Australian opening batsman confirmed his plans to retire from T20I cricket after playing a brilliant innings for his team in Perth: Australian legend opening batsman David Warner has confirmed that he has played his last international match on home soil and will play for his country at the conclusion of this year’s ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

While Warner had already announced his retirement from the Test and ODI arena, moments after claiming the Player of the Series award during Australia’s 2-1 series win, the left-handed batsman announced that he would be retiring from his country. His time is running out in the shortest format possible. Victory over the West Indies.

“Very well done and really done,” Warner said after the match after scoring a quickfire half-century in Australia’s 37-run defeat to the Caribbean side in Perth on Tuesday.

“It is time for the youth to come forward and showcase their talent. We have immense talent here. We are well positioned for the future.”

Warner will travel to New Zealand for a three-match T20I series starting later this month and also plans to be a part of Australia’s T20 World Cup in June, when the 20-over tournament will be held in the USA and the Caribbean.

The 37-year-old showed he still has the potential to make a mark in the T20 World Cup by top-scoring for Australia in the loss against the West Indies, with the opener contributing 81 runs from just 49 balls before being dismissed by Andre. Gave. Russell on the boundary.

Captain Mitch Marsh paid tribute to Warner and his impact on Australian cricket across all formats of the game.

“Obviously it’s been an amazing career for him,” Marsh said. “I think it suits him to finish the way he did (with that innings). “What a servant to Australian cricket. Unfortunately we couldn’t get him a win.”
