5 Batsmen to score centuries before lunch on the first day of a Test. David Warner became the latest to join Victor Trumper, Charles Macartney, Don Bradman and Majid Khan to achieve this feat. The last such instance was more than 40 years ago when Majid did it against New Zealand in Karachi in October 1976. The first three were all before World War II.

1 Instance of an individual scoring 100 or more runs in the first session on any day of a Test in Australia. Warner is the first to do so. The previous highest was 98 by Clive Lloyd at the WACA in the first session of the third day in 1975-76. The previous highest by an Australia player at home was 95 by Adam Voges against West Indies in Hobart in the first session on second day in the last season.

78 Balls in which Warner completed the century - the fastest by any player at the SCG. The previous record was off 82 balls set by himself in the last New Year Test against West Indies. This is Warner's second-quickest Test century after his 69-ball effort against India at the WACA in 2011-12. Overall, this is the fourth-fastest century among Australia batsmen.

1 Quicker centuries against Pakistan by any batsman compared to Warner's 78-ball effort. Brian Lara had scored one off 77 balls in Multan in 2006-07. Brendon McCullum also scored in 78 balls in Sharjah in 2014-15.

2 Australia openers younger than Matt Renshaw, who is 20 years, 281 days, to score a Test century - Archie Jackson at 19 years, 149 days and Phillip Hughes 20 years, 96 days. Overall, Renshaw is the seventh-youngest centurion for Australia. Among openers overall, he is the fourth-youngest to score 150 or more in an innings.

3 Higher scores by Australia openers at SCG than Renshaw who is unbeaten on 167 at end of the day. The highest is Sid Barnes' 234 in Ashes 1946-47. Among all openers, Renshaw's score is the tenth-highest at the SCG.

18 Test centuries for Warner - the most by any player since his debut in December 2011. However, he has converted only three of those hundreds into scores of 150 or more.

240 Previous highest aggregate by Australia openers in an innings at the SCG, against England in 1987-88. Warner and Renshaw have already added a combined 280 runs. This is also only the third instance of both home openers scoring centuries in the same innings at the SCG and the first since Justin Langer and Matthew Hayden did so against South Africa in the 2002 New Year Test.

3 Consecutive centuries by Warner in New Year Tests. He had also made 101 against India in 2015 and 122 not out against West Indies in 2016. He is only the fourth player after Wally Hammond (four), David Boon and VVS Laxman (three each) to score centuries in three consecutive Tests at the SCG. Warner now has three centuries each in Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney and Perth.

150.33 Australia's average opening stand in the first innings of last three SCG Tests. Chris Rogers and Warner added 200 runs against India in 2015, Warner and Joe Burns shared 100 against West Indies in 2016 and now Renshaw and Warner added 151 runs in this innings. Before these three Tests, they had only one century stand in 21 innings in 11 Tests.
