David Warner Marks Milestone with 100th Cricket Appearance for Australia

Date:

Experienced opener David Warner achieved a significant milestone, becoming Australia’s first player to make 100 appearances in all formats of cricket. His inclusion in Australia’s playing XI for the first T20I clash against West Indies on Friday marked his 100th appearance.

Warner’s 100th T20I appearance places him alongside former skipper Aaron Finch (103) and star all-rounder Glenn Maxwell (100) as just the third Australian player to achieve this feat.

Joining the ranks of India’s Virat Kohli and New Zealand’s Ross Taylor, Warner is now the third player to represent his country a hundred times across all formats.

In the match, West Indies captain Rovman Powell won the toss and chose to bowl first in the three-match T20I series opener at Bellerive Oval.

Leading the team in the absence of captain Mitchell Marsh due to Covid, Warner emphasized the favorable conditions, stating, “We were going to bowl first as well. The wicket looks nice. Generally in the first six, you can give yourself some time.”

Despite Marsh’s absence, Australia remained competitive with Warner at the helm. The playing XI for Australia included David Warner, Josh Inglis, Mitchell Marsh (c), Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Tim David, Matthew Wade (w), Sean Abbott, Adam Zampa, Jason Behrendorff, and Josh Hazlewood. Meanwhile, West Indies’ lineup comprised Brandon King, Johnson Charles, Nicholas Pooran (wk), Shai Hope, Rovman Powell (c), Sherfane Rutherford, Andre Russell, Romario Shepherd, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, and Jason Holder.
