The Australian opener David Warner has hinted that his retirement from test cricket might not be too far away and after the next year’s Ashes series concludes in England, he might bid adieu to the longest format of the game.
But, Warner insisted that he would continue playing white ball cricket even after his test retirement because he loves the white ball game. According to Warner, looking at the schedule and the next assignments in all three formats of the game, the Ashes series is scheduled first, followed by the 2023 ODI World Cup and the 2024 T20 World Cup.
There is an ODI series scheduled between England and Australia from Thursday, just 3 days after the conclusion of the T20 World Cup 2022 final, and Warner was talking to the reporters ahead of the start of that series where he said that he has no intentions of retiring from T20 cricket in near future and after the 2023 ODI World Cup, he wants to play for Australia in the 2024 T20 World Cup as well.
David Warner hinted he will retire from Tests after Ashes and try to play in the 2024 T20 World Cup.

David Warner is currently the undisputed first choice as Australian opener in both ODI and T20I cricket
David Warner, at this point in time, is the first-choice opener for Australia in both forms of white ball cricket and with Aaron Finch retiring from ODI cricket now, Warner’s spot in 50-over cricket is under no scrutiny at all, at least till the next ODI World Cup. But with the emergence of Cameron Green as an opener in T20 cricket and Aaron Finch still being active in the shortest format, it’s hard to say how cemented Warner’s opening spot is in Australia’s T20I team.
The left-hander is, however, still considered one of the best T20 openers in the world and is currently contracted with the IPL team Delhi Capitals at a hefty salary of close to 7 crore INR. He is likely to be retained by the Capitals for the next IPL as well.
