David Warner breaks Sachin Tendulkar’s all time ICC Cricket World Cup record
Australian opener David Warner went past former Indian batsmen Sachin Tendulkar’s all time ICC Cricket World Cup record.
David Warner has set a new record by becoming the fastest batsman to score 1000 runs in ODI World Cups, surpassing Sachin Tendulkar’s previous record. Warner accomplished this milestone while playing against India in the IND vs AUS ICC Cricket World Cup 2023 match.
India and Australia are going head-to-head in their opening match of the ICC Cricket World Cup at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. Australia, who have won the World Cup five times before, won the toss and chose to bat first in the hot conditions of Chennai. During the early part of his innings, Australian opener David Warner accomplished a significant World Cup record.
David Warner surpassed the previous record held by Sachin Tendulkar and AB de Villiers.
In the 7th over of the match, Warner reached 1000 runs by hitting a boundary off Hardik Pandya. This achievement made him the fastest batsman to reach 1000 runs in the ICC event, securing his place in the history books. Warner surpassed the previous record held by Sachin Tendulkar and AB de Villiers. Sachin and de Villiers both took 20 innings to score 1000 runs in World Cup matches, while Warner accomplished this milestone in just 19 innings.
Warner began his World Cup journey in 2015, during the tournament held in Australia and New Zealand. The left-handed batsman played a pivotal role in helping Australia win the title, accumulating 345 runs in eight matches.
In the 2019 World Cup, Warner had an outstanding performance, scoring 647 runs in 10 matches. Warner had missed international cricket for a year prior to the World Cup. He ended up being the second-highest runs scorer of the 2019 World Cup.
As he competes in his final ODI World Cup, Warner will be aiming to maintain the outstanding form he displayed in previous World Cups.
