David Warner Biography
Birthday: October 22, 1986 (Libra)
Born In: Manchester, Lancashire, England
David Warner is an Australian international cricketer and a former captain of the Australian national cricket team. However, he has captained for only limited-overs cricket formats, such as Twenty20 (T20) and one-day internationals (ODIs). In addition, he plays for the ‘New South Wales’ and ‘Sydney Thunder’ teams in the domestic Australian tournaments. Born and raised in Sydney, New South Wales, David started playing cricket when he was a kid. He played throughout his school and eventually became a member of the Australian under-19 cricket team. Throughout his late teenage years, David played and performed exceptionally well in domestic and first-class leagues. He also did exceptionally well in the ‘KFC Big Bash,’ which ensured his entry into the Australian national team. In January 2009, he made both his Twenty20 International (T20I) and ODI debut, playing against South Africa. His batting style was initially considered to be more suited to the limited-overs format. Thus, he made his Test debut a bit late, in 2011, against New Zealand. David is consistently listed among the best batsmen in the world. His hard-hitting left-handed batting style has made him an absolute favorite with the fans, who support him wholeheartedly whether he plays for his national team or his ‘IPL’ team, ‘Sunrisers Hyderabad.’ In March 2018, his involvement in a ball-tampering incident had him banned from international cricket for a year.
