David Warner Announces Retirement From ODI Cricket, Likely To Play In 2025 Champions Trophy

David Warner has declared his retirement from One Day International (ODI) cricket and has also concluded his Test career. However, he has left the possibility open to participate in the 2025 Champions Trophy if Australia marks his presence necessary.

The star opener has played 111 Test matches for Australia in which he has scored 8695 runs with an average of 44.59. During this, he has smashed 26 Hundreds, 36 fifties, and three double hundreds.

His ODI records speak as well as the Test, where has gathered 6932 runs with an average of 45.01 with 22 centuries and 33 half-centuries to his name.

Warner was already anticipated to be absent from the upcoming three-match ODI series against West Indies as he would be fulfilling his Indian Premier League (IPL) commitments with Dubai Capitals. Additionally, he is poised to sit out the preceding T20 International matches. Despite this, Warner expresses his desire to extend his career in the T20 format, aiming to participate at least until the World Cup in the Caribbean and the USA scheduled for June.

David Warner said, “I’m retiring from one-day cricket as well,” he said at the SCG on Monday. “That was something that I had said through the World Cup, get through that, and winning it in India, I think that’s a massive achievement.”

He further added, “So I’ll make that decision today, to retire from those forms, which does allow me to go and play some other leagues around the world and sort of get the one-day team moving forward a little bit. I know a Champions Trophy is coming up. If I’m playing decent cricket in two years and I’m around and they need someone, I’m going to be available.”

“When we lost two games in a row in India, the bond just got stronger with each other and it’s not by fluke or by chance that we were able to get to where we were. The heroics of Maxi [Glenn Maxwell], the captaincy, and the skills and execution of the way that we played against India was phenomenal, and not to dismiss the Kolkata semi-final as well.”
