Australia’s key player and former captain David Warner gave a shocking statement as he expressed his intent to retire from international cricket after ICC T20 World Cup 2024. In the first T20I match of West Indies’ tour of Australia, Warner achieved a special milestone as he became the first Australian to represent that country for the hundredth T20 international match and play 100 games in all formats.

Warner also became the first cricketer in the history to register 50+ scores in the 100th match of Tests, ODIs as well as the T20Is. Notably, the legendary southpaw recently gave a phenomenal performance in his farewell Test series against Pakistan as he retired from the red ball format. 

Soon after Warner announced his retirement from the one-day format, as he bid adieu to long formats.

‘Feel great and refreshed’- David Warner on his recent form

After the first T20I game against West Indies, David Warner was awarded as the player of the match for his remarkable knock in his 100th T20I match. He scored 70 runs off 36 deliveries after smashing 12 boundaries and one maximum hit with a strike rate of 194.44. 

Despite his incredible form in white-ball cricket, David Warner is all set to announce his retirement from international cricket after the marquee tournament.

In the post ceremony after the game, David Warner said, “Pleased to get the win on the board. Was a nice wicket to bat on and you have to make the most of those. Feel great and refreshed, I’m pumped. I want to play the T20 World Cup and it’s a good journey we’ve got going for the next 6 months. Pretty much the same squad is going to New Zealand so it’s important we win there as well.”

Nevertheless, Warner will next be seen in action during the second T20I game between Australia and West Indies, scheduled for Sunday in Adelaide.
