‘Maybe one day I will get another chance to knock 400 off’- David Warner
In the second Test against Pakistan in Adelaide, Australia opener David Warner had a chance to break Brian Lara’s world record of 400 runs.
But Warner could not exploit that opportunity as the innings was declared by captain Tim Paine. But Warner thinks a chance to break Lara’s record will come to him again.
Lara played an unbeaten 400 runs in Test cricket against England. Lara was in Adelaide on the same day that Warner played an unbeaten 335-run innings against Pakistan. The West Indies legend said later that he assumed Warner had the world record.
Warner met Lara after the Test was over. The picture posted by both. Lara captioned, “735 Not Out! congrats!!” While Warner captioned,
“Great to catch up with the legend himself. Maybe one day I will get another chance to Knock 400 off.”
Australia’s flamboyant opener David Warner was close to scripting history for the highest Test score in Test cricket, but unfortunately, that didn’t happen for him as his skipper Tim Paine declared the innings as Warner remained not out on 335. Cricket fans were absolutely livid with Paine’s declaration and the captain was in the receiving end of trolls and abuses on social media.
However, Warner came to Paine’s defense adding that he declared the innings keeping the weather forecast in mind.
