Three years ago Warner was left out of Australian cricket team and jettisoned to South Africa for punching <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/england" target="_blank">England</a> s <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/joe-root" target="_blank">Joe Root</a> in a Birmingham night club on the eve of the 2013 Ashes. The act was described as despicable by Sutherland but he had hoped for this being a big lesson for the left-hander and beginning of a new era for Warner. Even former Australia captain Mark Taylor believes the 29-year-old is Australia s most complete batsman across cricket s three formats and much improved. <strong>ALSO READ: <a title="Faf du Plessis praises Imran Tahir, David Warner s spirit of cricket after duo had on-field tiff" href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/faf-du-plessis-praises-imran-tahir-david-warners-spirit-of-cricket-after-duo-had-on-field-tiff-535450" target="_blank">Faf du Plessis praises Imran Tahir, David Warner s spirit of cricket after duo had on-field tiff</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>According to <em>Cricket Australia</em>, seeing the hard work done by Warner in all quarters for his sudden rise, Sutherland stated, "He just continues to step up. You can t help but be impressed by what he s doing. Seems as though marriage has been good to him, fatherhood s been good to him, vice-captaincy s been good to him and long may that last. He s stepping up as a leader and continuing to make runs and doing what he does best. I m very impressed. I think we saw that in him and I don t think the selectors would have recommended and the board approve his vice-captaincy if we didn t see the sort of growth trajectory that he was on. We re very comfortable with the role that he s playing, the support he s providing Steven (Smith) and the role he s playing in the team as well. <strong>ALSO READ: <a title="David Warner is the captain Australia need in limited-overs" href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/articles/david-warner-is-the-captain-australia-need-in-limited-overs-535525" target="_blank">David Warner is the captain Australia need in limited-overs</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>Warner has captained his country five times without tasting defeat. He s barely touched an alcoholic beverage and was awarded the Allan Border Medal as Australia s leading Men s cricketer in the preceding 12 months. He is also doing a good job as a father after he was named the Australia s Sporting Father of the Year in September 2016.
