David Warner Announces Retirement from International Cricket Post T20 World Cup

Australia vs West Indies: Match Summary

Australian cricket legend, David Warner, has confirmed his retirement from international cricket, with his final appearance on home soil already behind him. His last match for Australia will be at the conclusion of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup this year.

Warner had previously announced his retirement from Test and ODI cricket. However, the left-handed batsman declared his departure from the T20 format shortly after receiving the Player of the Series award in Australia’s 2-1 series victory over the West Indies.

“I am well and truly done,” Warner stated during the post-match interview in Perth on Tuesday, following his swift half-century in Australia’s 37-run defeat to the West Indies.

“It’s time for the young talents to step up and display their skills. We have an abundance of talent here. The future of Australian cricket is in good hands.”

David Warner’s batting prowess was on full display as he scored a second consecutive century for Australia in their ODI against the Netherlands at the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023.

Warner is set to participate in the three-match T20I series in New Zealand later this month. He also plans to represent Australia in the T20 World Cup in June, which will be hosted by the USA and the Caribbean.

Despite being 37, Warner demonstrated his continued relevance in the T20 World Cup by being the top-scorer for Australia in their match against the West Indies. He scored 81 runs off just 49 balls before being caught by Andre Russell at the boundary.

The bizarre over of David Warner

David Warner’s over in Australia’s warm-up match against Pakistan at the Cricket World Cup in India was filled with surprises.

Australian skipper Mitch Marsh paid tribute to Warner and acknowledged the significant impact he has had on Australian cricket across all formats.

“David’s career has been truly remarkable,” Marsh said. “It’s fitting for him to conclude his career with such a memorable innings.”

“He has been an invaluable asset to Australian cricket. It’s unfortunate that we couldn’t secure a win for him.”
