After the Test format, Australia’s explosive opener David Warner has announced his retirement from ODI cricket as well.
David Warner has already announced his retirement from Test cricket. The third and final Test against Australia and Pakistan (AUS vs PAK), starting from January 3 in Sydney (Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney), will be the last Test match of his international career. Warner said that he had considered retiring from this format as soon as Australia became the ODI World Cup (ICC Cricket World Cup 2023) champion.
Warner said that I am definitely retiring from ODI also. He said that I had thought about retirement during the World Cup itself. To be successful in the World Cup and win it in India, I think it is a big achievement. I know the Champions Trophy is coming. If I play good cricket for two years and if the team needs me, I will be available. Warner is at sixth position in the list of batsmen who have scored most runs in ODI for Australia.
He has scored 6,932 runs in 161 ODIs at an average of 45.30. He has 22 centuries in his name in ODI cricket. He is the second batsman to score the most centuries in ODI cricket for Australia after former captain Ricky Ponting (29 centuries).
Let us tell you that Warner was the highest run scorer for the team in the ODI World Cup. He scored 535 runs in 11 matches at an average of 48.63. During this period, two centuries also came from his bat. In the 2019 ODI World Cup (CWC 2019), he scored 647 runs. He is the first Australian batsman to score more than 500 runs in two ODI World Cups. 37-year-old Warner can retire from all forms of international cricket after the T20 World Cup (ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024) to be held in West Indies and America in June this year. But, this left-handed batsman will continue playing T20 league.
