What did he do?

Warner brutalized India with a hurricane century making his way into the history books with the fourth fastest hundred in Test cricket. Warner who gave an exhibition of how to play horizontal bat shots on a bouncy strip scored the ton off just 69 balls. He reached the landmark with a huge six over long on off Vinay Kumar's bowling. The innings made a vital difference as Australia collapsed from 290-3 to 369 all out, soon after they lost the wicket of Warner. However, the blitz was good enough to seal an innings victory and an unassailable 3-0 lead in the four-match Test series.
