David Warner Lost his Baggy Green Cap

The Australia opener has posted a video to reveal that his backpack had been lost in time while they transitioned between the second Test in Melbourne and the team arriving in Sydney.

David Warner is set to retire from Test and ODI cricket after the upcoming third Test in Pakistan’s Australia tour in 2023. On this occasion, the missing of the baggy green Australia Test cap has worried the player.

He posted the video as a last resort to recover his backpack in which he had kept his Test cap.

“Unfortunately someone has taken my backpack out of my actual luggage, which had my backpack and my girls’ presents in there,” Warner said on Tuesday.

“Inside this backpack was my baggy greens. It’s sentimental to me, it’s something that I’d love to have back in my hands walking out there come this week.

“If it’s the backpack that you really wanted, I have a spare one here. You won’t get into trouble. Please reach out to Cricket Australia or myself via my social media. I’m happy to give this to you if you return my baggy greens.”

“Qantas have said they checked their cameras and have not seen anyone open our bags and take the backpack, however they do have blind spots” Warner said.

“If you are the person, who was either working for the company driving it to and from the airport or working for Qantas and have, by chance, just wanted the backpack, I have one for [you]. I would be grateful if [these] were returned ASAP.”

On this occasion, Pakistan captain Shah Masood was surprised when he was told about the situation during the press conference at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Tuesday.

“There should be a country-wide search right now from the Australian Government. We might need the best of detectives to get that back,” Masood told reporters.

”(Warner) has been a great ambassador, and he deserves every bit of respect, every bit of celebration for his unbelievable career. He is an example to openers. Personally, love watching him bat but hopefully, that doesn’t happen for long in Sydney,” said Masood.

He noted that the Test cap is important because the longest format of the game.

“Test cricket is the pinnacle and the Test cap is special. The way the Australians look after their Test caps, they wear them with pride. Sometimes we have changed our caps in the past but for them, it’s the same Baggy Green.”

“I hope they find it. It’s the most precious thing for any cricketer, and I hope David Warner gets it back,” said Masood.

Australia led the series 2-0 and they will be playing their third and final test match against January 03 at Sydney Cricket Ground.
