Warner to make his first class debut

Melbourne, Mar. 4 : Left-hander David Warner will make his first-class debut for New South Wales in a Sheffield Shield match after opener Phil Jaques dropped out due to back soreness.

The 22-year-old Australian opener in Twenty20 matches will bat in the middle order, with Ed Cowan filling the opening position.

In 2009, Warner became the third player in the history of Australian cricket to make an international début before playing a first-class game.

Warner made a sensational international debut against South Africa in the Twenty20 game at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Warner waits for either Twenty20 or Sheffield Shield call-up

Sydney, Feb. 11 : New South Wales batting dynamo David Warner may have been dropped from the Australia squad, but the cricket world still holds an abundance of opportunities for him.

On Sunday, Warner is expected to play for his country again in a Twenty20 match against New Zealand, and if not, will make his first-class debut against Victoria.

Even with young sensation Phil Hughes not playing as he prepares to leave with the national squad for South Africa the following day, NSW coach Matthew Mott claims there are an ample number of options to partner Phil Jaques.

"I think if David was to come in it would be in the middle order somewhere," Mott said.

NSW batting tyro Warner dumped from Aussie one-day squad

Sydney, Feb. 9 : New South Wales batting tyro David Warner has been dropped from the Australian one-day side for the final two matches of the five-game series against New Zealand.

The 22-year-old left-hander paid the price for a string of low scores by being axed from the 13-man squad for matches in Adelaide on Tuesday and Brisbane on Friday.

Ponting said it was up to Warner to go back to state cricket and challenge again for a spot in the national side.

"I think he was picked in our one-day squad on the back of a couple of unbelievable innings for NSW and that magnificent 89 he made in the Twenty20 (against South Africa) down in Melbourne," Ponting said.
