South Africa versus Australia: As he plays in his 100th Test, David Warner posts an emotional message. Australian opener David Warner will play in his 100th Test

David Warner of Australia has written a touching message ahead of his 100th Test on Monday against South Africa.

Warner made his debut in 2011 and has since developed into one of the industry’s best.

In the Boxing Day Test against South Africa at the storied Melbourne Cricket Ground, he will accomplish the feat.

In the longest format, Warner is 78 runs short of 8,000.

He also has a chance of becoming the fifth fastest Australian to reach the milestone in Tests.

We translate his details.

Why is this story important?

One of the best batters of his generation has been Warner.

He is one of Australia’s faithful servants and has a penchant for runs unlike any other in the conditions of Australia.

It is a huge accomplishment for a cricketer of Warner’s caliber to play in his 100th Test match.

At the MCG, the southpaw will try to make it one to remember.

A look at Warner’s Test career Warner made his debut at the Gabba in 2011 against New Zealand.

Since then, he has scored 7,922 runs in 99 Test matches (182 innings). 45.52 is his average. He has scored 34 fiftyes and 24 hundreds.

In 2022, Warner has not yet scored a lot

At 20.61, he has scored 371 runs (50s: 2). His five most recent hits were 3, 0, 28, 21, and 48.

Warner wants to score 5,000 runs in home Tests. In home Tests, his average is a remarkable 57.31.

He has scored 4,929 runs in 53 matches. He has criticized 14 half-centuries and 18 centuries. In Australia, he is 71 runs short of completing 5,000 Test runs.

After Ricky Ponting (7,578), Allan Border (5,743), Steve Waugh (5,710), and Matthew Hayden (5,210), he will become only the fifth batter from Australia to accomplish this feat.

Warner wants to make history If he scores a hundred in his 100th Test match, he can make history.

He will be the tenth batter to accomplish this in Test cricket history

After Ponting (120 and 143* vs. South Africa, 2006), Warner will become the second Australian to accomplish this feat.

In his 100th Test, Ponting is still the only player to score two tons.

Warner, the fifth-fastest Australian to score 8,000 Test runs (7,922) will become the eighth Australian to do so.

To become the fifth fastest Australian with 8,000 Test runs, behind Steve Smith (151), Hayden (164), Ponting (165), and Michael Clarke (172), Warner (182 innings) needs 78 runs in the next inning.

He can surpass Border’s record of 184 innings. Smith is unquestionably the fastest person to ever accomplish this feat.

Warner has a triple-century in his possession

In November 2019, Warner turned into the seventh Australian hitter to enlist a triple-century in Test cricket.

In Adelaide, he accomplished the feat against Pakistan (335*).

After Hayden’s 380 (against Zimbabwe, 2003), he holds the record for the second-highest Test score by an Australian.
