The doubters were dismissed as David Warner made a double-century in his 100th Test match, which was against South Africa, on Boxing Day.
It was a memorable day for the 36-year- old as he became the seventh-highest run-scorer in the country’s history.
Unfortunately, Warner’s milestone has been overshadowed by negative spin.
His wife, who was a part of his celebrations, was compared to the former actress and philanthropist, Duchess of Sussex, by some people.
Following the ball-tampering incident that occurred in 2018, Warner lost his place in the Australian team’s leadership.
However, on Monday, he showed that he is still capable of playing at a high level. He was able to make a double-century during his 100th Test match.
It was a great day for Warner, as he surpassed 8,000 runs in first-class cricket and became the seventh-most prolific run-scorer of all time in the country.
His hundred on Tuesday, however, has been overshadowed by the negative spin that has been generated by external factors.
A favorable PR opportunity for Warner was lost on his wife, who was compared to the former actress, who is also known as the Duchess of Sussex.
His double-century on Monday was a fitting tribute to his legacy. It has been a difficult few years for Warner, as he lost his place in the team’s leadership and was involved in various controversies.
Some people on social media noted that the similarities between Warner and Meghan Markle. One viewer doubted if the hosts of the interview were interviewing Warner or the former actress.
“She’s obviously been watching Harry & Megs on Netflix and taking notes.”
Another added Warner’s mid-match appraisal “the most cringe thing ever” as the length of the talk went down badly with some spectators.
“Defending the indefensible and throwing David’s team-mates under the bus at the same time.”
