WATCH : Salt tonks biggest six of the tournament leaving Starc in disarray


Winning the toss and opting to field first didn’t work out well for England, as openers David Warner and Travis Head unleashed a barrage against the new ball bowlers, amassing 70 runs in just five overs.

The Australian middle and lower order sustained this momentum, culminating in the first-ever 200-plus total in World Cup history.

In reply, the English openers started with equal fervor. Phil Salt electrified the crowd by smashing a colossal 106-meter six off Mitchell Starc, instantly invigorating the spectators.

After a dot ball and a single from the first two deliveries, Starc delivered a fuller ball aimed at the middle stump. Salt read it early and whipped it over wide long-on, sending the ball soaring into the top tier of the Hall and Griffith Stand.

The replays confirmed the shot’s distance as a massive 106 meters, leaving the Twitterverse buzzing with admiration.
