Adversity brings out a beast you. It helps you dig deep, focus again and come back stronger. It helps you to have a good hard look at yourself and makes you realise what needs to be done and what fallacies you have. It kinda makes you a better individual; grounded in success and calm in failure. You learn to deal with both these facets with aplomb. In the past 18 months, no one has through such high crests and troughs of peak and nadir.
Remember that infamous Stairway brawl between Quinton de Kock and the Australian opener during that ill-fated series between South Africa and the men from Down Under? Or that sandpaper scandal in Cape Town, one that saw both Smith and Warner end up in tears after being handed a one-year ban? Warner was hounded by his critics, detractors who even prophesied that the Southpaw will never play an International in Australian colours.
Eighteen months or so later, here he was in typical Warner celebration after racking up his maiden triple century at the Adelaide Oval. Warner’s wife has been a constant support; his pillar of strength during the whole ordeal and the former model is now garnering praise for quoting Mahatma Gandhi as he congratulated her husband on Twitter.
Candice wrote, *Strength does not come from physical capacity. It comes from an indomitable will. (Mahatma Gandhi). It’s not important what other people believe about you. It’s only important what you believe about yourself,” Candice Warner tweeted along with a triple century celebration picture of David Warner.

David Warner broke all sorts of records during his marathon 335*
Coming back to Warner’s marathon knock, the swashbuckling opener continues from where he had left in Brisbane, to grind the Pakistan bowlers into the dust.
The southpaw shellacked all sorts of records while becoming the tenth highest scorer in the history of Test cricket besides also becoming Australia’s second-highest individual run-scorer where he leapfrogged former Australian captains like Michael Clarke (329), Mark Taylor (334*) and Sir Donald Bradman (334).
Warner, who had a horrendous Ashes series where he could manage just 95 runs across the ten innings looked prime to challenge Brian Lara’s all-time record of 400 but for Tim Paine who decided to declare the innings with the southpaw stranded at 335 not out.
