Top 10 Extra Ordinary Batsmen

David Warner didn’t have a rich vein of form in first class cricket when he broke into the Australian team, but all he had was some good form in shield cricket. But he showed with his performance in both the formats of the game that his place in the team is no joke. There was a moment early in his career where he struggled to keep his focus on the game and didn’t last much on the crease. Then was the time he set himself up to play in the Ipl for Delhi Daredevils. Virender Sehwag had a daunting influence on the southpaw who was his opening partner and it did a world of good to Warner. Since then there has been no looking back for explosive left hander. He had to wait till 2011 to make his presence felt in Test cricket after making consistent performances in the limited overs format. He has an impressive test average of 48.20 which shows how focused he has been on the longer format. After Hayden and Langer, Australia have yet another left handed opener who would serve the nation and the fans in the years to come.
