Warner, the David

Does a new batsman, David Warner who has never played first-class cricket deserve a full article on himself?

Yes, if he hits the second fastest 50 ever in his very first international T20 match playing for his country! For he spells the vision of what is to come in future. You’d have people like him who are superstrikers of the ball. He is the first man to play for Australia before playing first-class cricket since 1877. His call-up had been a surprise and it capped off an eventful couple of months in which he also earned an IPL contract with Delhi Daredevils and a deal to use a two-sided bat. The rewards had come after he began the summer in dynamic fashion with a New South Wales one-day record of 165, and followed it with 97 from 54 balls in the FR Cup, proving his success was not a one-off.

BTW he is a left handed batsman who opened for Australia in the first T20 against South Africa on 11-January 2009 and hit a 43 ball 89 to steer Australia to an easy victory.
