LEICESTER Jun 21 2012
Australia's David Warner has had his dashing innings stalled by rain in the one-day match against Leicestershire at Grace Road.
The left-hander was unbeaten on 74 from 78 balls and had steered the tourists to 2-127 in the 27th over when the clash was halted due to a shower.
Warner had struck three sixes in his innings, clubbing two in one over off the bowling of spinner James Sykes just before the break in play.
Captain Michael Clarke was unbeaten on 14 from 25 balls.
After play was delayed by one hour and 45 minutes because of rain, Warner and Matthew Wade (32) put on 69 for the opening wicket before the wicketkeeper was trapped in front by Abdul Razzaq.
Shane Watson (1) came and went quickly, failing to connect with an attempted heave over mid wicket and being caught in the deep off the bowling of Sykes.
The tourists head to Ireland following the match for Saturday's clash in Belfast before a final warm-up match against Essex.
