Warner scores triple century, wife praises him in unique wayLast updated on Dec 02, 2019, 03:45 pm
Swashbuckling Australian opener David Warner sent cricket fans crazy with a blistering triple century in the second Test (Day-Night) against Pakistan in Adelaide on Saturday.
As the world praised him for his terrific knock, his wife too did the same.
However, what was notable about her is that she referenced great Indian leader Mahatma Gandhi during the praise.
Here is how.
Do you know?
Candice Warner quotes Gandhi to praise Warner's thunderous knock
"Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will. (Mahatma Gandhi). It's not important what other people believe about you. It's only important what you believe about yourself," quoted Warner's wife Candice in a post on Twitter, praising him.

Warner shatters records with maiden Test triple ton
Warner shattered a number of records with his triple ton:
He is the first triple centurion in Day-Night Tests for Australia.
He is the highest run-scorer in Day-Night Tests.
He has become the highest run-scorer in a Test innings in Adelaide.
He is also the third batsman to have scored 400 runs in Day-Night Tests.
He is the sixth opener with multiple 250-plus scores.
Warner credits Virender Sehwag for his Test success
Warner has had tremendous success in the series against Pakistan.
Speaking on the same, Warner credited former Indian opener Virender Sehwag, who had encouraged him during his IPL stint with Delhi Daredevils (DD), by saying that he would become a better Test player than a T20 player.
"I said 'you're out of your mind, I've not played many First-Class games'," Warner had wondered.
Point to prove
Warner has a point to prove following return from suspension
It is to be noted that Warner is made his return to international cricket this year following a one-year suspension, owing to his involvement in the ball-tampering scandal during the Cape Town Test last year.
He is playing his first Test series at home since then, as he handed Aussies a terrific win.
Furthermore, he failed to fire in the Ashes 2019.
How did the second Test match pan out?
Australia batted first and scored immensely to declare at 589/3.
Warner (335*) was the master in batting.
He was supported by centurion Marnus Labuschagne (162).
The two shared a match-winning 361-run stand for the second wicket.
In reply, Pakistan were helped by Babar Azam (97) and Yasir Shah (113) to post 302.
Mitchell Starc (6/66) was top notch.
Pakistan failed in the second innings.
