During the 2005 – 2006 seasons, he was the lead run-scorer when Australia U-19 had toured India. Afterward, he played in the U-19 World Cup. Warner’s domestic career took a good turn as he signed with New South Wales, where he miraculously managed to record the highest single-day score of 165. This breakthrough led to his selection to join the Australian T20. In 2009, he made his first T20I debut against South Africa.
During the tournament in South Africa, he scored 89 out of 43 balls, and later on, he played his ODI for the first time that same year. After several breathtaking performances, David managed to make his first-class debut for New South Wales during the Sheffield Shield season, which happened from 2008 to 2009.
With determination to rise higher, David almost took Australia to victory on his own when he made 123 knocks in a match against New Zealand, which took place in 2011. The knockoff showed another entirely new side of Warner in the game.
In 2014, David scored 543 runs just in the three-match series held against South Africa. During this time, Warner also took the occasion to notch up his twin hundreds during the Cape Town Test. After the return of the Aussies to the game following the untimely demise of Philip Hughes, Warner struggled and did not manage to score a century in the ODIs. Except he only scored one half-century in the T20Is.
During 2016 and 2017, he eventually regained his ground and managed to win the Allan Border Medal. This victory made him the fourth player to win back-to-back after Michael Clarke, Ricky Ponting, and Shane Watson. To add to his fame list, Warner became the first Australian to score seven ODI in the game year 2016. In 2019, he made a comeback where he became the highest run-scorer.
