Warner was unbeaten on 335 – the second highest score ever by an Australian and tenth highest in Test history - when Australia declared at 3/589 late in the second session on day two.

Pakistan then struggled under the lights, crashing to 6/96 with left-arm quick Mitchell Starc taking 4/22 from 13 overs. Babar Azam is not out on 43.

Saturday’s attendance was 33,943 and they saw Warner became the seventh Australian to score a Test triple century. He joined Bradman (334 not out and 304), Bob Cowper (307), Bob Simpson (311), Mark Taylor (334 not out), Matthew Hayden (380) and Michael Clarke (329 not out).

Bradman’s unbeaten 299 at Adelaide Oval was made against South Africa in 1932.  

Earlier, Warner and Marnus Labuschagne stretched their second wicket stand to 361 runs before Labuschagne was bowled on 162. This was a record for both the second wicket in Australia and any Australian partnership against Pakistan.

Next in was Steve Smith, who made 36 in a 121-run partnership with Warner and along the way became the fastest player to 7000 Test runs, reaching the mark in 126 innings.

Matthew Wade then scored a quick 38 before the declaration when Warner went past Bradman and Taylor's top scores of 334.

Sunday’s play is scheduled to start at 1.30pm. Gates will open at noon.
