David Warner smashed an unbeaten 335 – his personal best – as Australia declared at 589-3 during the ongoing Pakistan Test, being held at Adelaide Oval.

The swashbuckling opener looked well on course to approach Brian Lara’s long-standing world record of 400 not out before the declaration was made, clearly in team’s interest.

At the end of end of day’s play, Warner was asked if he can think of any player who can go on to break Lara’s record. And he didn’t shy away from coming back with an honest reply.

No, it wasn’t Steve Smith or Virat Kohli; neither Joe Root or Kane Williamson.

“If I have to name one player, I reckon it could be Rohit Sharma definitely,” Warner said of the dashing Indian batsman, who is well known for his effortless big-hitting skills once he gets in.

For those unaware, Rohit is the only batsman in the world to have scored two double centuries in One-Day Internationals. His 264 not out against Sri Lanka in 2014 is the highest score by any player in the 50-over format.

Lara’s record, meanwhile, has been untouched ever since his 582-ball knock against England back in 2004.
