David Warner made history recently as he registered the tenth-highest Test score of all time with his epic triple century. Warner’s imperious 335 not out is the second-highest score by an Australian in an innings as he is only behind Matthew Hayden’s 380.
While Warner’s blistering batting heroics garnered praise from all sections of the cricket fraternity, there was some debate over Australia skipper Tim Paine’s decision to declare right when Warner was looking fully set and could possibly go on to break Brian Lara’s record of 400.
When asked about which batsman could potentially surpass the Caribbean legend’s astronomical score, Warner predicted India’s batting maestro Rohit Sharma had the firepower to overtake Lara. "I think, one day, if I've to name a player, I reckon it could be Rohit Sharma definitely," Warner was quoted as saying.
Rohit, who already has three double centuries in ODIs, has only recently rejuvenated his Test career and amassed a plethora of runs during the home series against South Africa.
