Salad Days of David
David was 13 years old when his coach asked him to switch to right-handed batting as kept hitting the ball in the air but it was his mother who encouraged him to continue batting through left-hand. In his early teen years, he made the record for highest runs in U-16 for the Sydney Coastal cricket team.
Words of his father
”I’m shaking like a leaf. It’s the first Test hundreds of his I’ve seen. I wasn’t in Hobart; I wasn’t in Perth and we were on a plane when he got it at the Adelaide Oval. It’s been hard but he’s got through it and we’ve got through it. We lived the dream early, then we lived the nightmare, and now we’re back living the dream again.”
‘He’s got us a house. We move in in March or April next year. He’s done a lot. He’s got us out of debt, even though we weren’t in big debt. But we had credit cards and he paid them all off for us. He’s a bloody good kid. It helped us out something terrible. He’s basically just put me into retirement so I can go around and watch him play.”Howard Warner
