During the match, he also scored 335 runs, nearly breaking a world record.
David Warner, Australia’s left-handed opener, made the history books while nearly breaking a long-standing record. During his time at-bat, he nearly covered 21 kilometres during the first two days of the 2nd Adelaide day/night Test. He also nearly broke several records before Tim Paine declared at a score of 589 runs.
At 33 years old, he scored his best score yet and scored an unbeaten 335 runs. He also broke Sir Don Bradman’s record and grabbed the second spot on Australia’s all-time highest run-scorer in an innings. His performance earned him a standing ovation from the crowd. Their opponents, on the other hand, weren’t really happy. The Pakistani bowlers tried their best to contain Warner but failed.
After a record performance, Warner said that he is proud of his fitness which helped him spend a long time on the wicket. He said that when he isn’t playing cricket, he’s either on the treadmill or walking on the costal.
‘I pride myself on my fitness. Warner was quoted by cricket.com.au as saying on Saturday. If I’m away from the game and not in the nets, I’m either on the treadmill or running the coastal walk. My wife is always getting me out of the house and making sure I’m walking. I walk every day here before games. I just love being outdoors’, said Warner during an interview.
‘We’ve got three young kids so we’re always going to be up early, but we make sure we make time for fitness and I really enjoy that. There’s a lot of hard work that has gone into it’.
