On Saturday, David Warner scored an epic knock of 335 against Pakistan in the ongoing Day-Night Test. Warner’s knock ensured that his team maintained a stranglehold over Pakistan in the 2-Test match series, which they are already leading 1-0.
Candice Warner praises David Warner on his achievement with Gandhi’s quote:
While Australian opener’s effort and hard work had experts comparing him to legends, Candice Warner, quoted Mahatma Gandhi while paying a tribute to her husband’s outstanding innings.
After Australian captain Tim Paine declared the team’s innings with Warner still going strong, Candice wrote: “Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will. (Mahatma Gandhi) It’s not important what other people believe about you. It’s only important what you believe about yourself. @davidwarner31 #335notout.”

Warner is an aggressive batsman but the triple hundred is a testament to Warner’s new-found thrust of staying at the field as long as possible. This was evident from Warner’s own admission of his lack of patience in a tweet reply from 4 years ago.
In 2015, David was asked by one of the Twitter users, “please get a triple century in test cricket’, Warner had famously replied by saying: ‘Have you seen my patience haha.’
Have you seen my patience haha. https://t.co/Slaxb9QL9S

Warner’s efforts were followed by an inspirational spell of Mitchell Starc (6/66) which bundled out Pakistan for 302 in their first innings – 287 behind Australia’s total. After Tim Paine asked the opposition to follow on, Pakistan was in dire straits once again losing 3 wickets for just 39 runs when rain brought an abrupt end to the proceedings.
