David Warner declared his retirement from Test and One-Day International cricket earlier this year.
At Bellerive Oval in Hobart on Friday, February 9, during the first Twenty20 International match against the West Indies, Australian opening batsman David Warner was playing at his best. The southpaw hit 12 fours and a six during his innings, scoring an amazing 70 off just 36 balls. Australia amassed a mammoth score of 213/7 in their allocated 20 overs thanks to his scintillating performance.
Warner's 25th half-century in T20I cricket earned him the Player of the Match title. The 37-year-old announced his intention to retire following the 2024 T20 World Cup during the post-match presentation.
"Pleasing to get the win on the board. Was a nice wicket to bat on and you have to make the most of it. Feel great and refreshed, I'm pumped. I want to play the T20 World Cup and finish there and it's a good journey we've got going for the next 6 months. Pretty much the same squad going to New Zealand so it's important we win there as well," Warner said at the post-match presentation ceremony.
Notably, the T20 World Cup 2024 will begin from June 01 and will be held in the West Indies and the USA.
