David Warner returned home after getting injured in the Delhi Test. Warner was batting in the first innings of the Delhi Test when the ball hit him on the head, which prevented Do from batting in the second innings of the match. He was met by journalists at the Sydney airport after returning home. Warner himself said at the time that he wanted to play for Australia until 2024.
David Warner () has been struggling to score runs in the last few months. His form also looked poor in the ongoing Border Gavaskar Test series against India. Although Warner returned home after suffering an injury in the Delhi Test, his contribution in the first two matches was unremarkable. Warner scored 1 and 10 in the first Test in Nagpur. In the Delhi Test, he batted an innings and was dismissed for 15 runs. After arriving in Sydney, Warner was asked about the game. Speaking on this, he touched on the topic of Thed’s retirement and said that he wants to play cricket till 2024.
“I have always said that I will play till 2024,” Warner told the media in Sydney. If the selectors feel I am not fit to play in the team, there is nothing I can do about it. I’ve got the next 12 months, with the team playing a lot of cricket. If I score runs and contribute my best for the team, I can earn my place in the team as well.”
Meanwhile, considering Warner’s Test statistics, he has scored only one Test century in the last three years. He recently ended his century drought by scoring a double century in a Test against South Africa. It was also revealed that Warner was injured after this double century innings. His bat is currently looking quiet in all three forms of cricket. Looking at his performances, Warner seems to have already prepared for his retirement. However, he has left the decision to the selectors whether to give him a chance in the team before retirement. Although he was withdrawn from the third and fourth Tests against India, Warner could be included in the squad again for the ODI series against India.
