David Warner was in unstoppable form as he amassed his 12th Test century on day one of the fourth Test against India, says Mark Butcher. Air Max 97 Wholesale China . Warner struck 101 off 114 balls – his third ton of the series – as Australia ran up 348-2 after winning the toss, sharing a first-wicket stand of 200 with Chris Rogers (95).Skipper Steve Smith (82 not out) and Shane Watson (61no) then built on the platform at the SCG, where former team-mate Phillip Hughes was fatally injured six weeks ago. Australia captain Steve Smith comments on the plaque erected by Cricket Australia for Phillip Hughes at the Sydney Cricket Ground “India have not been able to do anything right, and Australia have pretty much not been able to do anything wrong,” said former England batsman Mark Butcher.“The pitch looks an absolute belter – there’s not a blade of grass on it. It was a great toss for Steve Smith to win. But having said that, you’d expect an international bowling attack – all be it one that is as inexperienced as India’s – to be able to bowl one or two (more) maidens than they’ve managed.“Warner had a little bit of a struggle to start with; there was a feeling perhaps that the emotion of the Test match being back at Sydney where his great mate passed away had got to him.“But once he got away he was just unstoppable. He’s scoring at almost a run-a-ball in Test match cricket and he’s making scoring hundreds look as though it’s the most simple thing in the world to do. 2015 is Sky Sports’ biggest every year of cricket.

The celebration was emotional, as you’d expect, and it took an absolute beauty from the standout bowler for India, Ravi Ashwin, to get rid of him.”CompactRogers fell just four runs later when he dragged Mohammed Shami into his stumps – the fifth time he has made 50 in as many innings without going on to a century.Butcher said that, if anything, the 37-year-old struck the ball more crisply than his opening partner.“Where Warner is all about the high back-lift, late movements and audacity, Rogers is very much a compact, old-fashioned opener,” he said.“He has not made a century for quite some time now – not since the last Ashes – and it looked like he was going to break that particular duck having made five half-centuries already in the series.“He also made it look very simple indeed; if anything he was more consistent in terms of his ball-striking than Warner was, so it came as a bit of a shock when he finally made an error on the cusp of making that hundred.”PressureIndia could not make the most of having two new batsmen at the crease as Smith and Watson bedded in to make their own half-centuries.Watson enjoyed a reprieve late on in the day when Ashwin failed to grasp an edged chance off the bowling of Umesh Yadav, and Butcher said that miss could be just the break he needs.“Watson is under massive pressure,” he said. “He has been at No 3 for quite some time and his record has been going downhill rather than up over the last few years.“I felt for him a bit because I’ve been in the position myself where you are walking out to bat when everybody else is making it look very easy and you are having to scratch around.“But eventually he got himself going and made a pretty decent half-century and also has had a little bit of what he would say is rare luck to get away with not getting out in the final over of the day.”Watch day two of the fourth and final Test between Australia and India live on Sky Sports 2 from 11.30pm.
