David Warner, an experienced Australian opener, has stated that his final international match on Australian soil was the third T20 International against the West Indies. Warner stated that he will not continue to play for Australia after the T20 World Cup in 2024, highlighting the need for the next generation to step up and demonstrate their skills.

Seems like our childhood is retiring -

Despite hitting an incredible 81 runs off just 49 balls, Warner, who had been in incredible form, was unable to lead Australia to a series sweep as the West Indies won the third T20 international by a score of 37 runs. Warner has already resigned from other forms; on January 1, 2024, he left ODI cricket, and on January 6, 2024, he left Test cricket. Now, he is retiring from T20Is.

Warner has stated that he is happy with his career and is prepared to hand the responsibility to the younger generation. The seasoned opener stated that he would play in the Indian Premier League (IPL) following the series against New Zealand, and then travel to the Caribbean for the T20 World Cup. Warner emphasized that this is the time for young players to showcase their talent and step up in their future.

What he said?

It was good to have a break and play the franchise stuff. I've got a lot of time off after the New Zealand series, and go to the IPL before we embark on a World Cup in the Caribbean. Was quite surprised an opening bowler at 145kph and swings it not trying to get me out. Go to the Caribbean, the boundaries aren't too big there. I'm well and truly done, it's time for the youngsters to come through and show their talent
~Warner said after winning the Player of the Series award.

Warner's presence will be vital for Australia as they prepare to play against Oman on June 6th in the T20 World Cup 2024. Warner, who was a member of the squad that won the ODI World Cup and the World Test Championship, is looking forward to helping Australia achieve as his remarkable career draws to an end and maybe retiring as a world champion in all forms.
