David Warner smashed yet another century in the ongoing Australia vs Pakistan day-night Test 2019. The opener has certainly risen from floor to haem in the longest format of the game. After a horrific outing in Ashes 2019, Warner hit two consecutive centuries in the ongoing series. It was Warner’s 23rd hundred in the longest format of the game and the fifth against Pakistan. The pink-ball was expected to favour the fast bowlers and the early departure of Joe Burns also displayed that. However, Warner didn’t put a foot wrong and went on to play a magnificent knock.

During the course of his innings, the left-handed batsman mustered 12 boundaries and is still going strong. Along with being watchful, Warner also aggregated runs at a rapid pace and brought up his century of mere 156 deliveries. Before this, the 33-year-old also smashed 154 runs in the opening match at Adelaide and was named ‘Man of the Match’ in his side’s victory by an innings and 65 runs.

David Warner and Joe Burns Utilise Delayed Start by Playing 'Rock Paper Scissor.'
Earlier in the match, Australia won the toss and elected to bat first. However, the start of the day’s play was delayed due to rain. When the clash started, the hosts lost Joe Burns cheaply. However, the duo of Warner and Marnus Labuschagne steadied the ship and brought the home side back into the match. The duo have already added more than 150 runs for the second wicket and all set to plunder a big total.
The Tim Paine-led side won the opening clash and are leading the two-match affair 1-0. They again have made a brilliant start in the ongoing clash and their victory looks inevitable again. On the other hand, the visitors need to put up an extraordinary show to bring their side back on track.
