David Warner is one of those rare openers in modern-day cricket who has thrived in all the three formats of the game. Now, a few people may say “Hang on! Didn’t he look like a fish out of water against the Dukes during the 2019 Ashes?” He, of-course did! Warner has not only struggled in England, but he has also endured a torrid time in the sub-continental conditions.
That said, Warner has been an absolute beast when it comes to playing Test cricket in his own conditions. Since the start of 2010, no Australian batsman has scored more than David Warner at home. In 75 innings that Warner has played Down Under, he has racked IP 4484 run at an average of 65.94 which also includes 18 hundreds and 12 half-centuries.
Overall, the southpaw has played 84 Tests for Australia since making his debut against New Zealand in 2011 and has gone on to make 7244 runs at an average of 48.94 including 24 hundred, two double-hundreds, and of-course that sensational, record-breaking 335 not-out against Pakistan in the Pink-ball Test last year.
‘My favorite form of cricket’- David Warner on Test cricket
Warner may be a white-ball beast but he is a traditionalist at heart with the five-day format being his favorite. The swashbuckling southpaw revealed the same during his latest video where he can be seen standing in front of a mirror and swiping past his own versions of imagery wearing Australia’s T20 and ODI kits.
The good old white fannels appear at the end of the video and Warner can be seen showing thumbs up to that version and jumping with joy on the other side of the mirror.
“Here it is, my favorite form of cricket. What do you think??” David Warner wrote while posting the video.
David Warner was all set to resume his captaincy stint for the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League but for the coronavirus pandemic that has proceeded to postpone the tournament for an indefinite period of time. Warner, in the meantime, has become a Tik-Tok celebrity with several videos of him and his family becoming a runaway success on social media.
