warner said after the match, as reported by the BBC.
"It was a used wicket and it was a tad dry and they bowled a very tight line and gave me no width. There was a bit of movement so you had to be tighter and you had to put the bad balls away.
"It means a lot to a batter to get a century. It was a great effort from Pakistan in the end but our bowlers bowled excellent. They probably got closer than we expected."
Australia sit second in the table with three wins and a defeat, while Pakistan are ninth with just one win and one no result after four games.
