David Warner’s comeback half-century leads New South Wales charge


Alex Carey made 99 for South Australia but his was the only innings of note for the home side

New South Wales 4 for 208 (Warner 87) beat South Australia 205 (Carey 99) by six wickets

David Warner made a stylish return to action with a thumping 87 off 74 balls in his first outing since the Test series against India in mid-January as New South Wales cantered to victory with more than 20 overs to spare.

Having been sidelined by a groin injury which he has said will continue to affect him for some time to come he pummeled the South Australia attack at Adelaide Oval after the home side had been rolled for a significantly under-par total with only Alex Carey‘s 99 giving them something to bowl at.

Warner was soon into his work as New South Wales raced ahead of the asking rate and brought up his half-century from 46 deliveries. As he and Ollie Davies charged towards the winning post it looked as though it would be a race between the target and Warner’s hundred before he spliced high into the on side looking for another boundary.
