Warner’s Grand Farewell Anticipated at Sydney Home Ground


David Warner is poised to bid farewell to his Test career in a fitting finale as Australia announces an unchanged 13-member squad for the third and final Test against Pakistan at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Warner, who has earmarked this Test as his last appearance in the iconic baggy green in front of a home crowd, is set to realize his wish in what promises to be an emotional moment for the veteran opener.

The upcoming New Year’s Test holds special significance as it marks the culmination of Warner’s illustrious journey in Test cricket, and he will be eager to make a memorable impact after a relatively subdued performance in the Boxing Day Test.

George Bailey, Chair of Selectors, expressed his anticipation for Warner’s farewell and underscored the team’s commitment to securing a clean sweep against Pakistan.

“The NSP have retained the same squad from Melbourne to Sydney as we look to clean sweep the Test series,” Bailey remarked.

While the series victory has been sealed with the win in Melbourne, Australia has opted to maintain consistency in their bowling lineup, with Scott Boland remaining on standby. The team is focused on maintaining their winning momentum and delivering a fitting send-off to Warner.

The New Year’s Test at the SCG is scheduled to commence on January 3, offering fans and teammates alike the opportunity to celebrate Warner’s remarkable career on his home turf.
