Profile

A destructive, fiery left-handed opening batsman from New South Wales, David Warner became the first Australian cricketer in 132 years to get into the national team without playing a first-class game. An outstanding fielder and a hard-hitting batsman, he was the leading run-scorer in the 2005-06 season when the Australia Under-19s toured India. He then proceeded to play the Under-19 World Cup.

Warner's domestic career took off brilliantly as he represented New South Wales and recorded the then highest one-day score of 165* for his team in the FR Cup, which immediately called for his selection in the Australian T20 side. He made his T20I debut in 2009 against South Africa, where he smashed a quick 89 off 43 balls and also played his first ODI the same year. After some good performances with the bat in the T20 arena, Warner finally made his first-class debut for New South Wales in the Sheffield Shield season of 2008-09. In the Indian T20 league, he has been playing for Delhi since the opening season and has been successful for them.

The best was yet to come for this talented, destructive southpaw. Despite making a quiet Test debut against New Zealand in 2011, Warner shone with a maiden international ton in only his fourth innings, smashing a blazing knock of 123* almost taking Australia to victory single-handedly. From there on, Warner cemented himself in the Australian team but faced immense criticism for unnecessary off-field stuff which often led to disciplinary action being taken against him. A major black mark on Warner's otherwise prolific career came when he allegedly had an altercation with Joe Root just before Australia's Ashes campaign in England, in 2013. He was then dropped for the first two Tests and asked to play for Australia A in their tour to South Africa. Warner, however fought back hard with loads of runs in the Australian domestic season that followed and contributed heavily in the return Ashes that followed Down Under.

Warner's form in Test matches was extra-ordinary as he scored 1,066 runs from the return Ashes series (November 2013) scoring 5 centuries in that. Warner has struggled in the shorter formats though, not being able to score a century in ODIs and scoring only one half-century in T20Is in that period. Putting this aside, Warner was bought by Hyderabad team for Rs. 5.5 crores for the seventh season of Indian T20 League.
