Warner makes a century for Phillip Hughes

Australian opener David Warner is celebrating a century against India on day one of the first Test in Adelaide.

Warner has provided a poignant tribute to Phillip Hughes, needing only 45 deliveries to pass his half-century, but with no jubilant celebration.

Instead, Warner closed his eyes and looked to the sky, and he did so again when he reached 63 – the score Hughes was on when he was hit at the SCG two weeks ago.


Skipper Michael Clarke was given a loud standing ovation by the crowd when he came out to bat.

Earlier, Chris Rogers was out for nine and Shane Watson was dismissed for 14.
