David Warner Punches His Bat In Frustration After Lungi Ngidi Removes Him In ICC World Cup 2023

David Warner wasn’t happy with himself after he got out in match 10 of the ICC World Cup 2023 against South Africa. The opening batter looked frustrated and even punched his bat at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow. 

In the chase of 312 runs, Australia didn’t start well as they were jolted with early blows. After they lost Mitchell Marsh early, it was expected that David Waner would carry on and take his team to a comfortable position. But that wasn’t the case as he perished soon after that. 

Lungi Ngidi didn’t bowl the greatest of deliveries. He offered a lot of widths and was short too. David Warner tried to cut it hard and couldn’t keep it down. Rassie van der Dussen bagged a low catch at cover point to send the batter packing. 

Here’s the video: 

This was the fourth time, that Lungi Ngidi removed David Warner. The Australian batter ended with a score of 13 runs off 27 balls. After his wicket, Australia faced a terrible collapse and were tottering at 70/6. Marnus Labuschagne (47) was the lone warrior for his team as he tried to build the innings but couldn’t score big. 

South Africa bundled out Australia for 177 runs and registered a big win of 134 runs. Kagiso Rabada was the pick of the bowlers as he bagged three wickets. Marco Jansen, Keshav Maharaj, and Tabraiz Shamsi picked two wickets each whereas Lungi Ngidi also picked one scalp. 

AUS vs SA: Everyone’s Hurting, We’ll Try And Take – Pat Cummins After Batters Including David Warner Fail

No Australia batter looked settled at the crease. Mitchell Marsh and David Warner went for 27 runs and after wickets fell like a pack of cards. Pat Cummins talked about the loss and expressed his disappointment, saying that they are hurt. He opened up about the areas they need to improve and added that they will come back stronger. He explained: 

“I thought Quinton (de Kock) batted really well, couldn’t get a breakthrough. From where they were, we were quite happy with 310, thought it was chaseable. Looked like hard work out there tonight, their bowlers bowled really well, think it nipped around a bit more under lights. (On if it would’ve been easier to bat first) Really hardi to say. 

“If we want to be challenging in this tournament we need to find ways of performing regardless of batting first or second. Don’t think much needs to be said tonight, everyone’s hurting, we’ll try and take a couple of days off and then make amends to come back stronger in the next one. There’s a few things we need to tidy up.” 

Australia will be next seen in action when they take on Sri Lanka on Monday (16th October).
