RECORD: Five Cricketers Who Have Scored Pre-Lunch Centuries On Day One In Test Cricket
The Australian dasher David Warner, who goes by nickname ‘Llyod’ has become the prime focus of sports news outlets across the cricket crazy globe after setting a unique record in 140 years of Australian Test cricket before making his name into the history books while joining the group of elite cricketers.
He has been sensational with the bat since he emerged into international scene following his brash attitude.
Warner has been in the aggressive mood with willow after critics doubted his Test career, but he managed himself well before giving them a thumping response with his brilliant performances in the longer format of the game.
Playing his first Test of 2017 season, David Warner became the first cricketer from Australia to reach the hundred before lunch on day one in a game in Australia which has made his 113 knocks incredible, to say the least.
An explosive Indian opener Virender Sehwag missed the triple-figure mark by 1 run as it was the lunch time in St. Lucia in 2006 against West Indies. Warner became the first player in 40-odd years since Pakistan’s Majid Khan notched a century in the first Test session on day one.
The confident Warner has scored his 18th Test century following the overall bleak performance in 2016 to silence the critics.
After scoring his record setting hundred 100 of 78 deliveries Warner raised his bat in his trademark style to become the fourth Australian and fifth overall to ever score a century in the first session of a Test as he went after insipid Pakistan bowling attack at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
Take a look at the list of five who have made a first session century on day one in Test cricket which includes three centuries against England:
