I always think Phil is at the other end with me: David Warner

By Nilabh Aole -

On Tuesday, Australia's opener David Warner has created history on Day 1 of the third Test match against the Pakistan. He went on to complete a century before the lunch on the first day of a test match and he became one of the few players to achieve this milestone.

However, Warner's celebration was emotionally charged and he had a message for those who called his celebration a bit too over the top. Speaking after the end of day's play, he justified that the celebration was done in the loving memory of his dearest friend Phil Hughes.

Talking about Hughes, Warner said, “Before every time I walk out here we’ve got our little mate walking with us and always in the back of my mind when I walk out here, he’s with me. I always think he’s at the other end with me. Every time I score runs here or score a hundred, it’s always for him."

Warner concluded by talking about the day's play, he said, "Today was more about the ball not swinging. Mohammad Amir pitched one up and it swung and seamed away from me and from there it didn’t swing. From there I felt I could go a little bit harder and take them on a bit.”
