David Warner confirms international retirement after T20 World Cup 2024

David Warner, an Australian cricketer with years of experience shared his plans to step out of cricket after the 2024 T20 World Cup in June. Warner, who recently led Australia to victory against West Indies in a thrilling T20 match, announced his decision at the Bellerive Oval in Hobart.

Warner, who is 37 years old, has already stopped playing One Day Internationals (ODIs) and Test cricket. He said goodbye to the 50-over games on January 1. Then, he played his last Test match on January 6. During this match, fans cheered him warmly at the Sydney Cricket Ground because he helped Australia win against Pakistan a lot.

In his 100th time playing for Australia in T20 games, Warner became only the third cricket player ever to reach 100 matches in all types of international games. His amazing play, scoring 70 runs in just 36 balls, helped Australia get a 1-0 lead against West Indies. Warner’s great batting skills, along with Adam Zampa taking three wickets, made sure Australia won even though West Indies tried hard to come back.

Warner expressed how happy he felt about winning and mentioned his plan to quit international cricket after the T20 World Cup in June. “I’m so glad we won. The field was good for batting, and I’m really happy with how I played. I’m looking forward to the T20 World Cup. Our team has a bright future, and I want to stay with them until the end,” Warner said after the game.

If Australia wins the T20 World Cup, Warner can retire as a champion in different types of cricket. He was a big part of the Australian team that won the World Test Championship last June and the ODI World Cup in November.

Australia is in Group B with England, Namibia, Oman, and Scotland in the 2024 T20 World Cup. They start playing on June 6 against Oman.
