David Warner, who scored a record-breaking unbeaten 335 against Pakistan as of late, got together with West Indies legend Brian Lara on Wednesday and expectations he will one dawn the veteran’s record of having scored the most number of runs in a solitary innings of a Test coordinate.
The Australian opener posted a photograph with Lara, with the inscription saying, “Incredible to get up to speed with the legend himself. Perhaps one day I will get another opportunity to Knock 400 off. @brianlaraofficial”.
Warner scored 335 against Pakistan in the second Test at Adelaide Oval on Saturday, from only 418 balls, hitting a great 39 limits and a most extreme. Despite the fact that he broke Donald Bradman’s record, he couldn’t get a turn breaking Matthew Hayden’s 381 or Brian Lara’s 400*, as commander Tim Paine chose to proclaim the innings for 589/3.
The whole cricketing brotherhood thought about whether the southpaw could break the record 400-run figure, however it was not intended to be. Indeed, even the record-holding West Indies legend himself was preparing to meet Warner on Saturday.
“It would have been astonishing to exit there [as Sobers did]. Records are made to be broken. It’s extraordinary when they are broken by assaulting players. Performers. Being in Adelaide I would have a chance to if not exit in any event meet him at this advantageous time,” Lara was cited as saying by News Corp.
The 50-year-old previous West Indies commander has broken the record of most noteworthy individual Test score twice — first when he surpassed comrade Gary Sobers’ 36-year-old record of 365 by scoring 375 against England in 1994, and afterward again when he bettered his own record to arrive at 400 against England again in 2004.
“Regardless I figure Warner may have the opportunity to do it in his profession. I realize he isn’t a spring chicken however when you get that 300 you realize how to get 400. He may get another took shots at it.”
Warner went past Don Bradman and Mark Taylor’s top scores of 334 to sit second behind Hayden as the second most noteworthy ever score by an Australian.
“In the wake of passing Sir Donald Bradman I would have wanted to see him race towards me. I was getting dressed to return close to the finish of his innings. I was tuning in to analysts say whether he would have a go at Matthew Hayden’s 380, yet I felt on the off chance that he got to 381 he would must have a go at my record,” said Lara.
Warner, then again, accepts that India opener Rohit Sharma, who holds the record of the most noteworthy individual score in ODIs, can in the long run break Lara’s record in Test cricket.
“I think, at some point, on the off chance that I’ve to name a player, I figure it could be Rohit Sharma. Unquestionably,” said Warner to Fox Sports.
