The 36-year-old Australia National Cricket Team opening batsman David Warner, who has scored 7922 Test runs, 6007 ODI runs and 2894 T20I runs, has stated that there will not be a consistent multi-format cricketer like him in the future.
Warner has been one of the most consistent all-format performers for the Australia National Cricket Team. He made his ODI and T20I debut in 2009 while Test debut in 2011. The 36-year-old is a key member of Australia across all three formats, however, recently calls have emerged for his retirement from the longest format of the game.

Speaking to News Corp, David Warner stated that he just doesn’t think that there will be a consistent multi-format cricketer in the future. He said:
“There might be the odd one that jumps out. But I don’t think you’re going to see a five-10 year career cricketer playing all three forms. I just don’t think it’s going to happen.”
It was very, very difficult – David Warner reflects on Phillip Hughes’ death
David Warner further reflected on the death of Phillip Hughes and said that it was a difficult period for him. While talking about playing a Test match against India in Adelaide a few days after Hughes’ demise, Warner said that he didn’t put a value on his wicket. Notably, the veteran opener had smashed a century in both innings of that Test against India. David Warner elaborated:
“I didn’t put a value on my wicket. I just went out there and saw the ball and reacted. It was fiery that Test match. I felt like at that stage we didn’t deserve to be out there. It was very, very difficult. I know Hughesy would have wanted us to go back out there. That was the type of person he was. He just cared about everyone else.”
