    David Warner has the potential to be an opening batsman in the shorter forms for Australia. He isn't the best option, and should be made to score consistently over a period of time.

    However, the one good thing that may come out of all this is the increased possibility of a County gig, which would give him more exposure and maybe some FC cricket. Although they're probably less likely to get sucked in by the publicity over in England...

    There's no doubt that there is potential for him to settle as an opener.

    However, I believe that shouldn't be any time soon.

    Whilst he does have the raw ability, confidence, etc, there are definantly better options than him.

    Also, whilst I was impresed with him in the Twenty20, I am still to be persuaded that he is a great player. You have young kids like Duminy, that you can tell will be stars, just because he has starred in most the matches he's played in on the International stage, Warner has starred in one of the three matches he has played.

    All these people have been jumping on the 'Dave Warner bandwagon' after one innings, which could be said would be a bit of a lucky innings.

    So yeah, he has the potential to be an Aussie opener in due time, not now.

    Dave Warner clearly has potential and that really is not a debate at all imo, but its too early to push him into the Australian side, first let him play a full season of domestic cricket and few FC games and let him grow and mature as a batsman, this sudden rise to fame could prove to be too much to handle for the young bloke, and as luffy pointed out he has potential, but its still pretty raw atm, so when he plays regularly at the domestic level he would understand his game better, and would learn to work out an innings in different circumstances.

    Warner can also open the bowling as well. Punter just has to give him a chance.

    Cricinfo - Hayden among the savages

    Ian Chappell's article starts off well enough, but his suggestion of Warner as a test opener at the end earns my first use of:


    On these forums.

    Expect this kind of commentary from boof-head SEN ex-footy player "commentators" as opposed to someone who's views on the game I normally find worthwhile.

    Is this an artful comment on how hyped up he is?

    Now, as for Warner himself:

    20/20's: Sure; who cares?

    ODI's: Well, he has been in good form and since Australia appear to be short on ODI openers right now, he might be worth a look. Hell, he might even do well and settle in the side if his ODI performances are anything to go by.

    Tests: Nada, at least not for the next few years.

    N.B: There is an amusing flaw (I think) in the poll above - you can pick more than one option.

    What a gross stupidity?

    Warner has got a bit of potential in T20s and perhaps ODIs.

    He should be nowhere near the test squad FFS.

    Crazy for Chappell to even suggest Warner should be in Test consideration at such an early stage in his career. I'm sure down the line he may have a viable case for inclusion, providing he can prove his abilities in Sheffield Shield cricket. Far too soon for him to be seriously thought of as a replacement for Hayden.

    Bradman was the Warner of his day.

    Now, who will replace Hayden?

    There are primarily three candidates under consideration - Phil Jaques, Phil Hughes and Chris Rogers; all left-handers but none with the imposing aura of Hayden.

    However, there is another option. He's also left-handed and has the potential to dominate opposition bowlers. David Warner, the pocket dynamo from New South Wales has yet to play a first-class game, but in Twenty20 cricket he has displayed the potential to victimise international bowlers.

    The selectors have now elevated him to the one-day side, but they also need to find out if he has the same effect on opponents in the longer version of the game. This means Warner should open for NSW in Sheffield Shield cricket, but they already have two openers. Also, both Jaques and Hughes are pushing their claims for a Test berth.

    This creates a dilemma for the NSW selectors, but it's worth the aggravation to discover whether Warner really is a dynamic opener in all forms of the game. The selectors need to find out quickly so that Warner can be included in the England touring party if he succeeds in Shield cricket.


    Hayden could intimidate bowlers with his skill, belligerent attitude and bulky frame. Warner doesn't have the build of Hayden, but as both Slater and Sehwag showed, it's not size that matters - it's packing a punch at the top of the order that really counts.


    Seriously i can't believe Chappell would say something this stupid, i mean for the love of god Warner is yet to play a single FC game and you are dreaming of him probably being a replacement to one of the best test openers ever, for all we know Warner might not even open for the Blues in FC cricket because they already have three of them in there in Hughes, Jaques and Katich, frankly speaking Chappell was the last person i expected to fall for Warner love, which seems to be the most fashionable virus spread around in the cricketing world atm.
