2. David Warner
The Australian opening batsman had made a cracking entry into the international scene. He smashed 89 runs from just 43 balls in a T20I against South Africa at the MCG, way back in 2009. It took him some time to adjust to the changing dynamics of international cricket, and once he did that successfully, he became a top batsman.
But since his early days itself, it had been noted that he was a pretty agile player on the field. The way he could move to the ball quickly was quite amazing. He could dive, he could chase the ball to the boundary and most importantly, he could hold on to the catches properly. Another interesting thing about him has been the fact that he hasn’t ever been injury-prone.
Barring that one year when he was banned by his own board, David Warner has been a constant feature for his national team. A player of his class doesn’t really like sitting around and warming the benches, which kind of proves why he works so hard for his fitness. He is also a tremendous runner between the wicket and it is remarkable how he has maintained this level of energy.
