ODI Debut January 18, 2009 v South Africa at Bellerive Oval, Hobart

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 batter, 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 in 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.

The best was yet to come for this talented and 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* and nearly taking Australia to victory single-handedly. That knock was particularly special as it showed a different side to his game, where he battled it out under pressure and showed the temperament and patience for the longest format of the game. If that showed one side, then he displayed his natural destructive abilities against India in 2012 by ripping apart the Indian bowling attack, making his then career-best score of 180.

From there on, Warner cemented his place in the Australian team but faced immense criticism for unnecessary off-field issues which often led to disciplinary actions. 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 and contributed heavily in the return Ashes that followed Down Under. He scored 523 runs in the series, at an average of 58.11 which included two hundreds and as many fifties.

His form in Test matches was extraordinary as he continued his prolific scoring. Made 543 runs in the 3-match Test series against South Africa in 2014, where he notched up twin hundreds in the Cape Town Test. He repeated this feat against India in Adelaide and what made this more special was the fact that the Aussies returned to cricket after the unfortunate death of Phillip Hughes. Warner 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.

He eventually regained his form and was back to his best again and won the Allan Border Medal in 2016 and 2017, becoming the fourth player after Ricky Ponting, Shane Watson and Michael Clarke to win it back-to-back. To add to his laurels, David became the first Australian cricketer to score seven ODI tons in a calendar year (2016), joint second with Sourav Ganguly on the all-time list and only behind Sachin Tendulkar (9).

The left-hander was the second highest run-scorer for Australia in their 2015 World Cup winning campaign, with 345 runs in 8 games. That included a thumping of the Afghan side with a blazing 178 runs.  This was an excellent year for David to say the least. His vital presence in the team was recognized and he was made deputy to Steven Smith in the Tests and ODIs. In the Indian T20 League, he successfully represented Delhi since the opening season before going on to lead Hyderabad to the trophy in 2016. In their title-winning season, he was the second highest run-getter of the tournament with 848 runs. In 2015 and 2017, he was the highest scorer with 562 and 641 runs respectively. David Warner is one of the few players in world cricket who are doing well across all formats and Australia are benefiting immensely from his presence.
