Australian opener David Warner becomes the first Australian player to score a century in his 100th ODI. Overall he is the 8th player to achieve this feat after Gordon Greenidge, Chris Cairns, Yousuf Youhana, Kumar Sangakkara, Chris Gayle, Marcus Trescothick, and Ramnaresh Sarwan.

Warner achieved the milestone during the fourth ODI against India as he smashed his 14th ODI century which was also his first in the limited overs cricket in India. Opening the innings for Australia after skipper Steve Smith winning the toss in Bangalore, Warner made his intentions clear from the start.

The southpaw reached his century off 104 balls with the help of 10 fours and three sixes. He was finally dismissed by Kedar Jadhav for 124 runs from 118 balls. Trying to clear the boundary, he sent the ball high into the air and was caught by Axar Patel at long-on. But he had done the damage before that along with Aaron Finch.

Both openers shared a stand of 231 runs from just 35 overs and laid a perfect platform for Australia incoming batsmen, but after that, they lost the plot as they only managed to score 114 runs in last 15 overs. Australians finish their innings at 334/5 after the end of 50 overs.
