David Warner has well and truly chipped in with significant contributions to Australian cricket for more than a decade now. Initially, he did struggle quite a lot to get into the playing XI because of stiff competition back then.

However, as the games progressed, David Warner showcased a great deal of grit and determination. He let his bat do the talking by putting up consistent performances, cementing an irrefutable claim to greatness across all three formats of the game.

Today, he is one of the best openers across formats. The 36-year-old was recently seen in action during the Test series against the Proteas. He scored an impressive double-century at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground.

Meanwhile, Australia’s opening batter has dropped a huge hint at retirement. He said that 2024 will most likely be his final journey in international cricket and we might expect him to play the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 before calling it quits from the sport. David Warner will also be keen to deliver the goods for the national cricket team at the ICC Men’s ODI World Cup 2024. The mega event is scheduled to be held in India for the first time.

“I’ve signed (with the Thunder) for this year and next year, and it’s my time to contribute and give back,” Warner said. I’ve got that time to do that now … (this will) most likely be my last year of my international career. 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,” said Warner.

Meanwhile, David Warner is currently playing for the Sydney Thunder franchise in the Big Bash League. The experienced southpaw made a return to the KFC Big Bash League after nine years. Unfortunately, he ended up on the losing side as Sydney Thunder surrendered at the hands of Perth Scorchers.

David Warner will be back in international action for Australia’s tour of India. Australia will play the Border Gavaskar Trophy and the three-match ODI series. The tour begins with the Test series as the first of the four-match Test series is slated to be played on February 9 at Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium in Nagpur.
