In a gripping encounter between Australia and West Indies in the ongoing T20 match, David Warner's wicket has marked a pivotal moment in the game.

However, his innings came to an end in the 13th over when he fell victim to the bowling of Roston Chase.

Chase delivered a flighted delivery around the wicket, tempting Warner to go for the big shot. Warner, known for his aggressive batting style, attempted to slog across the line but failed to connect cleanly.
