Batsman David Warner revealed that he attributed his maiden Test century to his late grandfather who inspired the southpaw to chase the baggy green.

Frank Warner inspired the young Warner to strive hard for a Test career even as he battled for life. “When he passed away... it took a lot of courage for me to say, ‘Right, I’m going to keep aspiring to play cricket for my country,” said Warner.
