A splendid knock weaved with some magic, technique and a brilliant skill set. Australia's ace batsman, David Warner, in yet another match, put up a tremendous show as he notched up a triple century in the second Test against Pakistan at Adelaide. Warner breached the 300-mark on the second day, as he went on to become the seventh batsman to score a triple century.

Warner remained not out at 335 before Australia captain Tim Paine decided to declare the innings at 589 disallowing Warner to continue his spectacular scoring spree, which fumed the Australian fans.
