David Warner hit a record century inside one session and his fellow opener Matt Renshaw a maiden hundred over three as Australia reached 365 for three at close of play on the opening day of the third Test against Pakistan on Tuesday.

With the series already secure after last week’s victory in Melbourne, Australia’s openers gave the hosts the best possible start to their quest for a 3-0 series sweep.

When stumps were drawn, Renshaw was unbeaten on 167 with Peter Handscomb on 40 not out alongside him in a partnership of 121. 

Usman Khawaja (13), Warner and Australia skipper Steve Smith (24) all fell to catches behind the wickets, the last a spectacular take by Sarfraz Ahmed off spinner Yasir Shah.

Pakistan paceman Wahab, who took 2-63, did not try to put a gloss on a disappointing day. “I think as a bowling unit, we have really let down our team,” he said. — Reuters


Brief scores: Australia 365/3 (Renshaw 167*, Warner 113, Handscomb 40*) v Pakistan
