David Warner is believed to be playing his last Test series for his country. In the very first test match, David Warner had scored a century against Pakistan and due to this, Australia defeated Pakistan by a huge margin of 360 runs. Now the second test match has started. In this match, Pakistan captain Shan Masood won the toss and asked Australia to bat first. Once again Australian openers David Warner and Usman Khawaja gave a good start to their team. However, before the team’s score could cross 100, David Warner was out. At that time the total score of the team was 90 runs. David Warner faced 83 balls and scored 38 runs during this period. David Warner may not have been able to score very big, but it is certain that he has overtaken his own country’s former captain Steve Waugh in terms of scoring the most runs in international cricket.
