David Warner has been struggling for runs in Tests of late
Australia have high hopes from Warner in WTC final
Beckenham (UK). Australia’s explosive opener David Warner has made a big announcement regarding Test cricket before the WTC final against India. Warner has told when and where he wants to pause his Test career. He disclosed this on Saturday. Left hand batter Warner can prove to be a headache for India in the WTC Final. The Kangaroo team will expect Warner to get off to a fast start in the final of the World Test Championship. Warner recently captained Delhi Capitals in the 16th edition of IPL where he stood ahead for his team like a one man army.
David Warner wants to end his Test career against Pakistan in January at his home ground Sydney Cricket Ground. Talking before the practice session, Warner, who is preparing for next week’s World Test Championship final against India, expressed hope that the Sydney Test against Pakistan will be his last Test match.

Warner has struggled for runs in Tests in recent times
The dashing opener, however, has struggled to score runs in the longer format in recent times and his place in the Test team is not assured. Warner said, ‘You have to score runs to stay in the team. Let me say from the beginning that (2024) T20 World Cup will probably be my last match in international cricket. If I score runs here and continue to play in Australia as well, I can definitely say that I will not play in the series against West Indies. If I score runs in the World Test Championship final and the Ashes and get selected in the team for the Pakistan series, I would definitely like to end my career there.
Australia to play series against England after WTC
Australia has to play a five-Test series against England after the World Test Championship final. Australia will play a three-Test series against Pakistan later this year, the last match of which will be played in Sydney from January 3. Warner started his international cricket career without playing a first class match. He has scored a triple century in Test cricket. Warner is one of Australia’s leading openers in all three formats of cricket.
