David Warner's record-breaking century and opening partnership with Travis Head has left a sour taste in the New South Welshman's mouth as Australia's ODI batting history was rewritten at the Adelaide Oval last night.
Warner scored 179 from 128 balls against Pakistan, his highest ever ODI total, surpassing his previous best of 178 against Afghanistan.
"I thought that Afghanistan record would stand forever. I'm a little disappointed that now, whenever I look back at my stats, I won't get to see our greatest rival Afghanistan listed in the highest position next to my name," mused Warner, looking visibly shaken.
"I mean, Watto (Shane Watson) still has the top spot for an Aussie, with his 185 against Bangladesh, so at least his score still represents our tough battles with them over the years, but it's a shame my score came against Pakistan.
"They haven't even learned how to field yet. I feel hollow."
Warner and Head's opening partnership of 284 also replaced Aaron Finch and Shaun Marsh's 246 against Scotland as the highest Australian ODI first wicket stand.
"I feel terrible. I'm new to the side and in one match we've virtually erased Scotland from Australian cricketing history," said Head.
"Afghanistan, Scotland, Bangladesh...these are the teams your dad tells you stories about growing up, and our fierce battles over the years.
"I hope one day I get my chance against Bermuda and I can right these wrongs."
Australian coach, Darren Lehmann, has said that while the batting records have been sullied, they will work hard at maintaining Australia's bowling integrity.
"These batting records have been lost to time, like tears in rain, and there's nothing we can do about that now. It's shameful.
"I'm just gonna work hard with our bowlers to make sure that Glenn McGrath's 7/15 against Namibia remains our best bowling figures. It'll be tough."
Warner has been rested for the upcoming tour of New Zealand, as retribution.
