Warner's wife quotes Mahatma Gandhi to praise her husband

ADELAIDE: Australian opening David Warner Candice's wife used Mahatma Gandhi's words to praise her husband after he scored a record 335 against Pakistan in the second Test.

Strength does not come from physical ability. It comes from an indomitable will (Mahatma Gandhi), Candice wrote on Twitter after David's marathon entries.

It is not important what other people believe about you. Only what you believe about yourself is important, he added.

Candice was in the stands of the Adelaide Oval on Saturday when Warner scored her first triple lady. While watching an euphoric Warner celebrating in his usual style after cutting his 300 with a limit in front of Mohammad Abbas, Candice was seen wiping tears from her cheeks after David reached the milestone.

Warner's triple hundred is actually the first of an Australian since the undefeated 329 of former captain Michael Clarke against India in January 2012. Warner is also the seventh Australian to score a triple ton. The highest individual score for Australia is in the first match. Matthew Hayden with 380. He played those tickets against Zimbabwe in 2003 in Perth.

His triple ton was also the first of a left handed after Kumar Sangakkara 319 against Bangladesh in February 2014.

It is also the first time since December 2016 that any batter has managed to score a triple ton in the test cricket after Karun Nair of India did it against England in Chennai.
