Day 2 Roundup: David Warner's aggressive half century led Australia to a solid 113 without loss after Sarfraz Ahmed's belligerent century lifted Pakistan to 454 on the second day of the first Test on Thursday.

Warner raised his sixth consecutive 50-plus score in Tests and was unbeaten on 75 off 77 balls, with seven fours and a six, at stumps. Chris Rogers, dropped on 13, will resume on 31.

Ahmed earlier tormented the bowlers on the grassless pitch by making 109 off 105 balls, hitting 14 fours before Pakistan were dismissed just after tea.
