David Warner Centuries

Last Modified Nov 04, 2022 16:12 IST

David Warner is an Australian national cricketer who plays for Australia at international level and New South Wales in the country's domestic competitions. The player also plays in a couple of franchise tournaments like Big Bash League (Sydney Thunder) and Indian Premier League (Delhi Capitals).

Warner made his international debut for Australia on January 11, 2009 and since then has been an integral part of their setup across all formats of the game. He has also served as the vice-captain of Australia under Steve Smith in Tests and ODIs and was the captain of the T20I side for a brief period.

He was one of the rare talents in Australian cricket to have made his international debut in a T20 International game against South Africa without playing a single first-class match. He stunned the entire nation with his brisk 89 runs off 43 balls on T20I debut which allowed him a place in the ODI team as well.

Warner is a destructive opener who has made the bowlers sweat on the field to strive for his wicket. Over the years, Warner has turned into a mature batter and can play longer innings in white-ball formats.

Warner has amassed 16485 runs in 332 international games at an average of 42.81 for Australia across all formats. He is the sixth most run-scorer of Australia overall and the highest among active Aussies. The left-handed batter has also decorated his career with 43 international hundreds - 24 in Tests, 18 ODIs and 1 T20Is.

Warner made his Test debut two years after breaking into Australia's white-ball teams. He has amassed 7817 runs in 96 Test matches at an average of 46.53 with 34 fifties and 24 centuries.

Warner achieved his first Test century against New Zealand in just his second match in December 2011. He scored 180 against India in the third Test in Perth in January 2012.

During the third Test between South Africa and Australia in Cape Town in 2014, Warner scored twin tons - 135 and 145 - as Australia secured a comprehensive victory by 245 runs.

In the same year later, Warner hit another set of Test hundreds against India in the first match in Adelaide with scores of 145 and 102 to take a 1-0 lead in the four-Test series. He notched another three-figure score of 102 in the Sydney Test against India which ended in a drawn affair.

Warner slammed his first double-hundred in Test cricket against trans-Tasman rivals New Zealand in November 2015. He scored 253 with the help of 24 boundaries and two sixes to put his side in a commanding position of 559 in the first innings.

In November 2019, Warner had a colossal series with the bat against Pakistan. The flamboyant left-hander accumulated 489 runs in just two innings. Starting the series with 154 at the Gabba and followed with a splendorous 335 not out in Adelaide. If not for the declaration by then Australia captain Tim Paine, Warner would have probably breached legendary West Indies batter Brian Lara's 400.
