Cashing in on conducive batting conditions and an ill-disciplined Pakistan bowling line-up, Warner remained unbeaten on 335 in Adelaide to go past the iconic number of 334 in Australian cricket, breaking the record of both Don Bradman and Mark Taylor.

David Warner had managed only 95 runs at an average of 9.50 in the Ashes and despite dishing out consistent performances in the T20I series against Sri Lanka and Pakistan, he was under pressure before the start of the Test series against Pakistan.

All those fears were laid to rest when the opener combined with Joe Burns for a 222-run partnership in Australia's 1st innings of the Brisbane Test. Warner went on to score 154 runs to return to form in style in Test cricket.

The Aussie further capitalised on conducive batting conditions and a poor Pakistan bowling line-up to remain unbeaten on 335 in Adelaide. With it, he went past the iconic number of 334 in Australian cricket and broke the record of both Don Bradman and Mark Taylor on the way to become the the man with the second highest top score for Australia in Tests.

Warner was averaging under 25 in Tests in 2019. With this triple century, he has now taken that average close to 55.

The opener will have three more Test matches on home soil against New Zealand to further capitalise on his magical form.
