It was a memorable day for David Warner, who went on to break several records as he slammed a triple century, during the ongoing second Test against Pakistan at the Adelaide Oval.
After a poor return to Ashes in England, David Warner made a powerful comeback with a century in the first Test against Pakistan in Brisbane. However, the second test against Pakistan became his most memorable knock ever.
He smashed the bowlers of Pakistan to all the corners of the ground and achieved his maiden triple century in 89 balls making it the 4th fastest triple hundred ever in the history of Test cricket.
Before David Warner, the triple hundred for hundred came from the bat of the former captain Michael Clarke, who smashed hit 329* vs India in January 2012. David Warner was the first triple hundred for Australia since then. His triple hundred was also the first from a left-handed batsman after Kumar Sangakkara’s 319 vs Bangladesh in February 2014. It was also the first triple hundred, in all matches in Tests, after Karun Nair’s 303* vs England in the year 2016.
Amidst applause and high cheer, as David Warner walked towards the dressing room, he gave away his helmet and gloves to his young fans, who were later seen fighting to get hold of the gears.
The video of David Warner’s heartwarming gesture has been winning hearts on social media. Here, watch the video:
Reckon the poor little guy in the blue CA hoodie might have been Warner’s intended recipient of the helmet?
And well done the girl not letting that boy in the striped shirt swipe the gloves from her! #AUSvPAK pic.twitter.com/C1aIzGr3BY
