In a script which was threatening to be similar to the Gabba test, Australia posted a huge total on the board before they declared at 559/9 on the second day of the WACA Test. The only difference this time, was that the Kiwi bowlers put in a good fight and picked up 7 Aussie wickets for just 143 runs towards the end.Kane Williamson held fort for New Zealand when the visitors came out to bat, and scored exactly half of the total 140 that they put up before the close of play on the day, leaving them 419 runs behind.The best frames to have been captured in the course of the day’s action:
#1 Warner\'s 250 faster than anyone except Sehwag
David Warner reached the landmark of 250 runs early on Day 2. This is the highest Test score for the 29-year-old, and his knock has left New Zealand a huge mountain to climb for the second time in this series.
Of all 250+ scores in Test cricket, Warner's strike rate (90.68) is better than all but one man's – three efforts by Virender Sehwag.
