By: Babita Singh


David Warner made history as the first Australian cricketer to achieve a significant World Cup milestone, joining the elite club alongside Sachin Tendulkar and Rohit Sharma.

In the ICC World Cup 2023 semi-final against South Africa, David Warner, Australia's leading run-scorer, reached the 'Mount 500' for the second time, despite a less impressive performance.

Batting with a strike rate of 161.11, Warner scored 29 off 18 balls in the semi-final, contributing to his overall tally of 528 runs in 10 matches at the ICC World Cup 2023.

Warner is only the third player, after Sachin Tendulkar and Rohit Sharma, to achieve the feat of scoring 500 or more runs in two different World Cup editions.

Alongside cricket legends like Ricky Ponting, Matthew Hayden, and Aaron Finch, Warner joins the exclusive list of Australian players who have scored 500 or more runs in a single World Cup edition.

The 36-year-old Indian opener, Rohit Sharma, has also achieved the milestone of scoring more than 500 runs in two World Cup campaigns, in 2019 and 2023.

The winner of ICC World Cup 2023 semi-final, South Africa vs Australia, to clash with India in final at Narendra Modi Stadium; Warner's pivotal role crucial for Australia's success.
