David Warner and Travis Head have opened strongly in the fifth ODI against Pakistan at the Adelaide Oval.

Australian openers David Warner and Travis Head have caused Pakistan some serious grief and smashing records everywhere in the fifth One Day International (ODI) at the Adelaide Oval.

Not only did Warner crack his 13th ODI hundred in the Australia Day match on Thursday, it was also the fastest ton he's scored in the format in his career, coming off of just 78 balls.

On top of that, this particular century also means Warner becomes the first batsman to score four ODI hundreds in an Australian summer and equals Aussie cricketing icon Allan Border's record for fastest ODI ton at the Adelaide Oval.

After winning back-to-back Allan Border medals, is there anything Warner can't do?!

And don't forget Travis Head in this mix.

Surging to a strong 100 runs off of 121 deliveries -- a maiden century for his ODI career, Head paired up with Warner for a powerful 284-run partnership -- the best by any side on the first wicket against Pakistan in all ODI matches and also the highest ever Australian opening partnership in an ODI on any cricket ground, ever.

Warner finally fell for 179 -- the third-highest score by an Australian, which means that his partnership with Head is also the second-highest in the all-time list for first wicket partnerships.

In other words, bloody outstanding.

The batting onslaught came partly as a result of a series of misfields from the Pakistan team that sums up the opposition's summer in Australia.

The Aussies have already sealed the series with three dominant wins against Pakistan this summer, despite a loss in Melbourne.

No wonder why Pakistan's coach Mickey Arthur was left looking like this after a potential catch off a Warner ball was dropped.

With that superhero effort, Australia set Pakistan a healthy score of 7/369 to chase after 50 overs.
