IIE Digital Desk: David Warner on Monday announced his retirement from ODI cricket, just two days before the start of his farewell Test against Pakistan in Sydney.

'I’ve got to give back to the family. That (ODI retirement) was something I had said through the World Cup, get through that and winning that in India is a massive achievement,' the Aussie southpaw said during a press conference.

However, the 37-year-old is open to coming out of retirement for Champions Trophy 2025, which is scheduled to be hosted by Pakistan.

'I know there’s a Champions Trophy coming up and if I’m playing decent cricket still in two years’ time, and they need someone, I’m going to be available,' Warner added.

After making his ODI debut back in 2009, the opening batter from New South Wales smashed 6932 runs in 161 ODIs. During which, he scored 22 hundreds and 33 fifties.

The 3rd and final Australia vs Pakistan Test, which will be Warner's last, starts January 3rd in Sydney. The hosts have already taken an unassailable 2-0 lead in the series.
