David Warner was given an early life by Pakistan after the visitors chose to bowl first in the Boxing Day Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Tuesday, which allowed the veteran opener to go past Steve Waugh’s record to become Australia‘s second best run-scorer in men’s cricket.

The chance allowed Warner to go past former Australia skipper Steve Waugh’s record of 18,496 international runs before being dismissed by off-spinner Agha Salman for an uncharacteristic 38 off 83 balls at the stroke of lunch.

Former Pakistan skipper Babar Azam took a sharp catch at first slip as Warner went after a ball delivered wide of the off-stump by Agha.

Warner added 90 runs for the opening wicket with Usman Khawaja, who was later dismissed after a laborious knock of 42 runs off 101 balls.
Warner’s tally of international runs now stands at 18,502 runs in 460 innings, which places him second in the list of all-time Australian run-getters led by Ricky Ponting’s tally of a mammoth 27,368 runs across formats in international cricket.
