Bio

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 the very first Test back in 1877.

The swashbuckling opener wasn’t satisfied with that little bit of history, becoming an instant star by smashing 89 from 43 balls in a T20 match against South Africa’s highly-fancied bowling attack.

His ODI and first-class debuts soon followed, as did an IPL contract with Delhi Daredevils, but Warner was forced to wait until 2011 to finally make his Test debut.

Pigeon-holed as a limited-overs specialist due to his apparent disregard for defensive play, Warner proved his critics wrong by carrying his bat in just his second Test, finishing on 123 in a narrow loss to New Zealand.

He then blasted his way to a memorable 180 in the third Test against India in Perth before a blistering century against South Africa in Adelaide the following summer.

But things turned sour for Warner on the eve of the 2013 Ashes Tour when he was stood down for taking a swing at England batsman Joe Root in a Birmingham nightspot.

Warner returned to Australia that summer with a point to prove and having forced his way back into the Test squad with irresistible domestic form, he peeled off five centuries in just eight Tests against England and then South Africa.

In an incredible purple patch, Warner passed 50 nine times in 16 innings to average 71.06 and establish himself as a genuine superstar of world cricket.
