One of Australia’s most dangerous Left-handed opening batter David Warner after getting ruled out of the remaining 2 Border-Gavaskar Tests at Holkar and Narendra Modi stadium expressed his desire to continue playing cricket and hopes to stage a come back in the upcoming Ashes during the English summer.
The 36-year-old pocket size dynamite is having a rough time in Red-ball cricket. His string of poor performances and inconsistency started from 2020 right after he scored 111 against New Zealand at Sydney cricket ground. Ever since that century, Warner failed to reach triple figures 11 times and twice he got out on 90s.
However, he ended his century drought last year against South Africa as he smacked an outstanding 200 against South Africa. But since then, Warner has failed to score more than 15 runs in Test cricket. In last 3 innings, Warner had scores of 1, 10 & 15.

He failed to bat in the 2nd innings at Arun Jaitley Stadium after suffering a concussion in the previous innings. The 36-year-old came across another setback after getting sidelined for an elbow injury. He has been pulled out of the Border-Gavaskar trophy by Cricket Australia but he is hopeful of returning in time against England, which starts from July 16.
“I’ve always said I’m playing to 2024; if the selectors feel that I’m not worthy of my spot. I’ve got the next 12 months, a lot of cricket’s ahead for the team and if I can keep scoring runs and putting my best foot forward for the team and I can help my spot, it’d be great for the team and I can push on to the white-ball stuff.”
