The Australian team will play a three-match Test series against Pakistan on its home soil from December 14 under the captaincy of Pat Cummins. Regarding this, Cricket Australia announced the team for the first Test match to be played at Perth on the morning of 3 December, in which David Warner’s name is also included. It is believed that this could be the last series of David Warner’s Test career. Now former Australian fast bowler Mitchell Johnson has expressed his displeasure over his selection and has targeted chief selector George Bailey.

The desire to play the farewell test is being given importance

David Warner has not seen the kind of performance that everyone expects from him in the Test format for a long time. Even in Ashes 2023, Warner’s bat remained almost silent. Warner had expressed his desire to play his farewell Test before the home Test series against Pakistan. Now a similar suspicion is being raised regarding his selection in the team that this could be his last Test series. At the same time, Johnson has targeted this very thing in which he has said in his column written in ‘The West Australian’ that why his desire to play the farewell test is being given so much importance. Why is an opener being given a chance to play the farewell test, whose average in the last 36 innings has been 26.74.

Mitchell Johnson also mentioned the Sandpaper Gate scandal in his column and wrote that the player was involved in a controversy which brought disrepute to the country. But the player who was at the center of this controversy never accepted his mistake. The same arrogance is visible in expressing his desire for the farewell test which was visible during that incident.

David Warner can play his last test in Sydney

Cricket Australia has just announced the team for the first Test to be played in Perth. In such a situation, there is still suspense in the announcement of the team for the last 2 Test matches, but it is expected that Warner can be included in the match to be played in Sydney from 3 to 7 January and this will be the last match of his career. A test match is expected. This is Warner’s home ground. Talking about the team, Lance Morris has been included as a new player in this 14-member team.
