When the going gets tough, the tough get going“. David Warner‘s story has been the same. 

It all started with the Champions Trophy 2013. David Warner got suspended from the Champions Trophy and the two Ashes 2013 warm-ups after a bar-room altercation with Joe Root. With just one fifty in six innings in the Ashes 2013, he also got dropped from the ODI squad that featured against England and India. The worst four months(June-September) David Warner would have ever faced in his life. But somewhere down the line, this proved to a blessing in disguise for him. 
 
To comeback into the international team, he had to make a strong case in the domestic circuit which he did it too perfection. Three big hundreds accompanied with some handy 30-40’s indicated that something special was about to come. David Warner’s form looked good and these innings showed a different Warner. He was valuing his wicket 120 times more than what was required and the maturity with which he was playing his shots was altogether a level up and finally, the breakthrough came in the home Ashes 2013-14. David Warner scored 523 runs in 10 innings at an average of 58.1 with 2 hundreds and 2 fifties. It got clear that Warner’s form was back. The count of the loose shots was close to nil and the maturity to play down the ground and score smartly became a treat to watch. 
 
The destruction didn’t stop here. In the test series against South Africa earlier this year, Warner scored 543 runs in 6 innings at an average of 60.5 with 3 hundreds and 2 fifties. The likes of Steyn, Morkel, Philander and Abbott had no answer to his slaughtering. In the ODI’s too, Warner good form didn’t stop. In the six ODI’s, he scored 282 runs at an average of 47 with 3 fifties. For now, it looks like the word domination has got replaced by Warner. 
 
In the ongoing test series against Pakistan, he has scored 133 in the first innings and with three more to come, Pakistan can land into a lot of trouble. 
 
Australia is scheduled to play some real tough cricket in the upcoming 5 months along with the World Cup. I think that David Warner’s form would be very important to Australia’s chances in each and every series they play till the World Cup and if he continues to play the way he is doing now, I think the confidence of South Africa, India and England is going to suffer a lot ahead of the World Cup.
