Australia edged closer to victory in the second test against Pakistan, and a series whitewash, after spinner Nathan Lyon struck twice to leave the tourists on 167 for five in their second innings at tea on day four.

The southpaw surpassed Don Bradman and Mark Taylor's highest scores of 334 and looked comfortable to break the record of highest individual Test score (400) set by the West Indies batting legend Brian Lara before Australia skipper Tim Paine declared the innings with Warner unbeaten on 335.

Mitchell Starc took six wickets as Pakistan were bowled out for 302 before they were forced to follow on on day three of the second Test in Adelaide.

David Warner had managed only 95 runs at an average of 9.50 in the Ashes and despite dishing out consistent performances in the T20I series against Sri Lanka and Pakistan, he was under pressure before the start of the Test series against Pakistan. "Babar has been exceptional".

"I'd like to congratulate Australia, they played wonderful cricket, especially David Warner for his triple hundred".

Australia won the first Test in Brisbane by an innings and five runs.

However, it was Lyon who broke their position by catching Iftikhar on short leg by Marnus Labuschagne, who had given up three chances earlier in the match.

"That's been a big positive now for us that Babar has stamped himself a Test player".

He trapped trapped Yasir Shah (13) lbw in front with a ball that skidded and sped on and went to the dinner break midway through his 25th over when Shaheen was caught at mid-off by Hazlewood. "I thought last night when the lights came on it was a pretty simple decision, although our bowlers had bowled a lot of overs, they had a decent rest for the first two days so we knew they had plenty in the tank".

Pakistan captain Azhar Ali said Monday that adapting to conditions more quickly and building partnerships were both crucial if his team hoped to snap a miserable Test record in Australia. But very positive for the future, we will learn a lot.

"No, I think I was more disappointed against New Zealand at the WACA (when he scored 253 in 2015)", Warner told Fox Sports.
