Adelaide Test: Warner, Labuschange punish Pakistan with twin tons

David Warner and Marnus Labuschagne exposed Pakistan’s bowling on first day of the second Test match at Adelaide Oval. Both batsmen slapped their second hundreds in a row. After the early blow of Joe Burns to the home tea, opening batsman Warner and No. 3 right hander Labuschagne continued their red hot form.

The pair built a huge partnership of an unbeaten 250 runs that put Pakistan on back foot in a day-night Test match. Warner, who struck 154 in first Test match at Gabba, completed his 23rd Test century. This was his 10th hundred in red-ball cricket that came on day one of the match.

While he was equally supported by Labuschagne, who smacked his second century in a row in Adelaide after brilliant 185 – his maiden century – in the first game. The unbroken partnership of 294 runs was the highest stand in day-night Tests. Australia had scored 302 for 1 by the end of the day one of second Test.
