feature images in detail Warner tasted state cricket for the first time in 2006-07

Warner tasted state cricket for the first time in 2006-07 with two limited-overs and three Twenty20 appearances. An excellent fieldsman, Warner was used as a substitute in Australia's Test against South Africa in Perth in 2005-06. In the same season he was the leading run-scorer on the Australia Under-19 tour of India and went on to play at the Under-19 World Cup. A keen surfer, Warner completed his second year as a New South Wales rookie in 2007-08 after spending his winter at the Academy, a stint which ended early when he was sent home for general untidyness. He picked up an unbeaten 50 in his only FR Cup game that season, played four Twenty20 affairs and was promoted to a full deal following 760 grade runs at 54.29 with Easts.

He signed a three-year deal with the Blues in 2010 when there was the threat on an interstate move. Last summer he scored 89 runs in three Shield games and 195 in eight FR Cup appearances. It was again in the shortest form that he excelled and his strike-rate was an amazing 232.87 in five Twenty20 domestic fixtures, which came after he helped the Blues to the inaugural Champions League trophy in India.

feature images in detail David Warner exploded onto the international scene in 2008-09

A diminutive and dangerous opening batsman, David Warner exploded onto the international scene in 2008-09. His breathtaking effort of 89 from 43 balls in his Twenty20 debut against South Africa at the MCG was all the more remarkable as he was the first man to walk out for Australia before playing first-class cricket since 1877. His call-up had been a surprise and it capped off an eventful couple of months in which he also earned an IPL contract with Delhi Daredevils and a deal to use a two-sided bat. The rewards had come after he began the summer in dynamic fashion with a then New South Wales one-day record of 165, and followed it with 97 from 54 balls in the FR Cup, proving his success was not a one-off. His 390 runs in that competition came at a strike-rate of 129 and an average of 55.71.

feature images in detail Because of his limited-overs success

Because of his limited-overs success, Warner was never considered for Tests - until 2011, when he was first called up as an injury replacement. In his second Test, Warner did what Langer and Hayden never achieved in their careers - he carried his bat, though it was in a historic loss to New Zealand.

feature images in detail David Warner made a history-making international

David Warner made a history-making international debut in 2009, becoming the first man to represent Australia without a first-class match to his name since 1877. The swashbuckling opener has more than 1500 ODI runs to his name and the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup will be his first appearance at cricket’s biggest tournament.

feature images in detail Warner has formed a good relationship

He has won plenty of fans around the world for his big-hitting and aggressive play, with a high score of 163. Warner has formed a good relationship at the top of the order with fellow big hitter Aaron Finch. From 11 ODIs in 2014, Warner scored 406 runs including four fifties and a top score 71 off 70 against England in January.
