Australia's aggressive opener David Warner believes that Rohit Sharma of India has the ability to break the record of West Indies great Brian Lara of 400 not out in Tests. Warner scored an unbeaten 335 in his second triple century against Pakistan in the ongoing second Test here. When he was just 65 runs away from Lara's record, captain Tim Paine decided to declare the innings at a score of 589 for three.
Warner could not break this record but believes that it is possible to cross the 400-run mark and said that Rohit can achieve this feat in the near future. Lara's unbeaten 400 runs is the highest individual score in Test cricket that he scored against England in 2004. Warner said, "I think it depends on the individual player. We have a long boundary here, sometimes things get very difficult. When fatigue dominates, it becomes difficult to try hard and play big shots.
He said, 'In the end I tried to take 2 runs to accelerate because I could not think that I could get the ball across the boundary. Warner said, "I think if I have to name a player, one day Rohit Sharma can do it, definitely." Considered one of the best batsmen of ODI cricket, Rohit did not achieve much success in Test cricket initially but after returning as an opener for the recent three-match Test series against South Africa, he performed brilliantly. . In his first Test as an opener, Rohit hit a century in both innings against South Africa and was later named Man of the Series.
