David Warner scores second double ton in Test

ANI  |  Cricket 

Australian opener David Warner scored his second double century in Test cricket while playing against Pakistan on day two of the pink ball test on Saturday.

The left-handed batsman reached the milestone by guiding the ball towards short fine leg off Shaheen Afridi's delivery.

Earlier, Australia's Marnus Labuschagne became the leading run-scorer in Tests in 2019.

The right-handed batsman went on to score 162 runs in the first innings of the day-night Test and as a result, took his tally in 2019 to 829 runs.

Yesterday, Warner and Labuschagne guided Australia to a dominating position by registering an unbeaten stand of 294 runs.

The team from Down Under has a remarkable record in pink-ball Tests as they have won all their five matches which have been played in the day-night format.
