David Warner shatters Sachin Tendulkar’s WC record – SUCH TV

Veteran Australian opener David Warner scripted history in Australia’s World Cup 2023 opener against hosts Team India at the MA Chidambaram Stadium on Sunday.

Spearheading Australia’s batting lineup in its World Cup opener, Warner played a gritty knock although the senior Aussie batter failed to notch up his half-century. Warner creamed six fours in his 41-run knock off 52 deliveries. However, the senior batter achieved a massive feat in his first outing at the One Day International (ODI) World Cup in India.

The Aussie opener became the fastest player to complete 1,000 runs in the 50-over edition of the ICC World Cup. Warner completed the historic feat in his 19th innings.

Warner has surpassed batting legend Sachin Tendulkar and former South Africa skipper AB de Villiers as the iconic batters earlier held the joint record at the World Cup. Both Tendulkar and De Villiers achieved the feat in 20 innings. Batting icons Viv Richards and Sourav Ganguly achieved the same feat in 21 innings.

Opening the innings for the five-time champions, Warner completed the milestone in the seventh over bowled by pacer Hardik Pandya. Warner struck a boundary to complete 1000 runs at the ODI World Cup.
