David Warner made a significant achievement in the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne by surpassing former captain Steve Waugh in scoring the most runs in men's international cricket for Australia. Despite missing out on a fifty, Warner's 38-run knockoff 83 deliveries elevated his total runs to 18,502, making him the second-highest Australian run-getter, behind Ricky Ponting. Warner now exceeds Waugh (18,496 runs), Allan Border (17,698 runs), and Michael Clarke (17,112 runs) in this segment.

Warner's performance in the Boxing Day Test was notable, as he admitted to getting "a bit lazy" in his dismissal just before lunch. This acknowledgment reflects his commitment to continuous improvement and dedication to the sport.

Shafique Dropped Warner on 2 -

During the second over of Shaheen Shah Afridi's bowling, Pakistan had a great opportunity to get an early wicket. The left-arm bowled a good-length delivery that disturbed David Warner, the Australian opener edged the ball straight to Abdullah Shafique at first slip, but he dropped the catch as the ball popped out of his hands.
