Warner top-scored with a quick-fire 49 against Pakistan in the semi-final. It laid down the platform for a comfortable chase with Matthew Wade and Marcus Stoinis finishing the game off. 

Warner again was back amongst the runs scoring t 53 off 38 deliveries in the final as Australia chased down 173 with more than an over to spare. It helped the Aussies win their first-ever T20 World Cup title after winning five 50-over World Cups. 

“David was back to his scintillating best during the T20 WC and his aggression at the top of the order was outstanding,” Arnold was quoted as saying in the ICC statement.

“His 209 runs at a strike rate of 151 in four innings simply tells the story. There was no recovering from the early onslaught by Warner and his stroke play was pleasing to the eye,” Arnold added.
