David Warner on Usama Mir’s dropped catch: “I didn’t even see it because I was blocked by ‘Bison’”

<p>Opening batsman David Warner said he was unaware of the lost catch that enabled him to continue and score an incredible 163 in Australia’s 62-run victory against Pakistan in the World Cup on Friday in Bengaluru.</p>
<p>Usama Mir dropped the 36-year-old left-hander in the fifth over of the game off Shaheen Shah Afridi with Australia 22 for no loss and just 10 runs on the board.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-247596″ src=”” alt=” day 1 box office earnings for ganapath kriti sanon and tiger shroffs movie are slo” width=”1151″ height=”766″ srcset=” 275w,×100.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1151px) 100vw, 1151px” title=”David Warner on Usama Mir's dropped catch: "I didn't even see it because I was blocked by 'Bison'" 3″></p>
<p>In order to assist his side amass 367-9, he went on to score a 124-ball 163 and, together with Mitchell Marsh (121), put up an Australian World Cup record 259 for the first wicket.</p>
<p>Warner, who was named man of the match for his innings that included nine sixes and 14 boundaries, said that he “actually didn’t even see him drop it.”</p>
<p>“I was behind Marsh, a.k.a. the ‘bison. Actually, I was disappointed that I didn’t get one as well. Being an opening batsman means you have to deal with it. You’re likely to take some risks if you’re going to pursue it.</p>
<p>Imam-ul-Haq (70) and Abdullah Shafique (64), Pakistan’s opening pair, gave their side a strong start of 134 runs. However, the middle-order batting collapsed, as Australian leg-spinner Adam Zampa claimed 4-53 despite experiencing back spasms.</p>
<p>Marsh turned 32 on Friday, and Warner expressed his happiness for him.</p>
<p>“He told me today that he hasn’t really scored any runs on his birthday so he’s happy about that and I think tonight’s Indian tradition, cake in the face,” added Warner.</p>
<p>“You would constantly fight for him, and I was so thrilled for him. He’s a nice guy to have around the locker room, you know. He always has a unique personality, makes everyone around him look their best, and is the life of the party.</p>
<p>“it’s what you need in teams, and you need it in these games when the stakes are so high. It was fantastic.</p>
<p>Australia’s World Cup campaign has been reinvigorated with two straight victories following as many defeats thanks to their victory on Friday.</p>
<p>Given the history of this field and the possibility that a little amount of dew may arrive and make it somewhat easier to bat on, Warner remarked, “I honestly thought 350 was probably par.”</p>
<p>Australia, a five-time winner, will take against the Netherlands the next day in New Delhi.</p>
