Warner makes the most of pointless day

Australia

The third and final Test between Australia and the West Indies ended in a draw, as expected, but day five saw David Warner get his eye back in with an unbeaten century.

Warner was the only Australia batsman to not cash in against the poor West Indies bowling in this series, so his 122 not out would have come as a nice finale as the Aussies won the series two-nil.

With days three and four washed out completely washed out, and days one and two also being cut very short by rain, only day five offered the fans something to watch, and they were treated to some fun batting.

The Windies were still batting in their first innings when the day began, and went from 248 for seven to 330 all out by lunch. Spinners Nathan Lyon and Steve O'Keefe bagged three wickets each.

Warner then went on the charge for the next two sessions, though much of the afternoon session was washed away as well. He reached his fifty off 42 balls, while Joe Burns and Mitchell Marsh were out in the 20s.

Warner was the main attraction though, and his ton came off 82 balls after the afternoon rains. By stumps, he'd struck two sixes and 11 fours, and recorded his only ton of the series.

Australia now face a quick turn around in mindset as they prepare for the upcoming ODI series against India, which starts on 12 January in Perth.
