The star batsman had gifted the unique souvenir to a boy in the crowd
The boy, who received the helmet worn by Australia’s batsman David Warner during his historic unbeaten 335 against Pakistan in the second and last Test at the Adelaide Oval in Adelaide, has decided to donate his prized possession to the soon-to-be-opened South Australia Cricket Association (SACA) museum so that it can be viewed by cricket fans all over the world, according to Wide World of Sports.
Earlier, the star batsman had gifted the unique souvenir to a boy in the crowd. However, a social media storm was created as viewers claimed that the boy who received the prized souvenir had actually taken it from its original recipient.

The videos of the incident were repeatedly viewed by officials to find out if there had been a mix-up. However, videos proved that the boy had been given the helmet by the batsman and no foul play occurred.
The boy, who was being claimed as the original recipient, was provided with a chance to meet the team and was presented with a signed bat.
The historic piece of memorabilia, however, will now belong to the public and will be available for cricket fans around the world to enjoy in the soon-to-be-opened SACA museum.
