David Warner, who didn’t score below hundred in his last two games, got out in the day/night Perth Test before scoring a fifty. New Zealand left-arm pacer Neil Wagner took a stunning catch of David Warner to end his innings early.
The host Australia are playing the three-match Test series against the visitors New Zealand. In the first Test match with the pink ball, Wagner took a sensational catch of Warner who was in a good mood to play another big knock. He played the low shot straight to the bowler which ended in the hand of that pacer. Wagner was on his follow-through when he stretched his right hand and picked that catch just before it could hit the turf.

Australian opener was seen moving back to the Pavilion with the disappointing look. Warner was out after scoring 43 runs which included four fours. Kiwi’s allrounder Colin de Grandhomme picked the first wicket of another Aussie opener Joe Burns, who scored nine runs.
David Warner is in his best form
In the last two test matches, David Warner was outstanding as he would have also broken the highest individual Test knock record of Brian Lara. Against Pakistan, he scored 489 runs in two Test matches. In the pink-ball game at Adelaide, he scored unbeaten 335 runs and might have scored more if the skipper Tim Paine didn’t declare that innings at early. Brian Lara’s 400 Test runs record was under threat on that day, but unfortunately, Warner could not touch that milestone.
In Ashes 2019, he was struggling in the England pitches to set himself. He lost his wickets early though the team retained the Ashes trophy by levelling that series (2-2). Then Australia played a home T20I series against Sri Lanka. Since then, Warner didn’t stop his bat in the home ground and went on scoring runs. He led the team from the front and was not out in the three-match T20I series against Sri Lanka. The 33-year-old has made a strong comeback in the game and is currently in his best form.
