Australian batting stalwart David Warner has no plans to retire from Test cricket, his agent has mentioned following calls from some former gamers that the cricketer assessment his stance. Warner was out for duck and scored three runs within the first Test towards South Africa at Brisbane, which the hosts received by six wickets inside two days. He final scored a Test century in January 2020 and previous to the primary Test towards the Proteas he had scores of 5, 48, 21 and 28 within the 4 innings this summer time. But Warner’s agent, James Erskine, mentioned he did not consider the opener will give up Test cricket on the conclusion of the three-Test sequence towards the Proteas at Sydney.
“No, it won’t be his last Test, I don’t think. It’s news to me if that’s the case,” Erskine was quoted as saying by Sydney Morning Herald on Tuesday.
Erskine added Warner had the tour of India and the 2023 Ashes in England in his sights.
Warner will develop into the 14th Australian to realize the 100-Test landmark when he performs the Boxing Day Test. His common in 10 Tests this 12 months is lower than 21 however Erskine felt runs are not far away for the 36-year-old.
“I personally think there’s runs around the corner for him. We’ll just see what happens. The big thing from Davey’s (Warner) point of view is that he has three young children.
“If your fundamental scenario is you’ve got to be away for 9 months, or eight months of the 12 months, it’s brutal. That would be the resolution, I believe, relying on how he finally ends up.
“He has lots of other interests other than cricket – but there has been no talk about that (retirement),” added Erskine.
Erskine felt Warner was carried out in by a few good deliveries from South African tempo bowler Kagiso Rabada within the opening Test at Brisbane.
“He has had a couple of brutal balls (from Rabada). At the end of the day, everyone goes through these quiet spells. You have got to take his career across the board,” Erskine mentioned.
“If you talk to all the great players out there, they say he is a great player. We’ll just have to see if he bounces back in Melbourne. He is a pretty tough nut, old David. I don’t think that (run drought) necessarily worries him,” Erskine added.
Former Australian all-rounder Simon O’Donnell had mentioned lately that Warner is not the Test participant he was once until about two years again and that the stalwart ought to presumably retire on the finish of the Sydney Test.
