David Warner reaches 4,000 runs in ODI Cricket to break 27-year old Australian record
David Warner completed 4,000 runs in one day cricket in the Champions Trophy game against Bangladesh played at The Oval, London. The Australian left-handed opener became third quickest to achieve the 4,000 run landmark besides Virat Kohli of India. Warner achieved the milestone one day he reached 36 runs during his innings against Bangladesh in just 93 one day international matches. He also broke Dean Jones record of doing it in the least number of the innings. The previous best for Australian was Dean Jones who achieved the feat in just 102 innings.
Warner rich vein of form has allowed him to reach such a record as he has amassed over 1800 runs in the last one and half years and scored nine centuries to add the tally. He reached 3,000 runs in South Africa against South Africa in bilateral one day series and since then has went on the run-scoring spree to accumulate another 1,000 runs in just 12 innings since that series
