ADELAIDE AFP: An irrepressible David Warner smashed an unbeaten 335 on Saturday while Steve Smith became the fastest man to 7,000 Test runs as Australia put Pakistan to the sword before declaring on day two of the second Test in Adelaide. His knock was one more than former captain Mark Taylor’s epic 334 against Pakistan in 1998 and the second best score by an Australian of all time after Matthew Hayden’s 380 against Zimbabwe in 2003. Smith also moved past legendary countryman Donald Bradman’s 6,996 Test runs to become Australia’s 11th highest scorer.

Chief scores: Australia 589 for 3 (David Warner 335, M Labuschagne 161, Steven Smith 36)

Pakistan 96 for 6 (Mitchell Starc 4 for 22)
