Australia got into a commanding position on day three of the third test of the ongoing Ashes series as they took 146 runs lead in the third Test as England could only pick up one wicket in the entire day. Day three of the third Test completely belonged to Australia and their captain who scored his second double century in Test cricket, both coming against England. All-rounder, Mitchell Marsh also completed his maiden Test century at his home ground.

Steven Smith who was unbeaten on 229 completely dominated the English bowling and hardly gave the tourists a chance to come back in the match. Mitchell Marsh on the other hand who is making a comeback to the Test set up scored his maiden Test century in his comeback innings and was unbeaten on 181 at stumps on day three.

He posted a picture of the two batsmen on Instagram and re-tweeted it. He wrote on Instagram, “What can I say. What a day it was for us. Thanks to these two blokes @steve_smith49 @mitchmarsh235 fantastic partnership so far. Maiden ? and just his 22 ? what else is there to say. #boom”

To which English journalist Piers Morgan replied, “Nothing, Mr Warner, say nothing. Let us suffer in silence.”

The two were then involved in a light banter as Warner again replied to the journalist and wrote, “Respect @piersmorgan”

Morgan then tried to get under the skin of the Aussie and wrote, “Mind you, if it was the other way round, we’d be unbearable..”
