Warner smashed 64 off 42 balls and Finch hit 37 off 23 deliveries as Australia romped to 155-3 in 17 overs for its second successive win in Group 1. Australia, which defeated South Africa in the first game, joined England at the top of the group.
Both Australian openers hammered boundaries at will against spinners and fast bowlers in an explosive start of 70 off 41 balls, with Lahiru Kumara getting smashed for three boundaries and a six in one over before eventually finishing with expensive figures of 0-48 off just three overs.
Warner, who hit 10 powerful boundaries in his explosive knock, finally got caught at wide long-off in the 15th overs before Steve Smith (28 not out) and Marcus Stoinis (16) carried Australia to a dominating win.
After the match, he copied Cristiano Ronaldo’s style and removed the bottles of Coca-Cola displayed on the table during the press conference.
“Can I remove these? Though I have to put it there.” “If it’s good enough for Cristiano, it’s good enough for me. That’s right,” he added while putting the two bottles back.

Ronaldo’s act of removing the soft drink during a press conference reportedly cost the company a whopping US$ 4 billion.
