Australia v Pakistan: Record-breaking day with David Warner 'surreal', says Marnus Labuschagne

  Australia v Pakistan: Record-breaking day with David Warner 'surreal', says Marnus Labuschagne After making an unbroken 294 alongside David Warner, Australia's Marnus Labuschagne described his time at the crease as "real fun".Warner and Labuschagne each recorded hundreds in the first Test, when Australia won by an innings and five runs, and the two continued their fine form with an unbeaten second-wicket stand of 294 in Adelaide on Friday.

David Warner has gone from not being able to buy a run to scoring a record -breaking amount of them. Warner went past Don Bradman ’ s highest ever score (334) and also “People don ’t realise how much heartache (there is) when you’re going through a tough trot and a bad time – on or off field.

Serious questions are being asked about the legitimacy of David Warner's record breaking score in Australia's first innings against Pakistan in Adelaide over the weekend.

Warner recorded the highest ever score at Adelaide Oval, and surpassed Don Bradman's highest score by one run when captain Tim Paine declared with the opener on 335.

The monster innings is second only to Matthew Hayden's 380 against Zimbabwe.

But, new footage is casting shadows on the remarkable feat.

A Fox Sports video shows Warner taking off for a run after tucking a ball towards the third man boundary.

A close study of the footage shows Warner swinging his foot over the crease at the non-striker's end, but not grounding it.

He then returns to the striker's end and two runs was recorded.

But the rules of the game state that Warner should have been pulled up for a short run.

“I am staggered by that… I can’t believe it,” journalist Robert 'Crash' Craddock said on Fox Sports.

Although the footage of the alleged short run has gone viral, there's little doubt Warner would have surpassed Bradman's milestone anyway.

The left-hander was doing it easy on the second day of the Test, and Paine was seemingly happy to wait until he reached the score before declaring.

On Twitter, opinion was slanted heavily in Warner's favour, with many saying the incident was overblown.
