Fastest Australian batsmen to 10 Test Hundreds: Test Cricket is inarguably the best format of cricket to be played ever. It tests the patience of the players, puts their skills to test and is a measure of how good you really are. Any player who makes his debut will say, he wants to be known as a better test cricketer than being known just as a limited overs cricketer. In Test Cricket, batsmen play a major role compared to the bowlers. The extent to which a batsman has done well can be understood by the number of centuries scored. Batting in test cricket is a specialist’s job. You don’t score centuries in test cricket unless you have got the requisite skill. There are players who have done exceptionally well in limited over’s but failed to put their mark in the biggest format of the game.
Batting in test cricket is an art, you have to set yourself in and find time to get in consensus with the pitch before you can start playing your shots. If you are a batsman who has made your debut for the national team, you will start making short-term goals. Getting your first hundred is always special, but what about getting ten hundreds ? Yesterday, David Warner of Australia scored his 10th test hundred against India. Let us see how does he fare in the all-time list for Australian batsmen who have scored 10 test hundreds in fewer innings.
6. DAVID WARNER (AUSTRALIA) – 61 INNINGS
David Warner completes the list of the top 6 batsmen at 6th position. Warner started off, unlike other batsmen as a T20 player, went on to do well in limited over’s and then started his hunt for runs in test cricket. In 2014, he has accumulated more than 900 runs which shows he is one of the reasons why Australia is doing well. He took the helm of affairs from Hayden as the opener after his retirement from all forms. David Warner started to do well, after he took advice from his mentor and former India player Virender Sehwag urged the swash buckling batsman can do well in the longer format as well. Warner scores 75 runs every 100 balls. When opening batsmen around the world find it hard enough to score, here is an opener who has scored heavily against best of the bowling attacks literally tearing them apart !
