Warner elated at century as Australia beat Pakistan in World Cup

David Warner scored his first century since returning from a ban as holders Australia ran out 41-run winners over Pakistan in an exciting World Cup clash at Taunton

After losing to India on Sunday, Australia needed a response and Warner, back from serving a 12-month suspension for his part in last year’s ball-tampering scandal, struck a classy 107 in his side’s 307 all out in 49 overs.

Warner and skipper Aaron Finch shared a 146-run opening partnership, Australia’s largest in ODIs in England since 1975, but Pakistan hit back with Mohammad Amir taking five wickets, earning praise from team captain Sarfaraz Ahmed.

Despite beating hosts England, Pakistan have lost two of their four matches and have work to do to reach the semi-finals.
