Candice Warner has revealed that her husband David was happy to risk a fairytale farewell in front of home fans in January for the chance to hold onto England’s upcoming Ashes series.
Having returned home from the tour of India early through injury after scoring just 1, 10 and 15 – on the back of two utterly disappointing years in Test cricket – many Aussie legends are wondering if the 36-year-old still deserves a spot in the first eleven. ten.
He will go down as one of Australia’s greatest openers, and currently has 8,158 runs from 103 Tests, but his recent record has left a lot to be desired of late.
With the exception of his double century against a weak South African attack in the Boxing Day Test, Warner only made 50 in 20 innings, scoring his last 100 in January, 2020.
He’s averaged 29.48 since 2021 – well below his career average of 45 – but more worryingly, he hit just 95 from 10 innings in the UK’s 2019 Ashes, which included three ducks and seven dismissals for his opponent, Stewart. cold.

But Candice said David never considered retiring in the New Year’s Test earlier this year despite still riding the 200 dry spell, because he had one eye on the Ashes, which take place in England across June and July.
David still had a burning desire to open up the batting for Australia. There are still many things that he wants to achieve that he has not achieved Yahoo Sports.
And obviously one of those will be putting in the best possible performance in England against the Dukes’ ball. I don’t know if the coach and coach allow him to do that. But I know he still has that desire and that hunger to keep going.
He likes to be out on his terms but you are not always given that opportunity and David fully understands that.
He could easily have retired after this year’s Sydney Test, but that’s not what he wants. He still wants to contribute to the team in India and stay there in the Ashes and then we’ll just see.
The British made Dukes ball is hand stitched and is considered more vibrant than the machine made Australian Kookaburra ball.
However, Australian legend Ricky Ponting believes Warner missed the perfect time to retire, and that “knife is sharpening” for selectors before the Ashes.

“For him to finish the way he deserves, the obvious thing for me was to pull the pin after Sydney. He took his 200 in Melbourne, played his 100th Test, played his 101st Test in Sydney, his home ground and probably ends there,” he told RSN radio earlier. from this month.
But it is up to him. The only currency you have as the batsman is the one to play and if you don’t score you leave yourself open.
This has happened to all of us. When you reach a certain age and your figure seems to be dropping a bit, the knives are sharpened and it won’t take long.
After Travis Head made the opening point his own with a strong finish for India’s series despite being devilishly dismissed for the first Test, Clarke said the selectors were now stuck between a rock and a hard place.
“You look ridiculous now,” Clark said.
Because we’re all ex-players and fans, ‘Okay. It seems that even if I don’t agree with Travis Head’s pick or not, I respect that they say horses for courses. Well, you’ll go with that, cool.
Photographed at Ladies’ Day at Rosehill Racecourse earlier this month, Candice has assured cricket fans that David will continue on the T20 circuit for years to come.
First Test in England, how did they choose David Warner? How do they justify it if they choose Dave Warner now?
Candice was quick to allay fears that Warner would lose the game regardless, saying he would play for T20 franchises all over the world.
Not only does BBL Down Under – which struggles to match it on dollar with the major leagues, the former Iron Woman who has three daughters with the cricket star mentioned – plays in the more exotic and less traditional leagues of Dubai, America, South Africa and Pakistan, as well as the IPL, where he is universally loved.
“Even if he retires from international cricket for Australia, you will see David playing cricket for a few more years to come,” Candice said.
