Captain Steve Smith (107 retired out) and Shaun Marsh (104 retired out) scored tons.
“I thought I have more height and so high arm action and the ball will thus bounce more. So I did that and he (Warner) got out,” Saini, who was successful in getting the leading edge as the southpaw looked to pull, said.
“It is more special that I got him out off a bouncer,” the 24-year old added.
