David Warner Retires From International Cricket

The cricketing world bid farewell to one of its most dynamic players as David Warner officially retired from international cricket. Warner’s illustrious 15-year career with the Australian national team came to an end following Australia’s elimination from the T20 World Cup in the Super Eight phase.

The Final Chapter

Warner’s retirement unfolded in stages:

  • Final ODI: November 2023, World Cup final victory over India
  • Last Test: January 2024, against Pakistan
  • T20 Swansong: T20 World Cup 2024

A Low-Key Farewell

Warner’s final international appearance came against India in the T20 World Cup. The match proved to be an anticlimactic end to a stellar career:

  • Warner scored just 6 runs off 6 balls
  • He was dismissed by Arshdeep Singh, caught at slip by Suryakumar Yadav
  • There was no guard of honor or standing ovation, as it was unclear if this would be his last game
