Even after 6 years of its existence, the knock is still unbeaten and remains the highest individual score in T20s.

David Warner is one of the most fearless batsmen of world cricket. His gallant efforts and rock-solid gameplay has earned him a lot of success in his career. The top-class player is one of the finest openers in all three formats of the game.

However, when the one-year suspension was enforced on him as well as his teammate Steve Smith, people thought that the guy might lose his Midas touch. Nevertheless, he has returned back quite strongly after the uplifting of the ban. In the recently-concluded ICC Cricket World Cup, he was the second-highest run-scorer with 648 runs in his kitty. He also scored a total of 3 centuries in the tourney.

In the shortest format of the game, Warner has recently struck a daddy hundred which has grabbed the eyes of the cricketing pundits from all around the globe. In the first T20 game of the series against Sri Lanka, the Aussie opener went on to play a 100-run knock in just 56 balls.

He jackhammered a total of 10 fours and 4 sixes and eventually helped his team to post a mammoth total of 233 runs in 20 overs. This scintillating knock earned Warner lots of praises and if he continues to play with such versatility, it will certainly not be shocking if he goes on to surpass Chris Gayle’s 175-run-mark.
