Opener David Warner scored his 10th Test century in an emotional tribute to former teammate Phillip Hughes as Australia’s cricketers ended the first day of the first Test against India on 354-6 today despite the loss of captain Michael Clarke to another injury.

Warner, who was on the field two weeks ago when Hughes suffered fatal injuries after being hit with a short-pitched delivery, jumped into the air and looked to the sky when he took a single for his 100 at Adelaide Oval.

He was out for 145 in the final session – caught in the deep – when India picked up three wickets, including Brad Haddin for a duck in the final over of the day, ending play.

At stumps, Steve Smith was 72 not out.
