Australia opener David Warner has indicated that he is likely to retire from Test cricket in the next 12 months. His announcement comes after Australia failed to win the ICC T20 World Cup at home. They were eliminated from the Super 12 stage.

Speaking on Triple M’s Deadset Legends, Warner said Test cricket will be the first format to fall off.

“Test cricket will probably be the first one to fall off. It could be my last 12 months in red-ball cricket. The T20 World Cup is 2024, the (one-day) World Cup next year are my priority.”

Warner loves T20 cricket and wants to be a part Australia’s setup for the 2024 T20 World Cup.

“I love T20 cricket. I want to play in the 2024 World Cup. All those who are speaking against me, look out. Be careful what you wish for,” Warner added.

He is willing to work with young cricketers. “I will pass on my knowledge to young kids. When I play in the Big Bash [for Sydney Thunder], I will help the young guns of the team,” he added.
