But apart from leaving the fans impressed with his on-field performance, the 32-year-old won hearts with a brilliant gesture after the match. Warner, who was named Player of the match, gave away his trophy to a young fan at the stadium, who was waving towards him, as he walked past the crowd after the win.

The young fan was questioned how he feels about the gesture. “Feels awesome. Feels really good to have that,” he said.

After winning the award, Warner said: “There was a bit of movement early on, so I had to be a lot tighter. This century means a lot as a batsman.”
