Warner equals Virat Kohli and Colin Munro:

David Warner shined in Australia's 3-0 whitewash of Sri Lanka. The southpaw hit 217 runs and remained not out throughout the series. This wonderful display of batting made Warner the first-ever opener to remain unbeaten in all 3 T20Is of a 3-match series. David Warner also became only the third batsman in international cricket to score the fifties in all three matches of a bilateral T20I series after Virat Kohli and Colin Munro. Virat Kohli had scored an unbeaten 90, 59 not out, and 50 as he became the first batsman to do so during India's tour of Australia in 2015-16. Colin Munro was the second to achieve this landmark when he hit 53, 66 and 104 against West Indies in 2017-18.
