Video: Brett Lee tried to do Warner jump the bail celebration, but escaped an injury  

An Australian side filled with young blood are enjoying the summer with the display of aggressive cricket. Both batsmen and bowler were in good shape. David Warner after scoring a hundred in the first Test at Gabba, Brisbane; scored his maiden double hundred against New Zealand at W.A.C.A, Brisbane.

Warner’s 286 balls 253 run innings came to an end on the second day just before the lunch. Warner’s 253 is the second highest individual score at the famous W.A.C.A ground after Matthew Hayden’s 380 against Zimbabwe in 2004.

Australia posted  559 runs in 133 overs. They scored at 4.20 runs per over. Along with Warner, last match’s hero Usman Khawaja also scored 186 runs ball 121.

For the third time in the series New Zealand bowlers looked pedestrian. Trent Boult and Mark Craig proved the most expensive bowlers. While Boult conceded 123 runs in 26 overs Craig conceded 123 runs in at an economy of 5.34. However, Craig got three wickets and Boult has taken two wickets.

Former Australian speedster Brett Lee was fascinated by Warner’s celebration. Warner after reaching the 200 hundred run mark jumped the bail.

So, on the second day of the game when a group of commentators were analysing the pitch and Australia’s innings, Lee tried to do  a Warner celebration. Lee, 39, left all to laugh because he failed to do the Warner’s celebration and probably escaped an injury as he controlled himself from falling down on the pitch.

Meanwhile, New Zealand have lost their first wicket in the first ball of the third over as Martin Guptill was trapped lbw by Mitchell Starc. Kane Williamson has joined Tom Latham have built 81 run partnership. Tom Latham was the second man to go. Latham has scored 36 and was caught at the slip by Steeve Smith off Nathan Lyon.
