David Warner is currently busy preparing for the upcoming World Test Championship (WTC) final against India at the Oval, starting from 7-11 June. But, ahead of this clash, Warner has come with a statement that he is hoping for an SCG farewell from Test cricket in January 2024. Australia will play the last of the three-match Test series at SCG from 3-7 January 2024 against Pakistan.   

While talking to reporters in Beckenham, Warner said: “I’ve always said the [2024 T20] World Cup will be my final game, but I think I probably owe it to myself and my family. If I can score runs here, continue to play back in Australia, I can definitely say I won’t be playing that West Indies [Test] series. If I get through this and I can make the Pakistan series, I will definitely finish up then.”

“I want to play that 2024 World Cup” – David Warner

“For me I’ve always played every game as if it’s my last. That’s my style of cricket. I enjoy being around the guys, I love being part of the team, trying to be that ball of energy in the group. I want to just keep working as hard as I can to get there,” he further added.

“Going back 12 months, [the schedule] looked very daunting. Whether or not you’re going to play this Test before this series, given there is a World Cup as well, and we have South Africa as well. And then cricket on the back end of the World Cup in India. Leading into a home summer it’s going to be exhausting and I think the boys, rightfully so, the selectors have been speaking to them about the series that we are priding ourselves on. This [WTC] championship, the Ashes, then the World Cup, the big one,” Warner said.

“I want to play that 2024 World Cup, it’s something at the backend of my mind. We’ve got a lot of cricket before that. And then I think it stops from February. For me, then I have to play the IPL, some of the other franchise leagues and then get into the rhythm to play that, in June. Will be a bit of cricket around to play,” David Warner concluded.
