Australia v Pakistan, second Test LIVE: Warner passes Bradman and Taylor as Aussies declare

Starc clips the shoulder of Imam’s bat and the outside edge zooms to Warner in the gully!

Perfect line and great length from Starc and Warner takes a good, sharp chance. You can’t keep the triple-centurion out of the game!

Imam departs for two off 16 balls, and Azhar Ali is the new batsman in. Pakistan are 1-3.

Warner acknowledges the crowd as he walks off the ground after hitting 335 not out.

A second DRS in as many balls! Cummins hits Imam on the front pad and the Aussies all go up convinced he is out lbw.

The umpire is having none of it so the hosts go upstairs with one second left on the countdown clock. Ball tracking shows the ball is pitching outside leg stump and the Aussies lose a review.

What a ball from Starc!!! He strikes in the first over as he hits Shaan on the front pad and the Pakistani opener is absolutely plumb. The umpire raises his finger quickly.

However, Shaan asks for the DRS and Hot Spot shows a huge outside edge! Good review for Pakistan and Shaan survives.

Mitch Starc to open the bowling from the Cathedral End. Shaan Masood on strike.

Warner’s innings is the 10th-highest score in Test history.

He cracked 335 runs off 418 balls at a strike rate of 80.14, including 39 boundaries and a six.

Another single for Warner moves him to 335 not out – the second biggest score by an Australian.

And with that, Australia declare on 3-589.

With a single, Warner moves to 334 not out, drawing level with the great Sir Donald Bradman and Mark Taylor. Matthew Hayden (380) is now the only Australian ahead of Warner.
