Australia’s batsmen enjoyed themselves with the bat as they finished day one on 302-1 in their day-night Test against Pakistan in Adelaide on Friday.
The hosts, electing to bat first after winning the toss, lost the wicket off Joe Burns off Shaheen Shah Afridi’s bowling with just eight runs on the board. However, it was all Australia from that moment on as opener David Warner and one-down Marnus Labuschagne feasted on some mediocre bowling by the Pakistanis.
The two are currently in the middle of a 294-run partnership for the second wicket — the highest-ever for Australia against Pakistan.
Warner, carrying his form from Brisbane to Adelaide, went on to score his second consecutive 150 and is unbeaten on 166 off 228 deliveries with 19 boundaries to his name.
His partner Labuschagne also scored his second consecutive century and is unbeaten on 126 as Australia look to seal the two-match series after winning the first game by an innings and five runs.
