You're taking a binary view of the world, George: X can't be heroic because Y is more heroic. I appreciate where your sentiments come from, but there's also the factor that the crane driver doesn't have to do his job in front of 25,000 people on the day, with millions watching on TV. He doesn't have to give interviews and press conferences to be questioned about his very personal grief. Nor is he doing a job where more days end in personal failure than success, and where the highest level of success - the century - is something rarely attained.
Both examples are tragic, and both deserve admiration and support. With the cause and the aftermath of Warner's grief both already so public, there's no surprise that there would be a public response to his efforts.
A 40-year-old just scored the fastest ever Test century.
Well that renders prognostication useless, doesn't it? So the side as expected, minimal changes. Good stuff.
