Australian skipper David Warner discussed veteran opener David Warner’s retirement from international cricket and expressed confidence that replacements would be available. Pat Cummins said that he doesn’t want to rush any player to retire from international cricket.

Earlier, David Warner announced his decision to retire after the T20 World Cup 2024, which will take place in the Caribbean Islands and the USA. The left-handed batter will still be a part of the Australian cricket team for the upcoming edition of the ODI World Cup in India later this year.

It’s Just An Age – Pat Cummins

Speaking ahead of the fifth Test against England, Pat Cummins admitted that age can be a factor in players’ decisions to retire, but he also believes that some players might still be performing at the top level even after four years.

“I certainly don’t want to rush anyone out the door. I think this is about the fourth Ashes series where Jimmy Anderson says it’s going to be his last one. You never know. It’s just an age. Some of these guys might be around here in four years, and still at the top level. We’ll see,” Cummins said.

“It’s always a conversation. In cricket, we’re lucky you’ve got white-ball cricket where you can kind of have a soft entry for a lot of the guys, give them exposure to international cricket. It’s something the selectors talk about, but really you try and pick your best XI each week,” he added.

Matt Renshaw Is A Very Good Player – David Warner

David Warner believes that Matt Renshaw could be an ideal replacement for him, highlighting that he can play well in all three formats.

“I’ve always said Matt Renshaw is a very good player. He can play both formats quite easily. He’s tall. He’s exactly like Haydos [Matt Hayden]. We spoke about him in the early part of his career,” Warner said.

“I’ve always felt and held him in high regard as a very good player. He’s worked on his technique. He’s been in and out of the squads, and I think he’ll be a great replacement,” he added.
