Warner grabs his Triple Century; Breaks several Records

Australia opening batsman David Warner achieved his first triple century in Test cricket during the second day of the day-night Test against Pakistan in Adelaide. Warner took 389 balls to grab his first triple-ton in the longest format of the game. He is the seventh Australian cricketer to score a triple hundred in a Test inning.

As he grabbed the 300-run mark, David Warner also eclipsed Aussie great Sir Don Bradman for an incredible feat. He is now the highest Test scorer at the Adelaide Oval in a single inning. Bradman scored an unbeaten 299 at the stadium against South Africa in 1932, which was a record.

Warner has surpassed Indian captain Virat Kohli to register the highest Test score in 2019. Virat Kohli had smashed an unbeaten knock of 254, including 33 boundaries and two sixes, in the second Test of the three-match series against South Africa in Pune last month.

While scoring his maiden century in the day-night Test cricket on Friday, Warner had reached 166 at stumps on Day 1. It is the highest score for any batsman in a day’s play in pink-ball cricket. The previous highest was 156 by Pakistan batsman Azhar Ali on a single day of the day-night Test against the West Indies in Dubai in 2016.

Outstanding Partnership of David warner and  Marnus Labuschagne:

Leading the two-Test series 1-0 with a victory in Brisbane, Australia lost opener, Joe Burns, early in the fourth over but then rode on a 361-run stand between David Warner and  Marnus Labuschagne for the second-wicket to take control.

The 361-run partnership between Warner and Labuschagne is the highest stand for any wicket in day-night Tests. The previous best was a 248-run stand between Alastair Cook and Joe Root against the West Indies in Birmingham in 2017.
