It could have been even better for the tourists had Kohli not dropped a simple catch when Warner, who hit the quickest century by an opening batsman in 69 balls on Friday, was on 126.
As it was, Warner, showing only flashes of the swashbuckling brilliance he displayed on Friday, was allowed to reach his first 150 in his fifth test before holing out 20 runs shy of a double century.
The 25-year-old lefthander, who had resumed on 104, hit a spectacular six through extra cover, his fifth of the innings, and two balls later grabbed his 20th four with the crispest of cuts.
