If I can get through this (the WTC finals and the subsequent Ashes campaign) and take on Pakistan in the series, I’m definitely done then, Warner is quoted as saying by Cricket.com.au.
I probably owe it to myself and my family – if I can score points here and keep playing in Australia, I can definitely say I won’t be playing in the West Indies series.
Southern hopes to continue playing white-ball cricket for Australia until the 2024 T20 World Cup in the West Indies and USA.
You have to score balls. I always said the World Cup (2024) would probably be my last game, Warner said.
Warner, 36, endured a tough tour of India earlier this year, and while the Delhi Capitals skipper has shown offensive intent with 516 points in 14 games in the IPL, he will have a tough time in the fickle English environment.
Warner, apart from a superb double hundred in a match against South Africa last December, has been struggling with runs of late, scoring just 26 in three Test matches on a recent tour of India before returning home with an injury.
He also had a forgettable campaign during the last Ash, returning with a 9.50 average, the worst for an opener who played 10 innings.
