David Warner, Aaron Finch Set New World Cup Record At Lord's
David Warner and Aaron Finch have become the first opening combination in World Cup history to hit five successive half-century partnerships.
Warner and Finch passed 50 without loss against England on Tuesday after they were sent in to bat at Lord's, passing the mark for the fifth match in a row.
The form pairing of the tournament, the Australian openers' streak now goes back to their loss to India, when they put on 61 for the first wicket.
They also knocked up 96 in the first match of the tournament against Afghanistan before failing for the only time against the West Indies.
They have put on hundred stands on three occasions too, against Pakistan, Bangladesh and England on Tuesday.
Finch said earlier this week the pair's success was largely down to their measured approach and desire to keep wickets in hand early.
"It hasn't probably been as quick as people are used to in the past when we've batted a bit of time together," Finch said on Sunday.
"There are no goals. There are no benchmarks we try and set (in the powerplay).
"But being no wickets down, that's crucial for any opening combination. That lays a really good foundation."
The duo are also well on track to challenge Sri Lanka's Tillakaratne Dilshan and Upul Tharanga tally of 800 runs together at the 2011 World Cup.
Warner and Finch have now passed 600 together in their partnerships for the tournament, with two more group matches and a likely finals berth to come.
