Both David Warner and Mitchell Marsh slammed centuries against Pakistan in the 2023 World Cup

The Australia cricket team is in control of the proceedings against Pakistan in their 2023 World Cup clash in Bengaluru. Both openers, David Warner and Mitchell Marsh, slammed their individual centuries. Buoyed by their win over Sri Lanka, Australia eye their second win on the bounce in the tournament after starting off with two defeats. On the other hand, the Pakistan juggernaut ended after three wins last week with a humiliating defeat to arch-rivals India in Ahmedabad. Australia have six of their 10 meetings against Pakistan in World Cup competitions.
Warner and Marsh put in a ruthless display of attacking cricket, in turn crossing the highest-ever runs scored by an Australian opening pair in the ODI World Cup. Warner and Marsh crossed Shane Watson and Brad Haddin's record of 183 runs, which was scored against Canada back in the 2011 World Cup, which was jointly hosted by India, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka.
The highest-ever ODI partnership by the Australian team in any batting position came back in 2015, when David Warner and Steve Smith put together 260 runs against Afghanistan for the second wicket. The second-highest partnership was scored in 2003 between Ricky Ponting and Damien Martyn (234*).
