    I’ve got to give back to the family: Warner

    Warner is willing to join the Australian squad for the 2025 Champions Trophy

    Warner was just 68 runs short of scoring 7000 ODI runs

David Warner who would play his last international test match in the Sydney Cricket Ground against Pakistan starting from January 3rd has also announced that he would also retire from One Day Internationals (ODIs). “I’ve got to give back to the family. That (ODI retirement) was something I had said through the World Cup, get through that and winning that in India is a massive achievement,” David Warner stated during a press conference in Sydney.

He however qualified this statement by reiterating that based on the circumstance and the necessity he would still be willing to join the Australian squad for the 2025 Champions Trophy. “I know there’s a Champions Trophy coming up and if I’m still playing decent cricket in two years’ time, and they need someone, I’m going to be available,” he added.

Warner was just 68 runs short of scoring 7000 ODI runs. He is however not the type of player who is keen on milestones and records. Australia had once declared when he was 335 not out in the Adelaide Test Ground in 2019 against Pakistan. Although he could have aimed to break the test record for most runs in an innings which is currently held by Brian Lara who scored 400 against England, the team prioritised giving the bowlers the new ball under swinging conditions with the batsmen having tired legs. The move paid off with Australia claiming 6 wickets in 35 overs before the close of play.
