Australian batting stalwart David Warner is a household name around the world for his explosive batting. 

Rested from the Indian tour, Warner will play Australia's penultimate international series against West Indies ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 next month. In his 11th year of international cricket, Warner is almost at the fag end of his career.

Since 2011, Warner has played 96 Tests, 138 ODIs, and 91 T20Is for Australia, amassing 16,300 runs at the top level. In a recent interview with Fox Sports, the 35-year-old opened up about his retirement plans and revealed his aims to remain active until the 2023-24 season.

Here's what Warner stated on his retirement 

“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 next year at least and see where I’m at,"

Warner further disclosed his goals, which he had written down back in 2013.

"I wrote down what I wanted to achieve and when I was going to retire.  I had 2033 but crossed out for 2023. I had like 20 (Test) hundreds, 20 ODI hundreds, 10 T20 hundreds, and over, I think, 6,000 Test runs, 5,000 ODI runs and 10,000 T20 runs. So I’ve pretty much ticked all them off bar two ODI (and two T20) hundreds,"

Warner will represent the Sydney Thunder in the upcoming season of the Big Bash League.
