David Warner named Bradman Young Cricketer of the Year

28/02/12 Category: Events, News Posted by:

Aggressive New South Wales and Australia opener David Warner has capped a breakthrough season to be named Bradman Young Cricketer of the Year at the 2012 Allan Border Medal this evening.

The left-hander won the award convincingly, polling 29% of player votes to finish well clear of Victorian paceman James Pattinson (20%) and South Australian right-hander Tom Cooper (16%).

Considered by many to be a short-form specialist leading into the voting period, Warner showed signs of his capabilities in the longer form late in 2010-11, scoring his maiden first-class century against WA in the final round of the season.

He followed up this performance with a dominant series for Australia A in Zimbabwe, which included a career-best 211 in Harare.

An injury to Shane Watson paved the way for Warner’s Test debut against New Zealand in Brisbane in the first Vodafone Test of the Trans-Tasman Trophy. A modest start was followed by an impressive, resilient and unbeaten innings of 123 in the second Vodafone Test in Hobart in Australia’s unsuccessful run chase.

Batting for more than five hours, Warner’s ton was his maiden Test century and he became just the fifth Australian opener in 37 years to carry his bat through an innings.

In only his fifth Test match, he scored a 69-ball hundred against India at the WACA, equalling West Indian Shivnarine Chanderpaul for the fourth fastest Test century of all time. The powerful left-hander went on to score 180 from 159 balls to reinforce his arrival as a talent across all forms of the game.

The Bradman Young Cricketer of the Year award was open to any player who was aged 24 or under and had not played more than 10 first-class matches at the commencement of the voting period.
