The southpaw has already delivered enough goods for the national cricket team and will be willing to do so in the next year too as he targets the 2023 T20 World Cup as a career farewell.

The 36-year-old admitted that the next 12 months might be the end of his international cricket career. Meanwhile, the veteran cricketer returned to Australia’s premier T20 competition, KFC Big Bash League.

The left-handed batter will be representing Sydney Thunder in the ongoing BBL, in what will be his first-ever appearance in the competition after nine long years. He will mark his presence against Perth Scorchers at Sydney Showground Stadium on Friday night.

For the unversed, David Warner penned a new two-year deal with the Sydney Thunder franchise in late August in a bid to return to Australia’s premier T20 competition for the first time since December 2013.

Australia’s superstar who has done incredibly well in the other T20 leagues across the world has appeared in only three games in the Big Bash League. The southpaw scored 152 runs at an exceptional strike rate of 180.95, registering his best score of 102*. He smashed one century and one fifty to his name in this league.
