T20 World Cup 2024: David Warner Confirms International Retirement After Australia Exit. After a 15-year international career, veteran Australian batter David Warner’s professional career has come to an end following Men in Yellow’s exit from the ongoing T20 World Cup. India caused their elimination when Australia lost to them. As a result, the situation became more delicate with the knockout stage depending on the outcome of the match between Afghanistan and Bangladesh.

Nonetheless, the victory of Afghanistan and their qualification resulted in the elimination of the Aussies, which put David Warner to international Retirement. Warner has progressively retired, playing his last ODI in the World Cup final victory over India and his last Test against Pakistan taking place in January 2024.

The only runs David Warner made were six runs before his Retirement in the last match. He was angry with himself for not playing correctly. No one applauded or gave him a guard of honour on his last day as a cricketer. This abrupt and quiet exit highlighted the quick and calm end of 15 years of wins and losses. Warner’s departure leaves a significant gap in the Australian team and serves as a reminder of the unpredictable nature of sports.

Josh Hazlewood: We’ll Miss Him Around the Group

After the match against India, journalists questioned Josh Hazlewood, one of Australia’s star fast bowlers, about his reactions. He narrated the team was not able to celebrate on their own until they got the Afghanistan-Bangladesh game result due to David Warner’s amazing career. To be specific, Afghanistan’s win over Bangladesh led to the end of Warner’s career.

“Nothing has been said yet. Josh Hazlewood told ESPNcricinfo that they might mention it after this press conference and before the evening game, but he believed they would wait until after the game to acknowledge David Warner’s incredible career. “We’ll miss him around the group, both on and off the field. His all-format career has been amazing.

“We’ve had a taste of life without him, starting gradually with Test and ODI cricket, and now T20. We’ve gotten somewhat used to it in New Zealand. It’s always different when you lose a player who’s been there for so long, but we’ll move on and push forward,” he added.
