Warner, who became the 14th cricketer to play 100 Test matches for Australia, also returned to form by scoring a century. This is his first century in Test matches since January 2020. He was also able to score zero and three runs in the first match against South Africa in Brisbane.

Melbourne: David Warner returned to form with a memorable century in his 100th Test match as Australia took an early lead over South Africa in the first innings of the second Test. Australia have scored 231 runs for two wickets till the tea break on the second day here on Tuesday. At that time Warner was playing on 135 and Steve Smith was on 60 runs. In this way, Australia has achieved a lead of 42 runs over South Africa. South Africa had scored 189 runs in their first innings.

Warner, who became the 14th cricketer to play 100 Test matches for Australia, also returned to form by scoring a century. This is his first century in Test matches since January 2020. He was also able to score zero and three runs in the first match against South Africa in Brisbane. Australia started playing ahead of 45 runs for one wicket in the morning. Warner was on 47 when he was hit on the helmet by a bouncer from fast bowler Anrich Norkia and had to be taken to the doctors.

This stopped the game for a long time. Marnus Labushen (14) was run out just two balls after the start of the game. This reduced Australia’s score to 75 for two, after which Warner and Smith handled the responsibility well. Warner also completed 8000 runs in Test cricket as soon as he completed his 81st run. He is the eighth Australian batsman to achieve this feat.
