David Warner announces ODI retirement

David Warner has confirmed his ODI retirement alongside the Test format by the end of the New Year’s Test in Sydney. The Player who has two 50-over World trophies in his cabinet, has said that he will be playing in the 2025 Champions Trophy if needed.

The player is set to play in the third and final test in the Pakistan tour of Australia 2023-24 on January 03 at Sydney Cricket Ground and the hosts lead the series 2-0. The 37-year-old is set to retire from Test cricket after the third Test.

On this occasion, the player’s ODI Retirement announcement has shocked the cricketing world. “I’m definitely retiring from one-day cricket as well,” said Warner at the SCG.

“That was something that I had said through the World Cup, get through that, and winning it in India, I think that’s a massive achievement.

“So I’ll make that decision today, to retire from those forms, which does allow me to go and play some other leagues around the world and sort of get the one-day team moving forward a little bit.”

“I know there’s a Champions Trophy coming up. If I’m playing decent cricket in two years’ time and I’m around and they need someone, I’m going to be available.”

The decision came out two days before the SCG Test. Warner will be ending his career as Australia’s sixth-highest run-getter in ODIs.

He scored 6932 runs from 161 matches at an average of 45.30 and a strike rate of 97.26. He has 22 Hundreds in the format and is behind Ricky Ponting who stands with 29 in the list of Australia top top-profile batters.

“It was a decision that I was very, very comfortable with,” he said. “To win in India, from where we were, was absolutely amazing.

“When we lost two games in a row in India, the bond just got stronger with each other and it’s not by fluke or by chance that we were able to get to where we were.”

“The heroics of Maxi [Glenn Maxwell], the captaincy, and the skills and execution of the way that we played against India was phenomenal, and not to dismiss the Kolkata semi-final as well.”

Recently, Warner had scored 164 runs in the first innings of the test where Australia won the match by 360 runs. He will be playing in the T20 format and is only one game away from 100 games conceding all formats. He expects to play in the ILT20 for Dubai Capitals.
