Big Bash League (BBL) side Sydney Thunders are optimistic about the return of southpaw David Warner to the side for the 2024-25 edition. In total, the explosive opener has made 8 appearances for the franchise, scoring 149 runs at an average of 21.28. However, Warner is likely to miss a part of the tournament due to his broadcasting commitments during the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and the ILT20 where he is a part of the Dubai Capitals.

David Warner to return to BBL

Confidence scale high, process to be followed on that. He’s a champion of the club, a long-standing member and hasn’t really had the opportunities in his career to just live and breathe that for a full summer. So I’m really keen to make that happen,” Trent Copeland, the manager of Sydney Thunder told ESPN CricInfo.

What does Warner have to say about his return?

I definitely am keen to pursue playing Big Bash next year. There’s going to be conversations behind the scenes to allow me to do that. Obviously I’ve joined the Fox commentary team next year during the Test series against India, which I’m looking forward to. So I would like to play [the BBL] in and around the commentary stuff. I’ve just got to make sure that I’m, one, playing to the best of my ability and, two, not hindering the team’s performances or upsetting the balance of the team,” Warner said, as per ESPN CricInfo.
