When on full flight David Warner is almost unstoppable

David Warner, the pugnacious left-hander has been an enigma around cricketing circles. He made his debut as a basher, a real tonker of the cricket ball, and had the ability to stamp his authority all over a cricket match within a matter of overs. His career has followed a strange path, as he was brought into International cricket bereft of any first class experience. Warner smashed into the limelight against South Africa in his debut T20 match and has never looked back ever since.

He has established himself as one of the most prolific openers in world cricket across all three formats and when on song he can be almost impossible to bowl at. His growth as a player and as a leader can be gauged from the fact that he has been appointed vice-captain of the team and people in and around Australian cricket believe that he has the panache to lead the team in the future.

Here in this list, we take a look at 5 reasons why David Warner becomes impossible to bowl at when on song.

#1 Ability to pick up the length of the ball

Judgement of length is key component to his batting

One of the key criterions to effective batting is the ability to decipher the length of the ball and then react accordingly. Batsmen who have been successful in the past had this gift of judging the length perfectly which then aided them in their stroke play.

David Warner too falls in this category. When in full flight, he has the ability to pick up the length of the ball and then go for his strokes accordingly.  He takes the defensive or aggressive route depending upon which length he believes is in his arc and zone. This uncanny trait has become a real nuisance for bowlers all around.
