David Warner is an Australian cricketer who has been a part of the Australian side for more than ten years. His aggressive batsmanship and intent to score runs when he’s at the crease is what makes him such a formidable opponent. The left-handed batsman has every shot in the book, and with his agile running between the wicket, Warner can put oppositions under pressure by simply being present at the crease.

After his sensational T20 debut, one would have said that Warner’s game was more suited to the shortest format, but over the years, he has adapted and matured as a batsman to become one of Australia’s most successful openers in all three formats of the game. Let’s go over some of the stellar numbers that Warner has accumulated over the years.

David Warner



Born on October 26, 1986, David Warner is a left-handed batsman and the de-facto opener for the Australian squad across all three game formats. Born in Paddington, Sydney, Warner is among the many exceptional players that hail from the city.

David Warner made his international debut on January 11, 2009, against South Africa in a T20I encounter at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). One would expect an opener to be nervous when performing on debut, but in his very first match, Warner scored a stunning 89 runs off 43 balls. What’s even more impressive was that this was David Warner’s first match at the international level; that is, he had not even been a part of any first-class game. Riding on his stellar performances, Warner made his ODI debut in the same series against South Africa on January 18, 2009.

Cricketing pundits and experts believed that the exuberant Australian opener would break many records, and boy did he live up to his potential. With success in the shortest format of the game that earned him his ODI international call-up, Warner made his Test debut two years later, in 2011, versus New Zealand at the Gabba.

Taking a Look at the Stats

ODI Cricket

Talking about ODI cricket, in the 129 matches that he has played, Warner has accumulated 5500 runs at a blistering strike rate of 95.37 at a healthy average of 45.44. This consistency and ability to score runs at will have constantly put pressure on opposition teams and have put Australia in a commanding position by building on the solid opening partnership. His highest ODI score of 178 came against Afghanistan on home soil in the year 2015. His ability to convert his hundreds into mammoth 150+ scores (6) is second best only to India’s Rohit Sharma (8).

T20I Cricket

After making an impressive T20I debut against South Africa in 2009, Warner has gone on to play 81 matches for Australia and has scored 2265 runs at a strike rate of 140. His incredible strike rate indicates his ability to score quick runs and get the team off to a flyer so that that middle order can come in and consolidate upon. Warner also scored a T20I century against Sri Lanka back in 2019.

Test Cricket

As they say, Test cricket is the most demanding format of the game. Hence, a cricketer’s ability is measured by his performance in the Test format. In cricket, there is a saying that players with an approach like David Warner’s do not make it big in the red-ball format, but Warner has silenced his critics and how. In the 78 Test matches he has played for Australia, Warner has scored 7000 runs with a healthy average of 42.41. He is also one of the few players to have scored a triple century in the Test format. His 335 against Pakistan at Adelaide Oval in 2019 remains his highest score in Test cricket.

IPL Stats

The IPL is the biggest T20 league globally and features all the best international players competing against each other. Thus, the performances of the IPL also hold a lot of weight in determining a player’s performance. David Warner has played multiple seasons of the IPL, and in his 150 appearances, he has scored 5450 runs at a strike rate of 140, putting together four centuries in the process. Apart from being an explosive opening batsman, Warner has showcased what a capable leader he is on more than one occasion. Warner led from the front, scoring more than 800 runs during the season and ensured that his IPL team, Sunrisers Hyderabad claimed its maiden IPL title in 2016.

David Warner: Recent News

The only blip in otherwise a stellar career is the 1-year ban imposed on him and the then Australian captain Steven Smith, following the ‘sandpaper gate’ in March 2018. But Warner has never been one to back down. Along with Smith, he has made a stellar comeback and is a constant feature of the Australian Test side.


David Warner comes from that special breed of cricketers for whom an aggressive mindset while batting comes naturally and is thus their biggest strength. It’s not all just mindless aggression that has made Warner a successful opening batsman; his ability to pace his innings and wear the opposition down is what makes him such a proficient opening batsman, one of the very best in this generation of cricketers.
