Melbourne: The World Test Championship (WTC) final match between Team India and Australia is to be played at the Oval in London from June 7. All eyes are on this title match, but Australia's legendary batsman David Warner has started looking beyond that. Just before the final match, Warner has made the picture of his future in Test cricket clear.
Warner, however, seems ready to retire from this format in January next year. He has announced this just before the WTC final. Warner, who has been going through a tumultuous phase of his form for the last several months, has been in the headlines in recent weeks. There was even a discussion in Cricket Australia whether he should be selected for this title match against India and then for the Ashes series against England.
Warner got a place in the team for both these matches, but in the eyes of the Australian selectors, his future will depend on Warner's performance. Now Warner himself has made it clear that he will not remain in this format for long. Warner, a left-handed opener, said he would like to end his career in this format with a Test match against Pakistan in Sydney in January 2024.
