‘Chapter Closed!’ David Warner retires from his splendid international career with a heartfelt Instagram post


David Warner, the Australian legend, has retired from all forms of cricket over the last year. The legendary cricketer had already retired from the longest format of the game and also took his last go at the ODI format after Australia won the World Cup for the 6th time.

The veteran Australian retired from the shortest format of the game, the T20Is, after Australia crashed out of the Super-8 stage of the T20 World Cup 2024 without making it to the semi-finals after their loss to Afghanistan.

The Australian legend retires after a long-spanning career of 15 years with several great achievements. Warner retires with 18995 runs in international cricket alongside his commendable 49 centuries.

With several questions raised over what will be the future of David Warner with Australia—shall he play the next T20 World Cup in 2026?—Warner answers it all with his Instagram post.

The veteran cricketer is very often seen active on social media, and it is where he made an official announcement.

“Chapter Closed!! It’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. It’s been an honor 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. My wife and my girls, who sacrificed so much, thank you for all your support. No person will ever know what we’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 do without the love from our fans, so thanks.”

This is what Warner ended his retirement post with.

The veteran retires with some unimaginable records for the men from the Kangaroo Islands, making him the second Aussie after great Ricky Ponting to have achieved such a feat. However, do not worry, pals, as David Warner would still be seen with his explosive batting style honoring the pitches at every possible franchise he features for and he also keeps his chances open for the Champions trophy, next year, saying if he is picked for the same.
