David Warner begins a new chapter in his career

That was the status posted by one of my mate in Facebook and after reading that, nothing hit my mind to start this article. Surely, we are not going to talk about any movie offers for Warner but about the long happy career waiting for him in Australian dress. It’s not a warning from Warner to other teams but to Australia. The time has arrived for Australian team to call Warner into their regular set-up.

On Friday Oct 07, David Warner became the first player to score back to back centuries in Twenty20 and to top that he was not dismissed in both the innings. He either broke or made plenty more records in the ongoing Nokia Champions League (CL) T20 in India. It’s almost like a tournament is played to show cause his immensely matured talent. From being just T20 hitter, he came long away to become a big innings player. First a classic hundred in Chepauk against the defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) which knocked them out of the tournament and now a blistering hundred against Royal Challengers Bangalore but sadly Gayle storm ended Warner from showing more master piece innings like this two.

In the 2011 CLT20 tournament so far, David Warner has scored 328 runs out of which 228 runs came in boundaries (20 sixes and 27 fours). His magic show in the tournament had reverse hit sixes, superb running in outfield, bullet-arm throws and off course crashing through the off-side field which gave plenty of joy for spectators both on the ground and watching in TV. But in the midst of all those marvelous shots and power showing by Warner, the maturity in his approach to the batting went unnoticed. Warner was already made off for those long sixes, bullet-arm throws and powerful cuts on the off-side but he showed plenty more from his stock in this tournament.

The way Warner played against the slow bowlers especially on sub-continent pitches is mighty surprise for me and surely for many others too. He played the ball late, rotated the strike well and when he decided to go for big shots, he made sure to either reach for the pitch of the ball or pick the half-trackers. If this is surprise, then the determinant in approach to the batting is even more amazing from Warner. Usually after hitting a six or four, Warner tries to power or slog the next one for another boundary but not in this tournament. Whenever he hit a six early in the innings, he rarely followed it up by slogging the next one. He was smart enough to keep the good balls out by playing it for singles and patient enough to play the third ball after couple of dot with soft hands on the ground.

Like how Mathew Hayden career revived after Australia tour of India in 2001 test series and Shane Watson’s after first Indian Premier League (IPL) season, David Warner career is going to take a turn around after this year CLT20. He showed what everything needed to play at International level and now just need the backing of Australian team management to become a level more destructive player than Gilchrist.

 The inform Warner will surely tempt the Australian team management to accept Watson request of playing down the order.
