Veteran Australia opener David Warner has confirmed that he will retire after the T20 World Cup 2024. Warner revealed his decision on his 100th T20I appearance while playing against West Indies.

One of the greatest all-format players - Warner has already retired from ODI and Test cricket. Warner's final ODI outing came against India in the World Cup Final 2023 where Australia beat the hosts to lift the trophy. Warner called time on his Test career with the home series against Pakistan where he hit a century and a half century.

Warner set the tone for Australia on the day, hitting 70 off just 36 balls. Warner's attack and a late onslaught from Tim David helped the side reach a total of 213 runs.

The batter earned the player of the match award for his riveting innings that helped Australia post a massive total in the first innings of the game. Australia bowlers did a

neat job despite a spirited chase from the West Indian team and won the game by 11 runs on a flat batting track.

"Pleasing to get the win on the board. Was a nice wicket to bat on and you have to make the most of those. Feel great and refreshed, I’m pumped. I want to play the T20 World Cup and finish there and it’s a good journey we’ve got going for the next 6 months. Pretty much the same squad going to New Zealand so it’s important we win there as well," Warner said at the post match presentation ceremony.

David Warner will have a chance to retire as the world champion in all three formats if Australia are able to lift the T20 World Cup 2024. Warner won the World Test Championship and ODI World Cup title under the captaincy of Pat Cummins and will hope to put on a good show in the tournament, set to be jointly hosted by the Caribbean Islands and the United States of America in June.
