Australia's veteran opening batsman David Warner has retired from Test cricket following the just-concluded Sydney Test against Pakistan on Saturday, January 6. The senior one received an overwhelming welcome from the crowd at home at the Sydney Cricket Ground, with spectators also stepping onto the pitch to take part in the post-match presentation. Fans gathered in droves to see Warner in white one last time.

In David Warner's last series, Australia achieved a stunning 3-0 victory over Pakistan. The southpaw took a stylish bow and celebrated his 37th half-century in the format. Warner scored 57 runs off 75 balls in the fourth innings and the hosts easily reached the target of 130 runs with an eight-wicket victory.

In his post-Test speech, David Warner spoke with enthusiasm of his excitement at ending his Test career with Australia's overall series win against the Men in Green.

Warner highlighted Australia's confident performances in international cricket and pointed out how the team has enjoyed some important wins in recent times.

He said -

"It's pretty much a dream come true. You win 3-0 and cap off what's been a great 18 months to 2 years for the Australian cricket team. World Test Championship win, Ashes series draw, and then the World Cup. To come here and finish 3-0 is an outstanding achievement. I'm proud to be with a bunch of great cricketers here.

The senior batter also praised Australia's pace attack, suggesting that they put in rigorous hard work in training. Joking about not having to face them again in the nets, Warner added:

"These guys, they work their backsides off, the engine room - the three big quicks plus Mitchell Marsh - they work tirelessly in the nets and in the gym. Credit to them, the physios, the staff behind that ... is outstanding. You look at them, they are amazing, I don't have to face them ever again in the nets, which I don't do anyway, so that helps."

It is worth mentioning that David Warner also recently announced his retirement from ODI cricket with immediate effect. He scored 8786 runs in his 112 Tests and 6932 runs in his 161 ODIs.
