Summary: Australia batted and batted and batted. David Warner and Joe Burns combined for a 222-run opening stand as Warner scored his first century in almost two years and Burns and fell three runs short of triple figures. Marnus Labuschagne then joined in, going to stumps on 55no with Warner still unbeaten on 151.

Man of the moment: David Warner. As if his big century wasn't enough, it came in his first Test back in Australia since the ball-tampering ban. Warner has now hit the 10th most centuries by an Australian, with Friday's ton his 23rd in Test cricket.

Key moment: Warner should have been caught behind off 16-year-old debutant Naseem Shah. But replays showed the quick had overstepped, and Warner earned a reprieve on 56.

Stat of the day: David Warner scored more runs (151) and faced more balls (265) on Friday than he did in his entire Ashes campaign.

Quote of the day: "Me and my wife got introduced to his girlfriend the other day, we had a nice dinner together. It was great to rekindle that love we have" - Warner joking on the relationship he shares with Joe Burns, after they were reunited at the top of the order.
