Virender Sehwag picks his favorite David Warner Test innings, it’s 180 vs India at Perth

David Warner is currently playing his last Test against Pakistan, at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

There are a few batsmen around the world, who played Test cricket, like they were playing ODIs, and yet were mighty successful at it. The first names that come to mind, when we talk about swashbuckling Test openers are, India’s Virender Sehwag and Australia’s Virender Sehwag. Talking about David Warner’s retirement to Cricbuzz, Sehwag remembered his favourite innings of Warner.

He spoke about the match-winning 180 Warner made at Perth in 2011. In just 159 balls, the southpaw changed the course of the match, and handed the win to Australia. His innings included 20 fours and five sixes, and the Indian bowlers were taken to the cleaners.

Sehwag said, “It has to be that 180 he made at the WACA against us in 2011. It was outstanding batting and he’d made the century by the tea-break and also finished the match off single-handedly by then. It was also an innings that summed up David Warner the Test batter, the ability to finish the game off like that and so quickly and what he’s gone on to achieve is very special.”

Meanwhile, India had lost that match by an innings and 37 runs as the visitors were bundled out for 161 & 171 in both the innings.
