Yesterday, David Warner scored his first triple century in test cricket. He was unbeaten on 335 runs when Australia declared their first inning against Pakistan. David Warner may break Brian Lara’s 400 runs record in test cricket if Australia didn’t declare their inning.
Now David Warner names that player who can break Brian Lara’s 400 runs record in test cricket. On the question of Who do you think will go past Lara’s feat? “I think, one day, if I’ve to name a player, I reckon it could be Rohit Sharma. Definitely,” said Warner.
“When I met Virender Sehwag while playing for Delhi in the IPL, he sat down to me and said I will be a better Test player than a Twenty 20 player. I said ‘you’re out of your mind, I’ve not played many first-class games’,” Warner said.

“He always said ‘they will have slips and gully, covers open, mid-wicket stay there. mid-off and mid-on will be up, you can get off to a flier and sit there all day and you’ll be picking them all off’.
“That’s always stuck in my mind, it sounded very easy when we were discussing then.”
“Never, never (thought of quitting Test after Ashes). At the end of the day, you’re going to have people who are going to doubt you. Through that whole campaign (Ashes), I always said I wasn’t out of form, I was out of runs,” Warner said.
“This is not something from hindsight, if I had my time again, I wouldn’t have not changed my guard, not listened to some external noises, backed myself more. I am capable of that. I have had to regroup coming back from England. I probably faced 3.500 or 4,000 balls at the nets leading into Brisbane. Obviously here as well.
