David Warner hits century, but Australia lose Michael Clarke against Pakistan

David Warner hits a Test century, but Australia lose four wickets in the morning session against Pakistan, who lead the first Test by 247 runs.

David Warner's century has given Australia a strong start to their innings, but Pakistan have nabbed the wickets of Chris Rogers, Alex Doolan, Michael Clarke and Steven Smith in the morning session of day three of the first Test in Dubai.

Warner led the Aussies' attack following an impressive start on day two, but Pakistan eventually found the breakthrough when Rahat Ali bowled out Rogers for 38.

Doolan could only hit five runs from 34 balls before getting run out by Ali, and he was later followed by skipper Clarke, who was dismissed by Zulfiqar Babar with just two runs to his name.

Despite the triple blow this morning, Warner continued to dominate at the crease and reached lunch unscathed having hit 133 runs from 171 balls.

Pakistan may have swung the momentum in their direction after snatching the wicket of Smith (22) prior to lunch as Australia sit on 207-4.

Warner will return for the afternoon session alongside Mitchell Marsh as Australia trail Pakistan by 247 runs.
