Warner shines

SYDNEY. — Australia’s David Warner lit up the final day of the rain-ruined third Test with the fastest Test cricket century at the Sydney Cricket Ground as the match meandered to a draw against the West Indies yesterday.

Man-of-the-match Warner, determined to finish an undistinguished series on a high, reached his 16th Test century off 82 balls before a small Sydney crowd in the last rites to a frustrating Test. It eclipsed Matthew Hayden’s 84-ball ton against Zimbabwe in 2003.

The buccaneering opener had a highest score of 64 in the two previous Tests as team-mates helped themselves to six centuries against the tourists’ innocuous bowling attack. — AFP.
