Aims to play T20 World Cup 2024: David Warner

Written by Vipin Darwade

Australian batter David Warner said that he aims to take part in the 2024 edition of the T20 World Cup to be held in West Indies and the United States of America (USA). Warner is among Australia’s most experienced batters and is currently taking part in the World Cup at home.

Last year, he became the Player of the Tournament after the Aussies won the trophy for the maiden time by beating New Zealand in the final.

“I’ll keep playing T20s. I’ll look to try and get to the 2024 World Cup,” Warner was quoted as saying to the Sydney Morning Herald.

The 35-year-old Warner also said that he will take a call on playing Test cricket with a view to taking part in the 50-over World Cup on Indian soil next year.

“And I’ve got my goal set on playing next year in the 50-over World Cup (in India). So for now, we’ll see how much Test cricket I’ve got left in me after this summer coming up and winter away. From there, that will make up my mind whether I’ll continue to play Test cricket and all three forms,” he stated.

“I think the longevity in the game is an important thing. If you want to play all three forms, you’ve got to remain fit and strong. And I’ve managed to do that,” Warner added.
