Australia‘s exit from the tournament got confirmed right as Afghanistan defeated Bangladesh in the last match for the league stage. With this, Australian legend David Warner is looking towards retirement from international cricket.

Warner to exit from International Cricket

Earlier this year, 37-year-old Warner announced that the T20 World Cup in 2024 would be his final tournament, following his retirement from Tests and ODIs in January. Warner hit 6 runs in his last international innings as Australia was defeated by India by 24 runs in their last Super 8 game.

David had already announced his retirement from test cricket and ODI cricket back in January this year. “I’ve got to give back to the family and also on the back of that [World Cup] I’m definitely retiring from one-day cricket as well It’ll help the one-day team move along a bit,” an emotional Warner had said earlier on his retirement.

“I’ve been able to play with him, I’ve been able to coach him in the IPL the last couple of years and I really enjoy his company. So he should be very proud of what he’s done.” Ponting added.

Elaborating on the conversation between the two, Ponting, who was also the captain of the Australian cricket team when David joined, said

“(I) put my arm around him. I said, ‘…just take a moment tonight to sit back by yourself and reflect on what’s been an unbelievable career across all three formats for Australia’,” Ponting was quoted as saying in ICC’s Digital Daily show.
