Australian opener David Warner brought up his 10th Test century in an emotional personal tribute to Phillip Hughes as the hosts went to tea at 238-2 despite the loss of captain Michael Clarke to injury on Tuesday on the opening day of the first Test against India.

Warner, who was on the field two weeks ago when Hughes suffered a fatal injury after being hit with a short-pitched delivery, jumped into the air looked to the sky when he took a single for his 100 at Adelaide Oval.

He then hugged batting partner Clarke, who retired hurt with an apparent back injury on 60. Reports suggested Clarke had back spasms and could return later in the innings.

After tea, debutant Karn took his first Test wicket, dismissed Warner for 145.
