Top 5 batsmen in world cricket right now
5. David Warner
David Warner is the former vice-captain of the Australian team. He was given that post for a reason and that was because of his exploits with the bat. Warner is an elegant left-handed batsman who can accelerate in no time and score boundaries at his own will.
Warner's square cuts and pull shots are an absolute treat to watch. He has excelled in almost all conditions. After consistent failures in subcontinent conditions, he has started to perform there also. In Australia's series against Bangladesh in Bangladesh in 2017, he hit two centuries in the two-Test series. This shows that he focuses a lot on his game and strives to keep improving it.
Yes, he is serving a ban at the moment but once he is back into the international circuit, don't be surprised if he scores heavily again.
