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.
