Few people in the world of cricket can claim to possess such skill sets and leadership as David Warner. Since August of 2015, this robust opening batsman with an aggressive nature on the field has been the vice captain of the Australian men’s national team in all formats of the game, ODI, Test and Twenty20.
David Andrew Warner, the formidable left handed batsman and the only Australian cricketer who has never played first-class cricket were born on 27th October 1986 at Paddington, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia to Herbert and Sheila Warner.At the early age of 13, Warner’s coach encouraged him to switch to right-hand, but with his mother’s encouragement against that advice Warner later broke the most scoring records of U/16 For Sydney Coastal Cricket Club.
Often known as “The Bull”, Warner brings justice to his nickname with adequate performance and supernumerary aggressiveness , often getting involved in verbal spats and once attacked English player Joe Root in a bar earning him a suspension from the series.
In spite of this, “The Bull” has been tamed quite a bit after his marriage to famous Australian iron woman and fitness model Candice Falzon. He is known to be a loving father to his two beautiful daughters Ivy Mae Winter and Indi Rae. Warner is a family man and a nature lover who adores pets and loves spending some quality time with his family while appreciating nature. No doubt, he had and is still having the best times of his life.
David Warner claims to be a less than perfect student having recently posted the picture of his high school report card where he had barely average score and was positioned 34/44 in his class. It was cricket that attracted him more and his report card reflected that well. He obtained his early education from Matraville Public School and further attended Randwick Boys High School. Interestingly his high school teacher told Warner he would never succeed in life while handling him his report card and more than a decade later Warner keeps proving him wrong.

He owns six race horses among which the most notable might be the “ Man of Distinction”.
The Warners recently sold out their South Coogee mansion for more than 7 million dollars and have listed their Sydney home for 4 million dollars which are up for a knock down rebuild at Maroubra. Along with Warner’s Matraville investment apartments records show Candice Warner bought a two bedroom Maroubra apartment for 830,000 dollars which were leased out in November of 2016 for 675 dollars a week.

David Warner may perhaps best explain the story of rags to riches. Being a self made man growing up in hardship, Warner wants to leave behind a ginormous financial legacy for his kids. Other than his contracts with Cricket Australia, IPL and Big Bash League, Warner makes more than a million with his sponsors from Gray-Nicolls to the Nine Network.

Against New Zealand, in Hobart, he earned an easy victory for the Aussies with a score of 123, but his career best 180 against India at the WACA perhaps outshines them all.
In his test career, he paved his name on the founding pillars of International cricket with his twin hundreds against South Africa in 2014 and repeated that extraordinary feat in Adelaide against India.Warner has quite a list of awards with his name some of which are:
• Trans-Tasman Trophy

He was also named Australia’s Sports Dad of the Year 2016.The popularity he gained is immeasurable.
When asked about his underperformance in the warm up game he said that the way he plays. He either goes for“cash in” or he is “going to get out cheaply”.
Emerging from a housing commission estate David Warner is a self made man who has come a long way; be it earning the position of vice captain and opening for the Australian team or earning $12 an hour to $4 million a year. Soon predicted to be the richest Australian sportsman we can only hope great things await in his path.
