Australia's veteran opener David Warner hit a century on Tuesday against South Africa in his 100th Test to snap a near-three-year drought as he bounced back to his best at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. En route to three figures, the 36-year-old passed 8,000 Test runs -- the eighth Australian to do so -- after coming into the game under pressure after a lean run. It was his first Test century since January 2020 as he proved the doubters wrong with an aggressive 144-ball knock, hitting eight fours, on day two of the second Test.
He brought up his 25th century with a boundary, punching the air in celebration.
Here is how the Twitter reacted to Warner's century:
One of the greatest openers of our times! So a century for David Warner in his 100th test! As Sehwag predicted in 2010 IIRC, David Warner would be a way better test batsman than a limited overs batsman, what prophecy! #DavidWarner #AUSvsSA— Made in Thane Mobile Factory (@AichyagavatRaga) December 27, 2022

Superb knock by David Warner.— Waiyullah Budye (@WasiyullahB) December 27, 2022
Warner had insisted before the match that "you're never out of form".
"They're not the words that I use and they're definitely not used in our change rooms," he said. "It's about (being) out of runs."
