Australian team opener David Warner scored his first triple century of his career. Warner played an unbeaten 335 * off 418 balls in the Australia-Pakistan second Test at the Adelaide Oval ground.
Had Australian captain Tim Paine not declared an innings at a score of 589/3, Warner would have had a great chance to break Brian Lara's 400 * run world record. Even though Warner may not have broken the 400-run record, he has been included in the list of batsmen who have the record of playing the biggest innings in Test cricket without being named.
The world record of playing the greatest innings while being unbeaten in the Test is recorded in the name of Brian Lara. Lara scored an unbeaten 400 * off 582 balls against England on 10 April 2004.
400 * - Brian Lara 365 * - Gary Sobers 336 * - Walter Hammond 335 * - David Warner. Brian Lara is followed by Gary Sobers, Walter Hammond, David Warner in second, third and fourth place respectively.
