MELBOURNE, Nov 14 (Reuters) – David Warner, the opener for Australia, has given hints that he may retire from test cricket after the Ashes series in England in the next year. However, he intends to continue playing white-ball cricket at least until the Twenty20 World Cup in 2024.
The reigning world champions At the Twenty20 World Cup, which was held in Australia and won by England on Sunday, Australia was unable to get past the quarterfinals, and David Warner had a very lacklustre tournament overall.
During an appearance on the Deadset Legends show on Triple M, Warner stated that “Test cricket will probably be the first one to fall off.”
“Because this is how things are going to turn out. The Twenty20 World Cup will take place in 2024, and the World Cup will take place next year.
“It’s possible that the next year may be the final time I play test cricket.
“But the white-ball game is my favourite; it’s so exciting.”
The year after that, Australia would play their international cricket matches in both India and England before heading back to India for the 50-overs World Cup.
The 20-overs World Cup will be shared between the United States and West Indies in the year 2024.
Next year, when both Warner and another batter, Usman Khawaja, will reach 36, there is a possibility that Australia would lose both players.
Warner had a terrible tournament at home in the Twenty20 World Cup, scoring in the single digits three times before scoring 25 against Afghanistan. Despite this, he continues to be a highly sought-after name in franchise cricket.
“T20 cricket is my favorite format of the game. I will work toward reaching the year 2024 “the player who batted left-handed said.
“Be on the lookout for everyone who has said something along the lines of “I’m past it” or “a lot of those old people are past it.” Take care with the things that you wish for.”
Beginning on November 30, Australia will play host to a two-match test series against the West Indies. Following that, Australia will play host to South Africa for three tests and an equivalent number of one-day internationals.
