The left-hander set the tone with Finch in a savage opening partnership of 122 runs from just 10.5 overs.

The opening pair reached their half-centuries in the same over, both by smacking consecutive sixes from hapless quick Kasun Rajitha who finished with messy figures of 0-75 from four overs.

Finch, whose knock featured eight fours and three sixes, was caught at deep midwicket in the next over from left-arm wrist spinner Lakshan Sandakan (1-41 from four overs).

Maxwell joined Warner and the pair put on 107 runs - their century stand took only 52 balls.

Maxwell was dismissed in the last over and Warner, on the final ball of the innings, prodded into the off-side for a single to bring up his century.

The series continues on Wednesday in Brisbane with the third and final game on Friday in Melbourne.
