Australian opener David Warner completed 5,000 runs in Test cricket, against Pakistan on Day Three of the second Test, at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). Warner scored his 23rd half-century from 55 deliveries. The attacking southpaw became only the sixth fastest (overall) and 19th Australian to reach the mark. In his 109th innings, Warner overtook the likes Ricky Ponting, Allan Border, Michael Clarke, Adam Gilchrist, Steve Waugh and Mark Waugh. Warner averages 47.58 inclusive of 16 hundred.

Australia legend Sir Don Bradman leads the list, for he reached 5,000 runs in just 56 innings, followed by Matthew Hayden (95 innings). The list also features Neil Harvey (105), Greg Chappell (106), and Mike Hussey (107). Former Australia captain Ponting (110) took only an innings more than Warner. However, Australia are in the pursuit of Pakistan’s 443 in the first innings. Opener Azhar Ali scored a scintillating double-hundred, remaining unbeaten on 205.
