David Warner came out with an attacking approach to give Australia a good start with the bat in their second innings.

Warner, suspended for punching England batsman Joe Root in a Birmingham bar during the Champions Trophy tournament in June, carried the attack to the home team with a series of crunching strokes.

While Chris Rogers was content to nudge and nurdle, Warner was in typically pugnacious mood and he welcomed Swann to the attack by lofting the spinner over wide mid-off for six.
