Australian opener David Warner hit his maiden triple century in Test cricket on Day 2 of the Pink Ball Test against Pakistan in Adelaide on Saturday.
The southpaw reached the 300-run mark by guiding the ball towards the leg side boundary off Mohammad Abbas and punched the air in elation as the crowd went ecstatic.

But his wife Candice, who was present in the stands had a very different reaction. She was spotted wiping tears from her cheeks after David reached the landmark. Candice tried hard to get a hold of her emotions but the occasion got the better of her.

With this triple hundred, Warner’s score is now the highest individual score at the Adelaide Oval as he surpassed Don Bradman’s 299. He also went past Don Bradman’s score of 334, which was also the highest score of former Australia skipper Mark Taylor.
However, the highest individual score for Australia lies with opener Matthew Hayden with 380. He hit that against Zimbabwe at the Perth Stadium in 2003.
