Legendary Australian opening batter David Warner has announced his retirement from international cricket. The 37-year-old left-handed batter, who made his debut for the Australian team on January 11, 2009, during a T20I match against South Africa in Melbourne, last played for the six-time ODI World Cup winners on June 24 during the T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 match against India at Daren Sammy Stadium in St. Lucia.

Warner, who is the second-leading run scorer for the Australian team in international cricket, took to Instagram on Monday (July 8) to confirm his departure but also added that he is open to making a comeback if the Aussies need him for the ICC Champions Trophy 2025, which is scheduled to take place in Pakistan from February 19 to March 9.

โ€œChapter closed!! Itโ€™s been an unbelievable experience to play at the highest level for such a long period. Australia was my team. The majority of my career was at the international level. Itโ€™s been an honour to be able to do this. 100+ games in all formats is my highlight. I want to say thanks to everyone out there who has made this possible,โ€ Warner wrote.

โ€œMy wife and my girls, who sacrificed so much, thank you for all your support. No person will ever know what weโ€™ve been through. For all the cricket fans out there, I truly hope I have entertained you and changed cricket, especially tests, in a way where we scored a bit faster than others. We cannot do what we love without the fans, so thanks.โ€

โ€œI will continue to play franchise cricket for a while, and I am also open to playing for Aus in the Champions trophy if selected. To the players and staff, thanks for putting up with me. No more whatโ€™s app junk, your ears are now going to be free of my voice. This team has had unbelievable success the Last few years and long may this continue. Pat cummins, Andrew old Mac, and staff have got this. #cricket #australia #neverwriteoffahouso #matraville,โ€ he added.

The legendary batter is one of the five cricketers to have won an ICC trophy in all three formats of the game for Australia and is the only Aussie to play 100 matches in Tests, ODIs, and T20Is. He finished his career as the leading run scorer for Australia in the shortest format of the game.
