David Warner beats Bradman, Taylor; becomes seventh Australian player to score triple hundred

David Warner has scored massive unbeaten 335 on day 2 at Adelaide against Pakistan. He has become the seventh Australian cricketer to do so. The batsman has punished Pakistan bowlers really badly to achieve his highest Test score ever.

The left-hander, after breaking the joint-best of Sir Don Bradman (334) and Mark Taylor (334*), has now occupied the second spot – just behind Matthew Hayden’s 380 – among highest-run scorer in an innings for Australia.

Warner is now the second triple centurion in day-night Test cricket after Pakistan’s captain Azhar Ali, who had scored 302 against West Indies in 2016 in Dubai. He has also leveled the record of most numbers of 250+ with Michael Clarke (2 times), only behind Bradman’s 5 times.

Austrlian opener has eclipsed the 300 run mark at brilliant strike-rate of 80.14. He sits on fourth position to do so – only behind Virendar Sehwag , who has done it twice, and Matthew Hayden.
