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.

  From a bare North Sydney Oval to a packed MCG, it's been a huge 10 years for the women's game With the Women's T20 World Cup 100 days away, it's remarkable how much coverage and support for the sport has grown since 2009.But 100 days out from the March 8 final, it proves how far the game has come to think it is an achievable goal.

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.
