Australian batsman David Warner has made history on the Adelaide ground in the second Test match against Pakistan. Warner has become the first batsman to score 300 runs at Adelaide Oval Stadium. With this, Warner has broken the record of 299 not out on the same ground of former veteran Sir Donald Bradman.
Warner hit 335 off 418 balls, which is the second highest personal score made by an Australian batsman in Test cricket. Warner has surpassed former players Mark Taylor and Bradman, who played unbeaten innings of 334–334 runs in their Test careers. However, Matthew Hayden still tops the list with 380 runs against Zimbabwe.
On the second day of the match, Warner scored the first four of his Test career and the second triple century of the day-night format in the 120th over with the first ball of Mohammad Abbas. Warner is the seventh batsman to score a triple century in Test cricket for Australia. Bradman, Hayden, Taylor along with Michael Clarke, Bob Simpson, Ball Power have done these feats before them.
The score of 335 against Pakistan in Adelaide is not only the highest personal score of Warner's career but also the highest personal score of any batsman in day-night Test cricket. Warner has surpassed the score of 302 * scored by Pakistani captain Azhar Ali.
This is the fourth time in Adelaide when a player has scored more than 300 runs against the Pakistan team. Warner celebrated his triple century by leaping into the air in his signature style. He then picked up his bat and remembered the late accompanying player Philippe Hughes and then greeted the spectators present at the stadium.
