Australia’s aggressive opener, David Warner has hinted at his retirement plans from international cricket for Australia.
According to him, 2023-24 will most likely be his last years of international cricket for his nation.
Now 36 years old, Warner has had a stellar 14-year international career for Australia and is pretty much active in all three formats.
While he is famous for showcasing his explosive skills for Australia both home and away, additionally, he is also very popular in the Indian Premier League.
For Warner, next year’s ICC T20 World Cup is going to be his swansong as he wants Australia to lift the coveted trophy once again.
Australia’s first and last T20 World Cup win was in the UAE in 2021 when they beat New Zealand in the finals.
Warner reveals his retirement plans from international cricket
This will most likely be the last year of my international career.
Adding further, Warner says,
I’ve got my sights set on the 2024 [T20] World Cup as well, so finishing in the Americas, that’d be nice to top it off with a win over there, pending selection.
Next year, the USA and the Caribbean are going to host the T20 World Cup and Warner very much wants to be a part of the tournament.
He is also hoping to play a contributory role in the Australian squad for next year’s marquee event.
This year, Warner has two things ahead of him where he can play a similar role.
The first is the four-match Test series against India in February-March, after which he will be facing the English for the Ashes at the former’s home in the months of June-July.
Additionally, Warner will most likely participate in the 2023 World Cup in India as well.
In the 2021 T20 World Cup, Warner scored two half-centuries in the semis and final of the tournament and also received the Player of the Tournament award.
He ended up amassing 289 runs in seven matches with a strike rate of 146.7.
