David Warner: Just like Virat Kohli’s international century ended after two and a half years.. Latest after 2 years and 10 days i.e. after a total of 1043 days, David Warner’s wait for international century also ended.
It seems that out-of-form cricketers in world cricket are having a good time. Also, the star players who are waiting for a century are also fulfilling that wish and ending their wait. First Virat Kohli and now David Warner are among them. These two star batsmen of the present era have only one problem. They are settling for half-century innings.. Currently, they are going forward by quenching their thirst for centuries. But like a few months back, Virat Kohli’s wait for an international century is over after two and a half years. Similarly now after 2 years and 10 days i.e. after a total of 1043 days the wait for David Warner’s international century is also over. David Warner achieved this feat in the third ODI against England in Melbourne.
