Highlight Story

Australian captain Michael Clarke has given the green signal to opener David Warner to take a big swing at the ball in the World Twenty20.

Warner is Australia's in-form batsman and Clarke is banking heavily on him to fire. Warner is the leading scorer in Twenty20 Internationals in 2010 scoring 179 runs at an average of 35.80.

Clarke hoped that Warner will blast Australia into a winning position as quickly as he can, hopefully inside six overs.

Warner has already shown his form in practice matches, with scores of 72 from 49 balls and 51 off 41 deliveries against Zimbabwe and Windward Islands.
