Brian Lara's legendary response to David Warner

Brian Lara posted the same picture on his Instagram and gave it a legendary caption of "735*". 735 is the total of Lara and Warner's highest Test scores. Fans loved the cryptic caption and did not shy away from expressing their confidence in Warner breaking Lara's record. Some fans even blamed Australian captain Tim Paine for declaring the innings prematurely. "It would have been 801 not out, if it was not for Paine's poor captaincy", one fan wrote in the comments. Australia's next match is against New Zealand as part of a three-match Test series that will begin on December 12 in Perth.
