The opening bat first burst onto the international scene in 2009 with a thrilling 89 off 43 in a T20I against South Africa. Since, Warner has racked up over 17 000 runs across the three formats. This year, Warner returns to the Big Bash for the Sydney Thunder as part of winding down his career, seemingly set to culminate at the 2024 T20I World cup in June next year. "[This will] most likely be my last year of my international career," said the 36-year-old as per Sky Sports. "I've got my sights set on the 2024 [T20] World Cup as well, so finishing in the Americas, that'd be nice to top it off with a win over there, pending selection." Warner's Australia teammate, Aaron Finch, told Fox that the swashbuckling left-hander will be an asset to the franchise. "David is a world-class player, as good as anyone who has ever been in the T20 format, so it is huge for the tournament and huge for Sydney Thunder," quipped Finch. Warner's place in the Australian Test team had come under fire after a run of relatively poor form. But last month, following his double hundred in the second Test against the Proteas, Warner squashed any talk of retirement. "I've still got that hunger and determination because every time I rock up to training, I've got it," he told the press at the time. "People keep telling me, 'you'll know when it's time'. I haven't really felt that at all yet."
