<p>The 37-year-old opener failed to score a memorable century in his last Test match and seemed irritated as he exited the Sydney Cricket Ground to a standing ovation from his home fans.</p>
<p>After lunch, Australia led Pakistan 313 runs in the first innings with 78 runs thanks to Usman Khawaja on 35 and Marnus Labuschagne on 3.</p>
<p>After being dropped on 20, Warner was given a huge letdown by offspinner Agha Salman’s additional bounce and turn out of the rough. He then edged a catch off the shoulder of his bat to a jubilant Babar Azam at slip.</p>
<p>Warner, who may still play in the second innings of his last Test, has amassed 8,729 runs at an average of 44.53 with 26 hundreds in his 8,729 Test runs since his 2011 debut.</p>
<p>In Aamer Jamal’s first over, the experienced opener was given a respite when he was caught at first slip by youthful rookie Saim Ayub on 20.</p>
<p>With several missed opportunities, it was just another miserable moment for Pakistan on the field this series.</p>
<p>After missing the easy opportunity and after his two-ball duck in the first innings of his maiden Test match on Wednesday, Ayub bowed his head in agony.</p>
<p>The Australian bowling attack mostly contained Warner and Khawaja, who went to first-hour drinks at 39 without loss, adding 33 runs to their overnight total. It was a quiet start to the day for the Australians.</p>
<p>Australia won the second Test in Melbourne over Christmas by a close margin of 79 runs, sealing the three-match series.</p>
