In a historic moment for Australian cricket, David Warner has marked his name in the books of cricket as he becomes the first Australian player to reach the milestone of 100 international matches in all three formats.

Warner's remarkable achievement will be celebrated during Australia's first T20I match against the West Indies at Bellerive Oval in Hobart on friday.

At 37 years old, Warner, renowned for his dynamic left-handed batting and electrifying presence on the field, has been a stalwart for the Australian team over the years. Having retired from Test and ODI cricket recently, he continues to showcase his dominance in T20Is and various franchise leagues.

The veteran opener, known for his aggressive style of play, has already left an indelible mark on the cricketing world, having played 112 Test matches and 161 ODIs for his country.

Warner's 100th T20I appearance will see him join the elite company of New Zealand's Ross Taylor and India's Virat Kohli as the only players to achieve the remarkable feat of a century of international matches in each format.

Scheduled to open alongside Josh Inglis in Hobart, Warner's milestone moment adds another chapter to his illustrious career, alongside fellow Australians Aaron Finch and Glenn Maxwell, who have also crossed the 100 T20I mark.

Reflecting on the ongoing West Indies tour of Australia, the Test series ended in a 1-1 draw, while the host nation asserted dominance in the three-match ODI series, clinching victory with a flawless 3-0 triumph.
