The partnership between David Warner and Marnus Labuschagne is now worth 50. It’s taken 110 balls but the runs are now flowing into the final half hour of the morning session. After the jittery escapes, the pair has finally settled in and the ball is regularly travelling through the gaps. Australia are 71 for one after 26 overs, trailing by just 76 runs as Warner and Labuschagne forge a solid alliance. The only man to go was Marcus Harris, who pushed at a lifter from Ollie Robinson with hard hands to offer a nick to second slip.
Warner and Labuschagne on the build!
The pair bring up their 50-run partnership.
