David Warner ducks under a bouncer on the first day of the second Test between Australia and New Zealand in Perth on November 13, 2015Opener David Warner continued his love affair with New Zealand’s bowling and the WACA Ground by notching a career-best double century as Australia took total control and records tumbled on the opening day of the second Test in Perth on Friday.

At stumps Warner was unbeaten on 244, having notched the highest score by an Australian in a single day on home soil, with captain Steve Smith on five.
