David Warner

Born and raised in Sydney, New South Wales, David began playing cricket as a child. He played in his school and eventually joined the Australian U19 cricket team. During his youth, David played and performed exceptionally in national and premier league competitions. He also had an outstanding performance at the KFC Big Bash, which secured his entry into the Australian domestic cricket. In January 2009, he made his debut at T20 International (T20I) and ODI against South Africa. His percussion technique was initially thought to be more suitable for limited-overs format. He made his Test debut shortly afterwards, in 2011, against New Zealand. David is regularly listed as one of the best batsmen in the world. His powerful left-handed batting style has made him favorite with the fans that support him wholeheartedly, both for his national team and for his IPL team “Sunrisers Hyderabad”. What happened to the ball prevented him from playing international cricket for a year. 

Childhood and Early Life

David Warner was born on 27th October, 1986 in Paddington, Sydney, New South Wales to Howard and Lorraine Warner. He grew up with his elder brother Steve. His family came from the middle class as his father worked in a factory. 

David’s parents were barely able to provide the basic necessities of life to their children. The first bat David purchased at the age of 10 was the SS Jumbo, which he used so carefully that if anything happened to bat, his family could not buy a new one. David continued to play cricket throughout his childhood and adolescence. David lived in the Housing Commission’s apartment and started working part-time while he was still in school. On the weekends, he sold newspapers to visit school camps. 

Despite everything that kept him from doing so, he never stopped playing cricket. He attended Randwick Boys’ High School and was a member of the school team. Despite being known for hitting the left-handed batsman, his school coach is fed up with knocking the ball in the air. David made a stick with his right hand, but David, taking his mother’s advice, struck with his left hand. 

He played for “Sydney Coastal Cricket” club and broke the record of the club of top scorer for the Under-16 team. He also played for the “Eastern Suburbs” at age 16. Around the same time, he was selected for the Australian Under 19 national team touring Sri Lanka. His fame grew in the late 2010s when he was seen in the national team without playing in a top notch game.

International Information

In January 2009, David made his international debut in the T20 Match against South Africa when South Africa visited Australia. In his first game, he scored 89 scores off 43 deliveries hitting 7 fours and 6 sixes. He also scored the 2nd fastest half-century in the T20 match. 

He made his Test debut against New Zealand in Brisbane in December 2011. The match was part of the “Trans-Tasman Trophy” tournament and he got his chance when another strong player, Shane Watson, was injured. In the first inning he scored 3 runs. He had 12 unbeaten spells in the second inning and made the victory runs. He scored his first Test Century in the same series against New Zealand and scored 123 unbeaten runs in the second innings. Since then, he has played 74 test matches for Australia, averaging 48.20 runs per innings with 6,363 runs. Moreover, he secured 21 Centuries and 29 Half-Centuries and his highest score is 253. 

ODI Career 

In January 2009, David played his first ODI debut against South Africa. His consistently good performance enabled him to join the Australian limited-overs team. However, since the best potential of cricketers is achieved through their performance in the form of cricket tests, David’s value has not yet been proven. 

During his ODI career, David has played 106 international games and scored 4,343 points, with an average of 43.43. He scored 14 centuries and 17 half centuries, and his highest ODI score is 179 runs.  

IPL Career

David is also an exceptional IPL player. He first played for “Delhi Daredevils”, but since 2014 he has been played as a top-notch batsman for “Sunrisers Hyderabad”. With 4,014 “IPL” scores, he holds the record for the highest-scoring international cricketer in the league. 

However, a ball-tampering scandal led to his disqualification for all forms of cricket in 2018. That’s why he didn’t play in the IPL that year. In 2019 he returned to Sun Riders Hyderabad.
