Australia’s aggressive opener David Warner has indicated his retirement from Test cricket next year. However, he may continue to play in the limited overs format. Warner made this comment after Australia were knocked out of the T20 World Cup in the first round. “Test cricket will be the first format I can leave,” Warner said at an event. This will probably be my last 12 months in Test cricket. Australia has a busy 2023 Test cricket schedule which includes the Border Gavaskar Trophy in India in February-March.
