Australia emerged victorious against Oman on Thursday in what was a thrilling start to their T20 World Cup campaign, but the highlight of the match was David Warner's record-breaking performance.

The veteran opener, long synonymous with Australia's aggressive top order, surpassed his former opening partner Aaron Finch to become Australia's highest run-getter in T20 internationals.

Warner's milestone moment and Finch's heartwarming gesture delight fans worldwide

The match, held at Bridgetown, Barbados, began with Australia as the firm favorite. However, the team was quickly brought back to earth by a disciplined bowling display from Oman.

Reduced to 56/3 at the halfway mark after being asked to bat first, Australia found themselves in a dismal position. David Warner, typically known for his explosive starts, was forced to play a more anchoring role.

Yet, amid the struggle, Warner had his moment of glory. In the eighth over, he cut the ball to register his 3,021st T20I run, going past Finch's record in his 104th outing.

The cameras captured Aaron Finch, now part of the commentary team, reacting with raised eyebrows and applause from the press enclave. Warner, catching the moment in real-time, responded with a wide grin and a coy wave at his former teammate.

The heartwarming exchange between the two cricketing stalwarts quickly went viral, with Twitterati celebrating the camaraderie that extended beyond the cricket field. The sight of Finch applauding Warner's achievement was proof of their enduring friendship and the spirit of sportsmanship.

Meanwhile, despite the early setbacks, Australia rallied to set a formidable target of 165, thanks to half-centuries from Warner and Marcus Stoinis. Oman, in response, crumbled under the pressure of Australia's disciplined bowling attack.

Stoinis, capping off an all-round performance, took three wickets, helping to restrict Oman to 125/9, securing a 39-run victory for Australia.
