Justin Langer: David’s six off double-bounce ball unbelievable

David Warner’s six on a delivery that bounced twice in the semi-final has been termed unsportsmanlike, but Australia coach Justin Langer on Friday called the shot 

Warner hit 49 to set up Australia’s five-wicket victory over Pakistan here on Thursday to book a title clash with New Zealand. But his 30-ball knock had two interesting moments including when he jumped out of his crease sideways to smash Mohammad Hafeez for a six over deep mid-wicket after the ball had slipped from the bowlers hand and connected with the bat on a double bounce. Langer said he was impressed by Warner’s instinct to make a shot out of the ball that would have surprised any batsman. “Oh my gosh! It’s one of the best things I have ever seen in the game of cricket. I don’t think anyone would have the instincts to do that,” Langer told reporters.

“Most people would not have been sure what to do. It’s a no ball and then to have the talent and ability to hit it for six, unbelievable.  And then he walked of course when he nicked it, so anyone thinks it to be unsportsmanlike, probably evens it up a bit.” The second key moment came when Warner fell to spinner Shadab Khan, caught behind and walked back only for replays to suggest the left-hand opener did not edge the ball.
