AUS vs PAK Day-Night Test: Twitter goes wild as David Warner smash record breaking triple century at the Adelaide Oval

Posted On

David Warner, the swashbuckling Australian opener, smashed his maiden triple century on Day 2 of the ongoing Pink-Ball Test against Pakistan at the Adelaide Oval on Saturday.

The southpaw reached the 300-run mark by hitting a boundary towards the mid-wicket region.

On Friday, Warner opened the batting with Joe Burns (4), and till stumps, he was batting on 166 not out. His incredible 361-run partnership with No. 3 Marnus Labuschagne dominated Pakistan bowling attack.

In the first session of play on Day 3, Warner took a single on the last delivery of 84th over of the innings to complete his double century.

Before fans and experts could anticipate if Warner will break Brain Lara’s 400 run milestone, the Aussie skipper Tim Paine declared the innings. Warner remained unbeaten on 335.

After the declaration, Warner receives a guard of honor from his team-mates near the boundary rope.

Warner entered his name into the record books:

  • 335* – Highest score by any player at the Adelaide Oval; previous best: Sir Don Bradman – 299*
  • 335*-  Highest score by an Aussie in Test cricket after Matthew Hayden’s 380 against Zimbabwe in 2003
