David Warner made sure that he scores big in the first game of the ongoing Test series against Pakistan. The opening batter brought up his 26th ton as he played a magnificent innings. The batter looked in complete touch and made sure that he’s off the flier. 

With this ton, David Warner silenced all the critics and it’s fair to say that there could’ve been no better reply than this. The batter would be hoping to double up his score and put his team on the top. With the way he is batting, it won’t be a surprise if he ends up getting a double ton. Team management would be hoping that he bats as long as possible and take teams to a big total.
