Australian batting star David Warner has made a major statement about his future in international cricket ahead of his possible debut in Big Bash League 12. Warner will be returning to Australia’s premier T20 league after a nine-year absence. Talking about his international career, Warner was quoted saying that 2024 will probably be his last year representing Australia.
David Warner was talking to Sky Sports on Thursday, where he talked about eyeing the 2024 T20 World Cup as a final summit in his marvelous yet turbulent international career as it would be great to finish on the top. He also spoke about focusing more on the BBL and doing justice to his contract with the Sydney Thunder over this and the coming seasons.
“2024 most likely be the last year of my international career. I've got my sights set on the 2024 (T20) World Cup as well, so finishing in the Americas (North America and Caribbean islands), that'd be nice to top it off with a win over there, pending selection. I've signed (with the Thunder) for this year and next year, and it's my time to contribute and give back. I've got the time to do that now”, said Warner.
The Delhi Capitals star further talked about Australia’s upcoming tour to India for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. Warner expressed that he has extra motivation for defeating India. The 36-year-old also stated that he wants to prove that he still has the hunger and determination to perform well against the best teams in the world.
He said, “The extra motivation for me is winning in India and completely winning a series in England. I've been told by the coach and the selectors they would like me to be there. Was there doubt? Of course, there was doubt in my mind but for me, it was about going out there and knowing that I've still got that hunger and determination because every time I rock up to training, I've got it.”
