- David Warner (Australia)
Matches: 9, Innings: 17, Runs: 1096, Highest: 145, 100s: 6, 50s: 3, Average: 64.47
Ever since David Warner made his comeback after punching Joe Root right in the face, he has been in such a purple patch of his career that no one would have predicted for him. Even in the tests, a format thought to not suit his style of batting, David Warner has been Australia’s top performer since his debut. Yet alone in 2014, David Warner scored 6 hundreds – most for any batsman in 2014, 3 of whom came in consecutive innings and averaged more than 68. Such has been his approach towards this form of the game that he strikes 80+ runs every hundred balls. Twice this year, he scored dual hundreds in the same Test match and he is the hottest choice to open any Test batting line-up of 2014.
