Australian opener, David Warner spoke about his future plans in red-ball cricket ahead of the test series against West Indies.

David Warner is one of the most destructive Australian opening batters of all time. However, after the Sandpaper Gate, his glorious career went on downhill. He was banned from playing all forms of cricket for a year. Moreover, he was barred from taking up a captaincy role for the rest of his career.

However, post the ban, Warner came back with a bang. He salvaged all that was left and proved himself all over again. David Warner has been around the field for quite a while now. There are speculations that he might close the curtains on his test career. Warner has finally addressed the rumors.

“I’ll have to assess again at the end of the season,” David Warner

Australian opener, David Warner addressed his retirement rumors ahead of the upcoming West Indies tour. He was asked if the upcoming Ashes will be his last series. To this, Warner responded that he feels fresh and that runs are flowing in. Hence, he will have to go back home and asses again post the conclusion of the season.

“These legs are still fresh. I’m still scoring runs. I’ll have to assess again at the end of the season and speak to the family. I’ve got three beautiful young girls and my wife at home has sacrificed a lot, so there’s a lot of things I have to weigh up,” 

David Warner further added that he wants to win a series against India and England on their respective home grounds before retirement.

“Yeah, looking ahead, I think winning in India is key. We’ve had a lot of series over there, and we haven’t won too many test matches. England is another one – we retained last time, but to win over there would be awesome,”

David Warner will next feature in the upcoming 2-match test series against West Indies. Warner is likely to open the inning with Usman Khawaja.
