The T20 World Cup is scheduled to happen in June 2024. After winning this series against West Indies, they will play a T20 series against New Zealand on Kiwi soil. This was Australia’s final home T20 series before the World Cup. David Warner is all set to retire from international cricket after the T20 World Cup. And he marked his final T20 appearance on home turf in this series.
After the match, he said, “Good to see the boys play. I’ve got a lot of time off after the next series in New Zealand before the IPL and then to get ready for the T20 World Cup. Great to spend quality time with my kids and just be home. I was surprised that an opening bowler bowling 145+ wasn’t trying to get me out. The boundaries aren’t too big in the Caribbean. I’m well and truly done, We’ve got so many youngsters, it’s time for them to do the job.”
