After going to the crease with Australia in trouble at 40-3 late yesterday (Sunday), Clarke shared a record 259-run, fourth-wicket partnership with opener Ed Cowan. 

Cowan posted his maiden test hundred before he was run out for 136. 

Mike Hussey will resume with Clarke tomorrow morning with his score on 86.
