Australian opener David Warner has shocked the entire cricket fraternity by announcing his retirement from Test cricket. The announcement comes just days before the highly anticipated World Test Championship Final against India at The Oval.
Warner stated that he has made the decision to hang his boots with his successful Test career and mulling to retire from the same after the next summer of Australian cricket.
The Australian opener is currently in London and he is preparing for the World Test Championship final against the men in blue. The match will be played at Oval from June 7 and after that David Warner will look forward to one of the greatest rivalry of Test Cricket which is Ashes.
“You’ve got to score runs. I’ve always said the (2024) World Cup would probably be my final game,” Warner said on Saturday.
“I probably owe it to myself and my family – if I can score runs here and continue to play back in Australia – I can definitely say I won’t be playing that West Indies series.
“If I can get through this (WTC final and ensuing Ashes campaign) and make the Pakistan series I will definitely finish up then.”
