In the ongoing showdown between the Netherlands and Australia, David Warner showcased his prowess by notching his second consecutive century in this World Cup. This achievement places him in a distinguished group of players, including Quinton de Kock, who have managed to secure multiple centuries in this tournament.

This extraordinary performance marked Warner’s sixth World Cup century in just 23 innings, drawing him level with the cricketing legend Sachin Tendulkar for the second-most ODI World Cup centuries. He trails only behind Rohit Sharma, who boasts a remarkable seven centuries in the World Cup.

Additionally, Warner etched his name in history by surpassing Ricky Ponting’s record for the most centuries in the World Cup by an Australian. Prior to this match, both Warner and Ponting shared the record with five centuries each, but Warner now stands as the sole record holder.

Furthermore, Warner’s remarkable feat equals the records set by Sachin Tendulkar and Tilakaratne Dilshan for hitting multiple centuries in a single World Cup edition. Warner has now achieved this remarkable feat twice, a feat shared only with Sachin and Dilshan.
