Ahead of his farewell Test in Sydney, David Warner has taken to social media, making a heartfelt plea for the safe return of his beloved Baggy Greens, which went missing in transit.
David Warner, ahead of his final Test match, made a heartfelt appeal for the return of his missing Baggy Greens. The cherished caps disappeared from his Cricket Australia backpack following the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne. Warner, possessing both his original Test debut cap from December 2011 and a spare received during repairs, inadvertently left them in his backpack upon returning to Sydney on December 30.
The backpack, containing the precious caps, was inside a larger bag and transported alongside the team’s belongings to Sydney on December 31. In a social media video, Warner expressed sentimental attachment, urging for their return before his farewell Test, even offering a trade of the backpack.
“Inside this backpack was my Baggy Greens. It’s sentimental to me. It’s something I’d love to have in my hands walking out there this week. If it’s the backpack you really wanted, I have a spare one here. You won’t get into trouble. Please reach out to Cricket Australia or myself via my social media. I’m happy to give this to you if you return my Baggy Green,” Warner said in the video.
Warner reached out to Qantas and the team’s hotel, Quay West, to investigate the missing Baggy Green caps. Despite checking CCTV footage and trusting the hotel’s scrutiny of room entries, the caps remained untraceable. Cricket Australia’s CEO, Nick Hockley, urged anyone with information about the bag’s whereabouts to step forward, emphasizing Warner’s desire to wear his cap for the final SCG appearance. Hockley thanked everyone for their efforts in trying to locate the missing items.
