As Australia and the West Indies kick off a three-game Dettol T20I series, the returning opener plays 100 matches

Dashing opener of Australia Cricket team David Warner will become the first Australian to play 100 matches in all three formats and the third Australian to complete 100 T20I appearances. The series opener against the West Indies at Hobart's Bellerive Oval marked his milestone appearance, where West Indies captain Rovman Powell won the toss and opted to bowl. Warner, who has now retired from Tests and ODIs, will now only be seen in the shortest format. He has been a vital member of the team since his T20I debut in 2009.

Warner has been listed to open alongside Josh Inglis in Hobart in his 100th T20 International, joining Aaron Finch (103) and Glenn Maxwell (100) as the only Australian men to achieve the feat. Alongside India's Virat Kohli and New Zealand's Ross Taylor, Warner is just the third man to represent his country more than 100 times in Tests, ODIs, and T20Is.
