David Warner began his career for Australia in rare and impressive style. He was the first man since 1877 to represent Australia without ever playing a first-class match.

He went ballistic whacking the likes of Dale Steyn for 89 off 43 winning Player of the Match honours. He seemed to firmly placed as a white-ball cricket with many doubting his potential to make it big in Test cricket.

But they were wrong.

It was two years after his T20I debut when Warner played his first Test match. Warner played New Zealand scoring 3 off 3 and 12 not out off 4.

Since these humble beginnings, The man known as the Bull has added over 8000 runs to his Test tally, scoring a double-century in game number 100 with one of the hardest-fought innings ever. He became just the second name behind Joe Root to score a double century in their 100th Test match - yet another tie that binds the unlikely pair.

Over his Test career, Warner has an average of 46.67, scoring over 8000 runs with a top score of 335 not out. Warner has scored 25 centuries and 34 half-centuries.
