David Warner has expressed his willingness to participate in the Champions Trophy next year if called upon by the Australian team.

In an Instagram post, Warner confirmed his retirement from international cricket but left the door open for a potential return to the Champions Trophy in Pakistan. He expressed it was an honour to represent Australia and mentioned his plans to continue playing franchise cricket. Warner also conveyed his gratitude to fans and teammates for their support throughout his career.

“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 love without the fans, so thanks. I will continue to play franchise cricket for a while, and I am also open to playing for Aus in the Champions trophy if selected. To the players and staff, thanks for putting up with me. No more WhatsApp junk, your ears are now going to be free of my voice. This team has had unbelievable success the Last few years and long may this continue. Pat Cummins, Andrew old Mac and staff have got this,” wrote Warner on Instagram.

Warner might be called for Champions Trophy

Warner played a crucial role in Australia’s ODI World Cup victory in India last year, ending as the team’s highest run-scorer with 535 runs in 11 matches, including two centuries and two half-centuries. Given the Champions Trophy will be held in similar conditions, Australia might consider bringing Warner back for the tournament.

Warner made his debut for Australia in 2009, starting as a T20I specialist before becoming an integral part of the team across all formats. His career includes 112 Tests, 161 ODIs, and 110 T20Is, amassing over 18,000 runs with 49 centuries and 98 half-centuries. His contributions have been significant, and his potential return for the Champions Trophy could be a strategic move for Australia.
