David Warner’s name registered in the record book after his velocious ton against Pakistan

After more than 40 years someone has scored a century before lunch on the first day of a test match.

David Warner became the latest to join Victor Trumper, Charles Macartney, Don Bradman and Majid Khan to achieve this feat.

Warner is the first individual to score 100 or more runs in the first session on any day of a Test in Australia. Previous highest was of Clive Lloyd’s who scored 98 at WACA in the first session of the third day in 1975-76.

Warner completed the century in 78 balls, fastest by any player in SCG history. The previous record was off 82 balls set by himself in the last New Year Test against West Indies.

This is Warner’s second fastest test century after the century against India in just 69 balls at WACA. Overall, this is the fourth-fastest century among Australia batsmen.

He started off with a four and ended up making history. Warner is the first batsman to achieve the feat since Pakistan’s Majid Khan preyed on New Zealand in Karachi in October 1976.

“I wasn’t aware of the stats … it’s obviously an honor and a privilege to be among those greats,” – Warner said.

“I told the youngster (Renshaw) that with a couple of minutes to go we had to knuckle down, get through to lunch … (but then) the adrenaline was pumping.”

Warner celebrated wildly in the final over before the meal break, having scampered back for a third run to complete his 18th Test ton, but lamented his caught-behind dismissal on 113.

“I did get greedy,” he said.

The 20-year-old (Renshaw)  scored a single run in the same time it took his vice-captain to score 38 of them, and the youngest member of the side was on 21 when Warner was 100.

“That first session was a bit of a whirlwind. Davey was absolutely smoking them and I was sort of trudging along,” Renshaw said.

“That’s probably the first time I’ve been booed and cheered for blocking the ball in the same over.

Warner appreciated Renshaw for his performance, he said- “He’s a young kid. To be 167 not out and bat through a whole day is fantastic … he’s got a bright future ahead of him.”
