David Warner is back in his home country after being ruled out of the remainder of Border Gavaskar Trophy. The Aussie opener suffered an elbow fracture and a concussion injury in the second Test of the India-Australia Test series. The star cricketer did not take the field on Day 2 of the second Test after he was hit off a bouncer from Mohammed Siraj on Day 1.
Indeed, he was later ruled out of the second Test with Matt Renshaw replacing him in the Playing XI. The Australian Test team was then hit with a massive blow as the 36-year-old was later ruled out of the remainder series.
In the latest update, the star batter has opened up on his future. Warner who landed in Sydney said that he is looking to play until 2024. “I’ve always said I’m playing to 2024; if the selectors feel that I’m not worthy of my spot, then so be it, and I can push on to the white-ball stuff,” Warner said to the media at the Sydney Airport.

Cricket Australia unsure of Warner’s place in the Ashes
The Cricket Australia selector Tony Dodemaidew had earlier opened up on David Warner’s place in the Ashes squad. However, the selector declined to give a clear answer but stated, “We’ll address the planning of Ashes (at a later time), but we are committed to picking the best fit and available guys for Test series, particularly something as big as Ashes.”
It is to be noted Josh Hazlewood and Ashton Agar are other players to be ruled out of the Border Gavaskar Trophy.
