David Warner has been one of the best players for Australia over the years. Despite being faced with controversies, his batting skill can not be overlooked. While the veteran will be 36 years old next month, David Warner opened up about his retirement plans and mentioned that he still has a lot to give to the game as well.
However, Australia is going to host the upcoming T20 World Cup and they will try to defend their title. David Warner has been included in the 15-member squad for the World Cup and may play a key role for his team up the order. While it is certain that Warner is going to be a part of the impending T20 World Cup, he is sure about his participation at least till the end of the year 2023 as well.
“I’ve really enjoyed my time playing, I’ve still got a lot to give. And I think I owe the next generation of cricketers and the supporters that little bit extra. My goal is to play until the end of net year at least and see where I’m at. There’s a lot of good kids coming through. Obviously me and Uz (Khawaja) open the batting in Test cricket, it’s a big hole to fill… to fin one opener is hard but to find two is going to be very hard,” said David Warner.
“I know when Smithy and I took over, we had some holes there. We went through a three or four-year period trying find a balance. It was extremely difficult. We won some games and some series but weren’t as consistent as we’d like. You don’t want to leave those holes, as hard as it is. But there’s going to be a time where at least five or six of us go around the same time, in 12 to 18 months,” concluded David Warner.
