But then, Warner, with Steven Smith as his partner, never lifted his foot off the pedal and runs continued to flow. The little left-hander was lucky to be dropped when on 40 (73 for one) off Bravo as Shadab Jakati misjudged the catch.
Dhoni wrung in bowling changes, but to no effect as Warner and Steven Smith carried on without undue problems as they added 50 in just 37 deliveries.
In a desperate move, Bollinger was brought back in for the 13th over, but again he leaked 13 with Warner smashing a six and a boundary. The 15th, bowled by left-arm spinner Jakati brought the Blues another 15 followed by 13 off the next by Raina as Blues touched 134 for one after 15.
