Before the Finals of the World Test Championship against India, David Warner surprised everyone by announcing his Test retirement date

Opener of the Australia Cricket Team, David Warner, has dropped his retirement bombshell from test cricket only four days before the start of the much-awaited finals of the 2023 World Test Championship against the India Cricket Team at the Oval. On Saturday, Warner did reveal that he had decided to put an end to his long and prestigious test career. He is planning to say goodbye to the longest format of cricket at the end of the upcoming Australian summer.
