‘Chokli kuch toh sharam kar le ab’ – Fans react as David Warner claims third T20I against West Indies to be his last T20I game at home

David Warner

David Warner has made a huge claim on his future in T20Is. After the end of the 3rd T20I against the West Indies at Perth, the star batter claimed that it was his last game at home in T20 cricket for Australia. The announcement of Warner shocked the fans who thought him to play a lot in the shortest format of the game for Australia. 

Last year, Warner announced his retirement from Test cricket in the early part. He set the series against Pakistan to be his last assignment in the longest format of the game. After Australia won the ODI WC 2023, Warner announced his retirement from ODIs as well. However, the Southpaw claimed himself to be available for Australia’s services in the Champions Trophy 2025. 

Warner claimed the motive behind his decision to focus on T20 cricket. He is likely to enjoy the last few years of his career playing for T20 leagues across the globe. In the third T20I, Warner scored 81 runs in 49 balls chasing a mammoth total of 221 runs at Optus Stadium. It seems like Warner has ended his last game at home on a terrific note as a batter. 

‘It’s time for the youngsters to come through and show their talent’ – David Warner

After the match, Warner arrived at the post-match conference. The star batter claimed that playing franchise cricket was a good experience for him. The 37-year-old added that he has a lot of time to think about his future after the series against New Zealand. The star batter claimed to be focused on playing in the IPL 2024 and in the T20 WC 2024 later this year. 

He then made a shocking announcement and claimed himself to be well and truly done. Warner asked the younger talents to come forward and showcase their talent for Australia. “I’m well and truly done, it’s time for the youngsters to come through and show their talent,” said Warner in his statement. The announcement of the star batter did not go well with the fans, who expressed their disappointment on the news. 

Here’s how the fans reacted to the news:

Manoj Tiwary

Manoj Tiwary has made a huge claim on the mindset of the youngster. The former India cricketer recently announced his retirement from all forms of cricket and has been talking a lot about the game since then. His statements have set the social media on fire and the fans have mixed opinions. One such statement has been the priorities of the younger players. 

The former Indian player claimed that the IPL has changed the mindset of the youngsters. He claimed that the players today often go to Dubai and other places when they are not in the Indian squad. He added that it has reduced the significance of the domestic tournaments. The statement from Tiwary came following the statement of Jay Shah regarding the warning for players. 

“I can observe that young players have adopted an IPL-centric mindset. Those who don’t play IPL often go to Dubai or other places whenever they find some free time,” said Tiwary. He felt that a post that he made on X reached the headquarters and led to the Indian secretary taking a serious step on those who skipped playing the Ranji Trophy in recent times. 

Trend is diminishing the significance of the prestigious Ranji Trophy – Manoj Tiwary

Manoj felt that the diminishing stature of the Ranji Trophy has led to the changing mindset of the players. While Tiwary claimed the IPL to be a huge platform for the players, he added that the importance of the Ranji Trophy needs to increase. He asked Jay Shah and other heads of the Indian Cricket Board to take steps towards increasing the significance of domestic cricket. 

“However, this trend is diminishing the significance of the prestigious Ranji Trophy. IPL is a massive platform for all of us, but I also request the BCCI president and secretary to increase the significance of the Ranji Trophy,” added Tiwary in his statement. Some players did not care about taking part in the Ranji Trophy recently despite being fit to play. Jay Shah was angry with the motives of such players.
