David has been in good form in ODI cricket in 2020. He played seven matches this year and has scored 277 runs with an average of 46.17 and a strike rate of 99.64. He also scored a brilliant century against India in the first ODI of the three-match One Day series between the two countries. The match was played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai where Warner and Finch smashed big centuries to register a 10-wicket victory against Virat Kohli’s India.
Warner has also been renamed as the captain of his Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad for the upcoming season. Last year, he played 12 matches for the franchise and smashed 692 runs averaging a staggering 69.20 with a strike rate of 143.86.
