They say “If his bat isn’t doing the talking, then his mouth probably is. And either way – it’s fireworks!”

Sit back (for there is a lot), and sail through his glory.

Look at him switch his stance to reach his 50 in style


IPL 2018 – A dark year in Australian cricketing history, Warner was banned from playing any form of cricket due to a ball tampering case on him. Kane Williamson took on the reins in his absence.

As he left for Australia’s world cup preparation…


DREAM11 IPL 2020 – David Warner is reinstated as captain of the Sunrisers Hyderabad. We just can’t wait to see what’s in store!

On a lighter note……

The talented Warner: He is a writer as well. Based on the nickname he earned as a kid, he is the proud author of the book series named ‘The Kaboom Kid- The big switch’.

The Kaboom Kid- The big switch

The adorable and lively Warner: Warner is famous for his adorable Tik-Tok videos with his family on the internet. Sometimes dancing to an Indian tune to frolicking around with his girls (wife and daughters)… he will leave you enamoured. Take a look at this one.

The changed Warner: A brash player famous for his acid replies and frequent brawls with other players almost got him a “perennial offender” tag. But he mended his ways and how! He ended up being called Mr Reverend (someone worthy of utmost respect) by his coach. What a mountain of the difference!

Cheers for now!
