‘I’ve pretty much accomplished everything I wanted’-David Warner reveals ticking all the goals he made in 2013

Warner revealed that he even wrote in 2013 in a journal when he wanted to retire.

David Warner | GettyAustralian batter David Warner is considered to be one of the best openers that modern-day cricket has seen. He has flourished in all three formats of the game, having made his debut in 2009 in T20Is for Australia without playing any FC cricket.

Despite a setback in form of a one-year ban due to his involvement in the 2018 ball-tampering incident in the Cape Town Test against South Africa, Warner has managed to bring both fans and authorities back on his good side with amazing performances on the field.

He has mellowed as a cricketer in his behavior, but has continued to churn out runs at will, and was the Player of the Tournament as Australia won their maiden T20 World Cup in 2021.

During a chat with Fox Sports.com.au, Warner revealed that he had written a journal entry in 2013 in which he had made a list of accomplishments that wanted to achieve including the date of his retirement, and said that he has managed to fulfill almost all of them.

He said: “My wife actually found a journal while unpacking some stuff from 2013. I wrote down what I wanted to achieve and when I was going to retire. I had 2033 but crossed out for 2023. I had like 20 (Test) hundreds, 20 ODI hundreds, 10 T20 hundreds, and over, I think, 6,000 Test runs, 5,000 ODI runs, and 10,000 T20 runs. So I’ve pretty much ticked all them off bar two ODI (and two T20) hundreds.

So, for me, going back to 2009, then 2013 labelling all that, I’ve pretty much accomplished everything I wanted to do.”

The left-hander has 24 Test hundreds, 18 ODIs hundreds, and 8 centuries in T20 cricket. He has made 7817 runs in 96 Tests, 5799 runs in 138 ODIs, and 10870 runs in T20 matches.

Warner will be seen in action as Australia prepare to defend their T20 World Cup crown at home when the tournament begins on October 16.
