Australian opener David Warner‘s knock in the second Test match against Pakistan at Adelaide was a show-stealer. The player registered his first triple century in the Test cricket. He also became the first Australian batsman to score 300 runs under the light.
The southpaw was unbeaten in the Adelaide ground. He showed the patience to play the longest format by adding 335* runs in the scoreboard of Australia. He set a good partnership with Marnus Labuchgane who scored 162 runs. Then, he also managed good partnerships with Steve Smith and Mathew Wade. Though his non-strikers lost their wickets, Warner didn’t stop scoring runs. The opener struck 39 fours and a six in the first innings of the Adelaide Test match.
In the home Test series against Pakistan, Australia was already in lead with 1-0 after registering the win in the first Test match. In Brisbane, Warner scored 154 runs where he faced 296 balls. The debutant Naseem Shah picked the wicket of the opener adding the first wicket in his tally.
After a one year long break in his career, Ashes 2019 was Warner’s comeback Test series where he just scored 95 runs in the five matches. But the recent Test series against Pakistan can be said his real come back where the player strongly stood for his team in both the Test matches.
I haven’t really thought about it yet – David Warner about his retirement
In the interview, Warner, who has played 81 Test matches with 23 Test centuries in his name, opined about his future in the cricket. The player opined that he has not given any thought to his future plans. He has clarified that he will think about it after the next year’s T20 World Cup.
“I haven’t really thought about it yet but I think when you play Test cricket, it’s obviously less taxing on your legs unless you’re out there all day like that,” Warner said
“I haven’t really put any thought into what I’ll do first, whether I give away T20 internationals to free up some time for the Test matches.
“I think that’ll probably come around the corner after next year’s World Cup. I might have to think about it. There’s a World Cup six months after that as well.
“Something’s got to give. It’s also an opportunity for a youngster to come through. We’ve got great depth in Australian cricket,” he added.
