World Twenty20 - David Warner

Australia opener David Warner in action

Team: Australia

Warner bludgeoned his way into the headlines when he scored the second-fastest fifty in Twenty20's short international history.

At 21, the Sydney-born left-hander smashed 89 off 43 balls against South Africa in January - all this before he had made his first-class debut for New South Wales.

His six-hitting antics - he cleared the ropes six times at the MCG - earned him a lucrative contract with the Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League.

Like fellow NSW phenomenon Phillip Hughes, Warner stands at 5ft 7ins but utilises his low centre of gravity, along with a heavy bat, to clear the infield.
