Warner picks Rohit to break Lara�s 400 not out Test record

By The Assam Tribune

ADELAIDE, Dec 1: Dashing Australian opener David Warner believes India�s Rohit Sharma has the firepower to surpass West Indies great Brian Lara�s record 400 not out in a Test match.

Warner, who scored his maiden triple ton (335) in five-day cricket during the ongoing second Test against Pakistan here, was just 65 runs shy of breaking Lara�s record when skipper Tim Paine decided to declare the innings at 589/3.

Though he couldn�t break the record, Warner believes it is possible to surpass the 400-mark and backed Rohit to achieve the feat in near future. Lara�s 400 not out is the highest individual score in Test cricket which came against England in 2004.

�Yeah, look, I think it�s about the person himself. We�ve got long boundaries, it is quite difficult at times. When fatigue sets in, it�s very hard to try hard and throw your hands at it,� Warner told �Fox Sports�.

�At the end, I tried to run twos to lift the ante because I couldn�t actually think like I could clear the ropes.

�I think, one day, if I�ve to name a player, I reckon it could be Rohit Sharma. Definitely.� � PTI
