David Warner announced his Test retirement following the conclusion of this year's Australian home summer and played his final T20I at the recently concluded T20 World Cup in the West Indies. 

While the legendary opening batter also confirmed his exit from ODIs earlier this year, the cricketer has left the door open for a potential return to Australia's 50-overs international circuit for the 2025 Champions Trophy.

Taking to Instagram on July 9, Warner wrote that he would continue to play franchise cricket but could open for Australia at the multi-nation event if selected. 

David Warner, a veteran of 161 ODI matches, played the high-octane 2023 World Cup final against hosts India at Ahmedabad on November 19 last year. 

A couple of months later, the 37-year-old confirmed his retirement from the format while making his exit from Test cricket.

So far in his career, the legendary southpaw has amassed 6,932 runs across 159 ODI innings at a splendid average of 45.30. Moreover, the cricketer tallied his runs at an astonishing strike rate of 97.26 and plundered 33 half-centuries and 22 tons.
