On Tuesday, December 27, the gifted Australian opener David Warner scored a double hundred in the ongoing second match against South Africa at the historic Melbourne Cricket Ground, breaking his three-year Test century drought.
Warner, who is also playing in his 100th Test match, has scored his 25th century in the format and surpassed 8000 runs in the longest version of the game to set a new record. In addition to these accomplishments, the southpaw was successful in accomplishing an additional extraordinary feat.
David Warner equaled Sachin Tendulkar's all-time record with a well-deserved century in his 100th Test appearance. David Warner became only the 10th player to score a century in his 100th Test appearance after scoring a ton in the ongoing MCG Test.
With a total of 45 centuries, Warner also holds the record for openers with the most centuries. He has 25 longer-format centuries and 20 ODI centuries. Sachin Tendulkar, a legendary Indian cricketer, is tied for 45 centuries. He has scored 45 of his 100 centuries as an opener.
