Warner dedicates his triple-ton to Hughes

David Warner was unstoppable during the 2nd Test match against Pakistan at the Adelaide Oval. Warner tumbled records as the left-handed batsman accumulated a mammoth 335 runs in the 1st innings making it the highest score of his Test career. 

The left-handed batsman was in the mood of breaking the world record of the highest individual score before the Australian captain declared the innings.

Warner was pretty happy with the way he performed during the Test series. He dedicated his triple-ton to his late best friend Philip Hughes, who passed away after being hit by a bouncer in November 2014.

“This win for us is a bit of memory and reflection of our mates’ life (talking about Philip Hughes). And it (his triple-century) was on his birthday as well. 

It’s always a difficult time for us. I looked up to the skies to him and every time we come here and play, we do that,” Warner said. 

Warner had special attachments with Hughes and whenever he comes to bat on the 22-yards he always remembers the late Australian batsman.

While hailing the Aussie bowlers' efforts, the 33-year-old talked admitted that fielding for two days after covering almost 21 kilometers, the equivalent of a half-marathon during his record-breaking knock 335 runs in Adelaide was tough for him.
