Warner Blasts Ton as Australia Closes on India’s 161 in Test

Jan. 13 (Bloomberg) -- David Warner matched the record for the fourth-fastest Test century as Australia neared India’s first innings score of 161 without losing a wicket in the third cricket Test in Perth.

Australia’s bowlers dismissed India in 60.2 overs before Warner and Ed Cowan tore into the visitor’s bowlers, reaching 149-0 by the close of play. Warner, 25, reached his landmark in just 69 balls to record the quickest century by an opening batsman in Test history.

India, which lost the opening two Tests, lost its last six wickets for 30 runs as Ben Hilfenhaus took four wickets and Peter Siddle grabbed three against an opposition seeking to avoid a seventh-straight defeat away from home soil.

Warner was on 104 runs and Cowan on 40 at the end of the day. Australia trails India by 12 runs with 10 wickets remaining.

Australia would regain the Border-Gavaskar Trophy contested by the teams by avoiding defeat in either of the last two Tests.
