Australian opener David Warner was close to breaking the record for the most runs scored by Brian Lara of West Indies in Test cricket in an innings, but Warner missed out on creating history as captain Tim Paine declared the innings. Lara was a little disappointed that Warner was deprived of breaking his record. Brian Lara holds the record for the highest individual score in a Test. He scored 400 runs in an innings of the Test. Warner was moving towards Lara's record by scoring 335 runs in the second match against Pakistan that Penn announced the end of the innings.

Lara was in Adelaide in connection with an advertisement that day (Saturday) and was waiting for Warner to break his record. News Corp quoted Lara as saying, "That was a great innings." I can understand that it is a big thing for Australia to win the match and the weather is very important, but if Australia goes ahead, I would have liked it. I would have loved to have seen this here. If he says, David you have 12 overs. Let's see if you can do this till tea time .. It would have been wonderful.
