    To me he looks really awkward when he is batting, always looking to cover drive and square cut at most Deliveries.

    Think he's a touch old these days, must be in his 60s but love him in Cross of Iron.

    He's more than good enough to play the only format he does for Australia. Anything else is a different question.

    Always thought he was a bit crap. His first innings was pretty decent though.

    Favours the legside tbh.

    For me he is for 2020's, never ever will play test cricket and isn't that good of a one day batsmen at the moment either.

    Warner naturally favours the off-side, very strong through point.

    In longer forms of the game, he thrives on width; the "width predator" tag that James Brayshaw is very correct. He opens himself up in Twenty20 cricket to allow him a swinging arc when the ball is over the pegs.

    I think he could quite definitely be a quality first class cricketer, if given a chance to bat as himself, and at number 5 or 6. That's where he's made to play in the longer forms of the game. He was seen as a super finisher in OD cricket as a youth, and I think he could possibly carve out a role like that in the future.

    Not that old yet is he Jack?

    I imagine time's on his side in terms of development. Could see him being a very handy ODI player once he learns to play the right tempo for the situation. Can't say I've seen any of him in longer forms at all.

    26th match: Delhi Daredevils v Kolkata Knight Riders at Delhi, Mar 29, 2010 | Cricket Scorecard | Cricinfo.com

    This innings makes me believe that Warner has a genuine chance at ODI success. He played so well then, wasnt so much a slogger, but held the team together when the other top order bats fell.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Definitely T20 and possibly ODIs. Not even close to Test cricket yet.
