Watch video: David Warner gifts helmet to kid after triple ton, older boys take it away
David Warner scored the second-highest individual score by an Australian batsman in Test history
David Warner recently hit his first triple hundred in Test cricket at the ongoing match between Australia and Pakistan at the Adelaide Oval on Saturday. David Warner struck an unbeaten 335 runs to put the home team in control against Pakistan. As Australia declared at 589/3, David Warner missed out on a probable opportunity to overtake Brian Lara's highest test score of 400 runs.
David Warner then went on to signal a good gesture as he proceeded to present his cricket fans with a wonderful gift - his helmet and gloves. In a video that went viral online, a boy who managed to get hold of Warner's helmet was later bullied by other older boys as they took away the helmet leaving the kid heartbroken. On the other hand, a young girl managed to get hold of the gloves. Wath the video below.

And well done the girl not letting that boy in the striped shirt swipe the gloves from her! #AUSvPAK pic.twitter.com/C1aIzGr3BY
En route to his unbeaten 335, David Warner went on to overtake Don Bradman's overall test runs of 6,996 and became Australia's 11th highest run-scorer in Test cricket.
