It looks like there is no stopping David Warner at Adelaide as the star Australian opener went on to make 250 runs on Day two of the second Test against Pakistan. Warner now has the second-highest score in  Day-Night Tests and remains unbeaten as Pakistan's attempts to get rid of him are failing. Warner was joined by Steve Smith after Labuschagne was dismissed and the two have already crossed the 100-run partnership mark, helping Australia inch closer to a mammoth total of 500. World number one Test batsman Steve Smith became the fasted player to reach 7000 runs with just 126 innings and the eleventh Australian player to cross 7000 runs in international Test cricket as he batted along with Warner.
