Senior Australian cricketer David Warner swiftly shut down a social media user who suggested that Australian players would become more arrogant after their 2023 World Cup victory. Responding to the post on X (formerly Twitter), Warner questioned the troll’s basis for claiming the players’ increased arrogance, asking if the user had personally met any Australian players or if it was merely an opportunity to vent frustration.
The user, tagging Warner in the post, wrote: “@davidwarner3 In the past, Australian players were very arrogant, but after winning this World Cup, they will become more arrogant.”
In response, David Warner countered, “Did you meet some of the players, or is this just a keyboard opportunity to vent.”
Australia secured a convincing six-wicket victory over India in the 2023 World Cup final, securing their sixth ODI World Cup. Warner emerged as the leading run-scorer for Australia in the tournament, amassing 535 runs from 11 matches at an impressive average of 48.63, including two centuries and two fifties.
Looking ahead, Warner is expected to retire from Test cricket in January 2024. Australia is set to host Pakistan in a three-match Test series, with the first match starting on December 14 in Perth. Warner expressed his desire to retire after playing the third Test against Pakistan in Sydney, stating, “If I can get through this (WTC final and ensuing Ashes campaign) and make the Pakistan series, I will definitely finish up then.”
With 109 Tests under his belt, Warner has accumulated 8487 runs at an average of 44.43, boasting 25 centuries and 36 fifties in the format.
