'Next five years are scary': David Warner on jam-packed international schedule

With every passing year, the amount of cricket being played across the globe increases dramatically, leading to players' burnout. Ben Stokes announced retirement from ODI cricket, while Trent Boult opted out of New Zealand Cricket's central contract, enabling himself to pick and choose games.

Australia's David Warner, too, raised his concerns over the amount of cricket taking place in current times.  

Warner, who is at the fag end of his career, said that players will find it hard to maintain a balance between cricket and life going ahead.

"The schedule looking for the next five years is scary. I am glad that I am at the back end because it's very-very difficult. I am obviously with the family; a lot of guys have young families as well. That's going to be difficult. It's very difficult at this level to try and compete (in) 80-90 games a year."

What's next for Warner?

Warner will next be seen playing in the upcoming three-match ODI series against visiting Zimbabwe.  He will also likely play the home series against New Zealand and West Indies and the three-match T20I series in India before the T20 World Cup.
