The 32-year-old was also served with a life ban from any leadership position in the Australian team, painted as the architect of the sandpaper plan that also saw Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft suspended.

Yes, he may have already scored a couple of half-centuries and won a Player of the Match award at this ICC Men's Cricket World Cup 2019 but this had not stopped the suggestions that the real Warner, the confident, unshackled, pugnacious version, had not yet properly reappeared since his return to the worldwide stage. Warner revealed his innings, which proved the foundation of Australia's 41-run win, filled him with both joy and relief after wondering whether he would ever get the chance to enjoy a similar moment ever again.

David Warner, take a bow.

He'll see Candice and his daughters on Thursday (UK time) for the first time since arriving in England as the players' families join the tour.

His return to worldwide duty, though, had not been smooth-sailing, and Warner said that his wife Candice had been his "rock" and his driving force.

"The thing that kept me going was my wife and my kids".

"Personally, it's a great thing", said Warner of his hundred.

"My wife is just, she's just my rock". She's unbelievable. She's determined, disciplined, selfless. "And with the weather, trying to build partnerships again, I probably hold responsible for the way we fell apart there". She's a strong woman. "And now it's about looking forward". "Pakistan need to lift themselves up and I hope they bring their best on Sunday".

Acquitted Knox Back in Italy for Wrongful Conviction Talk
A lawyer for the Kercher family called Knox's impending appearance "inappropriate and uncalled for", according to the Telegraph . She is due to speak at a conference on wrongful convictions and miscarriages of justice in the northern city of Modena tomorrow.

Warner's century had marked his first since he returned to the Australian side from his 12-month ban, as he dominated on the drive and punished Pakistan's bowlers whenever they erred in their length. Only Afridi did it it twice for them in previous editions of the World Cup.

"He was really honest, said he was more timid than normal", Pat Cummins, the pace bowler, said. "And, look, it was just great to be back and part of the team".

David Warner taking snaps in Taunton with Pakistan fans, who did not give the opener a hostile reception. "Just to maintain my level of fitness and hard work, she nailed that into me".

"Yeah, definitely", Warner said when asked if he was anxious he might not get another chance with Australia.

"That's what drove me to keep being as fit as I can, to keep scoring as many runs as I can in the Twenty 20 tournaments I played in, and really enjoy playing in grade cricket".

"I was always coming back to worldwide cricket if selected", Warner told reporters after stumps in his first major press conference since his suspension expired.

Meanwhile, India's assistant coach Sanjay Bangar said that a final decision on Shikhar Dhawan's availability at the ongoing Cricket World Cup will be taken only after 10 to 12 days as he is too precious to be ruled out. I am pumped to be back.
