David Warner retires: Opener’s career timeline in ODIs

David Warner retires: Having made his ODI debut in 2009, Warner has come a long way, and become one of Australia's most dependable players ever.

It’s hard to imagine an Australian team with David Warner, but his untimely retirement from the 50-over format has only come as a big shock. Not only has he been one of the most explosive openers in the last decade and more, but also been one of the most consistent as well. His departure from the ODI setup will leave a huge void in the Aussie team, and his shoes will be difficult to fill.

While the world of cricket will miss his services, it is also important to track down some of his most important moments in the ODIs.
