Warner surpasses Bradman, becomes the 7th Aussie to score a triple ton


Australian opener David Warner followed up his century at Brisbane in the first test with a superb triple century at Adelaide as Australia declared at 589/3 in their first innings. 

Warner's 335 is now the highest test individual score and first triple century at Adelaide Oval surpassing that of Sir Donald Bradman's 299 scored way back in 1932. This is also the seventh triple century by an Australian- the most by any side. 

Earlier, Warner and Marcus Labuschagne (162) added a record 361 runs for the third wicket helping Aussies pile a mammoth score against a hapless Pakistan. 

Pakistan, responding to Australia's 589/3 d have already lost 2 early wickets with opener Imam ul Haq and captain Azhar Ali failing to even reach the double figures.  With three more days of play left and Pakistan currently trailing by 555 runs at 34-2, the match is heavily tilted in favour of Australia. 

Australia's star batsman Steve Smith also set a new record of becoming the fastest to 7,000 test runs. Smith, who had a quite test series compared to his usual heroics reached the landmark during his innings of 36.
