Match Tied (Royal Challengers Bangalore win one-over eliminator)
David Warner, the explosive Australian cricketer, has pulled off a sensational comeback after returning from the disgraced episode of ball-tampering saga. Apart from winning the Allan Border medal, the opening batsman also took out the T20I player of the year award, beating the likes of power-hitting batsman Glenn Maxwell.
During his acceptance speech, Warner became emotional at the time of thanking his family for standing with him through thick and thin. He also hinted at retiring from T20I cricket soon. Warner, who is 33 years old, admitted that it would become a hard task to play all the three formats of the game.
For this reason, he said that T20I cricket is one format that he could drop in few years. Explaining his thought process, the former Australian skipper said that having three young kids and a wife at home with constant travelling becomes difficult. However, he didn’t make anything official yet. It remains to be seen what Warner decides since there are back-to-back T20 World Cups.
