During the second day of the first Test of ongoing Pakistan’s tour of Australia in Brisbane, Australia’s opening batsman, David Warner went super-lucky as he was bowled but was not-out because the bails didn’t fall.
It happened on the last delivery of the 86th over when David Warner left an in-swinging delivery from Imran Khan. Surprisingly the ball clipped the off-stump before reaching towards Pakistan wicket-keeper Mohammad Rizwan.
It was just sheer luck otherwise David Warner would have to make his way back to pavilion after scoring his 22nd Test century.
Talking about his knock, David Warner kept everyone on the edge of his seats as he slammed a 222-run opening partnership with a new opening partner in Joe Burns (97).
Warner remained a 222-run opening partnership with a new opening partner in Joe Burns (97) and finished the second day on 151* (265) with the help of 10 fours. This wasn’t the typical Warner’s innings as the opener appeared gave a lot of prominence to running between the wickets.
The video of Warner surviving the dismissal is going viral on social media, leaving people in astonishment. Here, watch the video:

Twitterati can’t stop sharing their views on this as “#DavidWarner” trends on twitter. Here, check out the reactions of twitterati on this:
It’s pretty scummy how CA is so chummy with a betting company that they @ them in almost every tweet. Gambling is a cancer not just on cricket, but on society in general. It kind of sickens me how they actively promote it constantly.

@Fid210 still remember your bail sitting on top of the stump at Bentley. Wicket keeper jumps up and down to make it fall off. Umpire gives it out! 😂😂😂

hehehe, we don't accept the result of this test match, first, they didn't give no-ball and Rizwan was given out and then this is bowled but bails didn't fell, on a lighter note maybe some glue…………………
