ODI World Cup: David Warner rested for T20s against India, says his ODI World Cup career not yet finished
Aaron Hardie has already joined the squad as Warner’s replacement.
“The selectors have decided that Warner will return home following a successful but demanding World Cup campaign,” Cricket Australia said in a statement on Tuesday.
Earlier this year, Warner hinted that the home series against Pakistan could be the last of his Test career but remains determined to continue in the shorter formats.
Responding to a post on social media pointing out that South Africa was playing its final ODI World Cup, the 37-year-old said on Tuesday: “Who said I’m done?”
Warner’s absence from the T20s means only seven members of Australia’s World Cup-winning squad will remain in India. They are Sean Abott, Travis Head, Josh Inglis, Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith, Marcus Stonis and Adam Zampa. India named their squad on Monday night and only three players from the World Cup were selected for the T20s including skipper Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan and Prasidh Krishna. Shreyas Iyer will be available for the last two matches in Raipur and Bengaluru.
