David Warner has been one of the most improved Australian Cricketer in the last one year or so. The hard hitting left hander has scored heaps of runs in all formats of the game all over the world in the recent past.
First, he helped his team Australia regain the Ashes by being ultra consistent in the 5-match return test series played against England last year, then, he went to South Africa and continued batting in the same way there as well. With some great innings played against the destructive South Africa pace battery, he proved himself as one of the best modern day test players.
Warner couldn’t win too many matches for his team in the World T20 Championship 2014 though and that was his only failure in the season.
His last assignment of the season was the seventh edition of the Indian Premier League. He was a part of the Sunrisers squad in that tournament and there he was asked to bat in the middle order which is a tough thing for any opening batsman, but, he accepted that challenge and excelled at his new batting position of number 4.
Not only did he turn out to be the highest run scorer for his franchise eventually, he got himself in the top 5 in the list of the leading run scorers in the tournament as well.
Warner won quite a few matches for the Sunrisers in the second half of IPL 7. His inning in the return match against the Chennai Super Kings was a memorable one. He single handedly got his team two points there and kept them alive in the tournament.
However, despite Warner’s heroics, the Sunrisers couldn’t get into top 4 and finished at the no. 6 position.
