Birth Sign

Former captain of the Australian national cricket team, David Warner is an international cricket player for Australia. Only limited-overs cricket formats, like Twenty20 (T20) and One-Day Internationals (ODIs), have he captained, though. In addition, he competes in domestic Australian tournaments for the Sydney Thunder and New South Wales teams. David was born and reared in Sydney, New South Wales, and he took up cricket as a child. He continued to play cricket throughout his time in school and eventually made the Australian under-19 squad. David participated in and excelled in domestic and first-class leagues during his late teenage years. Additionally, he excelled in the “KFC Big Bash,” securing his spot on the Australian national squad. He played his first Twenty20 International (T20I) and One-Day International (ODI) match against South Africa in January 2009. At first, it was thought that his batting style would work better in the limited-overs format. He so made his Test debut against New Zealand in 2011, a little later than expected. David is frequently ranked as one of the world’s greatest batters. He is a fan favorite because of his aggressive left-handed batting style, and they cheer him on no matter if he plays for his national team or the Sunrisers Hyderabad of the Indian Premier League. Due to his involvement in a ball-tampering incident in March 2018, he was given a one-year ban from international cricket.

Early Life & Childhood

On October 27, 1986, David Warner—the son of Howard and Lorraine Warner—was born in Paddington, Sydney, New South Wales, as David Andrew Warner. Steve, his elder brother, grew up with him. Their father was employed at a factory, and they came from a lower-middle-class family.

David’s parents struggled to provide for their kids’ basic requirements. When David was ten years old, his family bought him an “SS Jumbo” bat, which he used very carefully because if something had happened to it, they would not have been able to buy a new one.

David kept up his cricket game throughout his adolescence. David began working part-time while attending school and lived in an apartment owned by the Housing Commission. He worked as a weekend newspaper salesman to pay for school camps.

He persisted in playing cricket despite all the obstacles in his way. He was a member of the school squad and attended “Randwick Boys High School.”

Despite his reputation as a powerful left-handed batter, his school coach was sick of seeing him knock the ball high into the air. Although he insisted that David bat with his right hand, David chose to follow his mother’s advice and used his left hand instead.

He broke the club record for the highest-scoring batsman for the under-16 team while playing for the “Sydney Coastal Cricket” club. At sixteen, he also participated in the “Eastern Suburbs” club. He was chosen for the Australian under-19 team that toured Sri Lanka at about the same time. His notoriety began to rise in the late 2010s when he was being considered for the national squad despite never having participated in a premier league match.

Career of David Warner

David started playing cricket for New South Wales at the domestic level around 2008. David had already represented Australia in international matches before making his first-class debut in March 2009. As a result, he made history as the first Australian cricket player to represent his country in an international match without participating in a single first-class match.

David hit 20 fours and 10 sixes while representing “New South Wales” in local competitions, scoring 197 runs off 141 balls. This was the greatest individual score in Australian domestic one-day cricket history.
During South Africa’s tour of Australia in January 2009, David made his debut for his country in a Twenty20 match against them. He hit seven fours and six sixes his route to scoring 89 runs off 43 balls in his debut game. In a T20 match, he also achieved the second-fastest half-century.

David also made his ODI debut in the same month, against South Africa. His constant inclusion in the Australian limited-overs squad was a result of his consistently strong performances. He was yet to establish his value, though, as a cricket player’s greatest potential is determined by how well they perform in the Test cricket format.

In December 2011, he played his first Test match in Brisbane against New Zealand. He was offered an opportunity to play in the “Trans-Tasman Trophy” match after Shane Watson, another powerful hitter, sustained an injury. He scored three runs in the opening inning. In the second inning, he went 12-runs without losing and scored the game-winning runs.

Against New Zealand in the same series, he amassed his first Test century with an undefeated 123 in the second innings. He has since represented Australia in 74 Test matches, appearing in them and amassing 6,363 runs at an average of 48.20 per innings. In addition, he has amassed 21 centuries and 29 half-centuries, with a career-best score of 253.

David has participated in 106 international matches during his ODI career, amassing 4,343 runs at an average of 43.43. His best ODI score was 179 runs. He has hit 17 half-centuries and 14 centuries.
David is a superb “IPL” player as well. After playing for the Delhi Daredevils for a while, he joined the Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2014 and assumed the position of top-order batter. He is currently the league’s highest-scoring international player with 4,014 “IPL” runs.

But in 2018, he was barred from participating in any cricket-related activities due to the ball-tampering controversy. Because of this, he missed that year’s “IPL” games. In 2019, he rejoined “Sunrisers Hyderabad.”

Achievements & Records

David Warner is known as one of the best batsmen in the current Australian line-up. In addition, he is the only batter from Australia to score seven hundred in an ODI in a single year. He and his teammate Shane Watson are both recognized as some of the best T20 openers. Together, the duo has amassed 1,154 runs in Twenty20 International matches, the second-highest opening-pair total in the history of the competition.

In January 2017, he won the ‘Allan Border Medal’ for the second time and became only the fourth player to win the prized award more than once.
From 2015 to 2018, he led the Australian squad as deputy captain. During the 2016 ODI series against Sri Lanka, he captained the team. Against England and New Zealand in the 2017–18 “Trans-Tasman Tri-Series,” he captained the team as well.

Disputes of David Warner

In March 2018, during the third Test match of a series against South Africa, David and Steve Smith were charged with ball tampering. It was then discovered that the team’s leadership was aware of Cameron Bancroft’s alleged ball-tampering in advance. Following an investigation by “Cricket Australia,” David was found guilty of the accusations. In March 2018, David received a one-year ban from playing domestic and international cricket, as well as a lifetime ban from leadership.

David has also drawn a lot of flak for acting aggressively during games. New Zealand skipper Martin Crowe described him as the youngest cricket player on the field.
