David Warner had amongst the most memorable debuts in international cricket, when he was plucked from obscurity – without having played a single first class match – and made a stunning 89 off 43 balls in a Twenty20 International against South Africa. The innings was all the more remarkable due to its timing, coming as it did after a morale-shattering home Test series loss for Australia in 2008-09. Warner was soon signed on by the Delhi for the IPL.
