BRISBANE---It took one Test for David Warn-
er and Joe Burns to become established as
Australia s opening combination, creating a
milestone with two century partnerships in
the first Test against New Zealand to change
the complexion of the series.
Burns (129) plundered two sixes in three deliv-
eries to reach his maiden Test hundred, moments
before rain interrupted play on Saturday evening,
and Warner (116) completed a personal double
after the resumption. The pair became the first
Australians to combine for two 100-plus stands
for the first wicket in the same Test.
Their 237-run partnership in the second
innings followed a 161 stand on day one of the
first test, which set Australia on course for its
first innings of 556-4 declared.
Warner, who scored 163 in the first innings,
joined former Australia skipper Ricky Ponting
and India captain Sunil Gavaskar as the only
batsmen to post hundreds in each innings of
a Test three times.
At stumps on day three, Australia was 264-
4 in its second innings, an overall lead of 503
Burns, who batted at No 6 in his first two
Tests but was promoted to open following the
retirement of Chris Rogers, achieved the rare
feat of outscoring Warner for most of their
partnership, getting off the mark with a bound-
ary and then calmly clouting spinner Mark
Craig for straight sixes to move from 88 to 100.
His 123-ball innings contained 14 fours and
Warner was also on the attack but, after
reaching his 14th Test century, tried an ill-
timed reverse sweep to spinner Mark Craig and
was caught in the deep to end the opening
It was the first of three quick wickets for
Craig, who also had Burns caught in the outfield
and dismissed Mitch Marsh (2) to return 3-77.
Kane Williamson caught Steve Smith (1) low
to the ground to give Trent Boult his first wicket
of the innings, and only second of the match
in which the beleaguered New Zealand attack
is missing injured swing bowler Tim Southee.
Williamson batted defiantly for 140, scoring
his first Test century against Australia and 11th
overall, but was the last man out as New Zealand
was dismissed for 317---a deficit of 239---after
adding 160 to its overnight total of 157-5.
Warner, Burns set records as Aussies take lead
Australia 4 for 556 dec and 4 for 264 (Burns
129, Warner 116, Craig 3-78) vs New Zealand
317 (Williamson 140, Starc 4-57, Johnson 3-
105). Australia leads by 503 runs.
