David Warner smashes a double-century in 100th Test to join the Elite Club

David Warner smashes a double-century in 100th Test to join the Elite Club

Ace Australian batsman David Warner has stormed into the elite club list after becoming the 10th batsman to score a century in his 100th Test. He also became only the second batsman to score a double-century in a milestone test match and finally put a full stop to his three-year test drought.

Warner achieved the remarkable feat against South Africa at the ongoing Boxing Day test match at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Warner’s heroics gave Australia a stunning 197-run lead at the Stumps on Day 2 where the hosts remained unbeaten on 386/3. A breathtaking bowling display by the Kangaroos had bundled out the Proteas for 189 in their first innings.

David Warner was simply astounding in his efforts at the MCG. Smashing his 25th Century, Warner also inched another fascinating milestone and stood as only the second Australian to make it to the elite club after Ricky Ponting who smashed a couple of centuries. Former English Captain Joe Root is the only other batsman who has smashed a double-century in his 100th Test match.

David Warner becomes the eighth batter to surpass the 8000-Run Mark in Test Format

With this stupendous knock, Warner also broke another string of records. He became the second batsman in the history of cricket to hit a century in his 100th test as well as 100th ODI. Caribbean batsman Gordon Greenidge is only the other batsman to achieve this feat. He also became the eighth Australian batsman to edge past the 8000-run mark in Test cricket.

David Warner was in a sigh of relief after nearing the hundred-run total as he failed in smashing one since January 2020. He has also not been able to gather a half-century in the past 11 innings. Australia will now command in the top order ahead of their crucial test fixtures in view of the World Test Championship Final in June 2023.

Warner retired hurt due to a strain on 200*. Unfortunately, he lost the wicket of in-form batsman Marnus Labuschagne in a run-out mishap. However, Steve Smith came to the rescue and smashed a helpful 85-run knock. With serving a splendid competitive advantage, Australia will likely seize the three-match series by winning the second one itself. They already lead by 1-0.
