The feisty left-hander raised his fourth Test ton with three runs off part-time spinner Joe Root a half-hour after lunch on the third day of the first Ashes Test.

Warner jumped into the air and waved his bat around the Gabba, saluting his hundred.
He smashed Stuart Broad into the sight screen on the full for six but three balls later Broad enticed him to feather a catch to wicketkeeper Matt Prior on drinks in the middle session.
