David Warner represented Australia in 112 tests, 161 ODIs and 110 T20Is.

Australia opener David Warner concluded his illustrious international career after his team was eliminated from the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 following Afghanistan’s entry into the semi-finals.

Australia’s prospects of advancing to the semi-finals took a hit after a defeat to Afghanistan during the Super 8 stage. A subsequent loss to India on June 24th further diminished their chances, and Afghanistan’s victory over Bangladesh sealed Australia’s exit from the tournament.

Warner’s international career has thus ended, as he had previously announced that this tournament would mark his last T20I outing. Notably, his last ODI came in November 2023, while his last test came in January 2024.

Since making his debut in 2009, David Warner has amassed nearly 19,000 runs in international cricket, showcasing a prolific career that includes 49 centuries.

Here’s a summary of David Warner’s notable achievements in international cricket.

ODI Career

David Warner made his ODI debut against South Africa on January 18, 2009. He went on to play 161 ODIs, amassing 6,932 runs at an impressive average of 45.3. The left-hander raised 22 centuries and 33 half-centuries in his ODI career, with a highest score of 179.

Warner’s illustrious ODI career included notable achievements such as winning two Cricket World Cups, in 2015 and 2023. He played pivotal roles for Australia in both these tournaments, scoring 345 runs in 8 matches in 2015 and 535 runs in 11 matches in 2023. Among Australian century-makers in ODIs, Warner ranks second with 22 centuries, behind Ricky Ponting’s record of 29.

He was named in the ICC ODI Team of the Year in 2016 and 2017, and in the ICC ODI Team of the Decade for 2011-2020.

Warner’s last ODI match was the 2023 World Cup final on November 19th. He announced his retirement from ODIs in January 2024, marking the end of a remarkable career in 50-over cricket.

Test Career

David Warner burst onto the test cricket scene in grand fashion during the 2011 home series against New Zealand. In just his second test match, he achieved the remarkable feat of carrying his bat through an innings while scoring his maiden century.

Over a test career spanning 112 matches, David Warner amassed an impressive 8,786 runs at an average of 44.59. He notched up 26 centuries and 37 half-centuries, with a highest score of 335*.

On November 7, 2015, Warner joined an elite group by becoming only the third batsman in test cricket history to score centuries in both innings of a Test match on three occasions, following Sunil Gavaskar and Ricky Ponting.

His achievements extend beyond individual milestones, winning the Ashes series three times and retaining the Ashes twice in England. Warner was also there in Australia’s triumph in the ICC World Test Championship in 2023 and after that he announced that he would play his last test match in January 2024 against Pakistan.

He was named in the ICC Test Team of the Year from 2014 to 2017 and in the ICC Test Team of the Decade for 2011-2020. He was honoured as the Australian Test Player of the Year in 2016. Warner played his final test match at his hometown Sydney Cricket Ground in January 2024 against Pakistan, marking the end of a magnificent Test career filled with significant achievements and contributions to Australian cricket.

T20I Career

Warner began his international career for Australia in a T20I against South Africa at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on January 11, 2009, with a blistering performance of 89 runs off 43 balls. Over his T20I career, spanning 110 matches, he scored 3,277 runs at an average of 33.43, including one century and 28 half-centuries.

Notably, Warner played a crucial role in Australia’s victory in the 2021 T20 World Cup, where he was named Player of the Tournament as Australia clinched their maiden men’s T20 world title.

David Warner announced in February 2024 that the T20I World Cup 2024 would mark his last international tournament. His final T20I appearance came against India on June 24, 2024, during a Super 8 match which Australia lost.

Australia’s Super 8 from the T20 World Cup 2024 marked the conclusion of David Warner’s career on a disappointing note.
