David Warner became Australia’s equal second greatest one-day international century-maker ever on Tuesday in Mumbai and the country’s fastest ever to 5000 runs in the format.
He came within a second of missing out on that achievement.

Warner was given out caught behind on five off the bowling of Shardul Thakur, with India’s instantaneous appeal and the umpire’s quick signal painting a picture of a certain dismissal.
Warner’s own reluctance to send it upstairs straight away also suggested he had probably got a feather on it.
It was only at the last available second that the left-hander sent it upstairs and it was a good thing he did, with UltraEdge confirmed the ball had missed the bat on its way to the keeper.
Warner went on to register his 18th ODI century, drawing level with Mark Waugh at No.2 on Australia’s ODI century-makers list, behind Ricky Ponting (29).
Warner’s 18 tons have come across just 115 innings, compared to Waugh’s 236.
The century also saw Warner become the fastest Australian to 5000 ODI runs in terms of innings played and fourth fastest globally.
