Australia v Pakistan: David Warner & Marnus Labuschagne hit back-to-back centuries

Yasir Shah

Australian batsman David Warner sweeps a ball as Pakistan wicketkeeper Mohammad Rizwan (L) reacts. Australia swatted aside the visitors by an innings and five runs in the first Test and one of the major reasons behind it was the success of the newly formed opening pair of David Warner and Joe Burns. Despite Afridi sending back Australia opening batsman Joe Burns (4) in the fourth over, there wasn't any additional relief for Pakistan. The commentators had a laugh about it as they watched the replay during the first Test's proceedings on Friday.

Both Warner and all-rounder Marnus Labuschagne have scored individual hundreds in a second-wicket partnership which has crossed the 250-run mark at the time of writing this article.

After that, and despite 17 overs lost because of rain, the Australian batters were ruthless in eight wicketless hours. He went within an inch of notching his century with a six, advancing down the track to leg-spinner Yasir Shah and lofting him down to long-off. "But he is a real handful with a pink ball and if something was to happen (to one of our bowlers), we will know Nes will do a great job", the Australian captain added.

None of the Pakistani seamers targeted the stumps, with as little as four per cent of balls projected to hit the stumps mis-way through the truncated second session.

In the 42nd over of the first innings bowled by Iftikhar Ahmed, Shaheen Afridi could not stop the ball played by Warner in the deep fine leg. Afridi kept jogging the opposite way to where the ball ended up.

The Secretary General welcomed France's increased defence spending and support for the European Union's efforts on defence. Ankara views the YPG as terrorists with links to militant Kurdish separatists in southeast Turkey.

It was a second test century in as many matches for Labuschagne, who is playing his 11th test.

While the Australians stuck with the same XI that won the series opener, Pakistan made three changes in a bid to end a losing streak in tests in Australia that dates back to 1995.

The visitors recalled paceman Mohammad Abbas, who was surprisingly omitted in Brisbane, with Imran Khan dropped.
