David Warner expressed relief and joy on Instagram as he announced the recovery of his lost baggy green cap, emphasizing its immense sentimental value and his plans to treasure it for a lifetime.

Ahead of his farewell Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground against Pakistan, David Warner was reunited with his missing baggy green cap, discovered packed in a bag at the Australian cricket team’s Sydney hotel, as confirmed by Cricket Australia.

Warner expressed his relief and gratitude via an Instagram video, emphasizing the cap’s significance to cricketers and his lifelong appreciation for its recovery.

“I’m pleased and relieved that I have got my baggy (green cap) back in my hands. Any cricketer knows how special their cap is and I’ll cherish this for the rest of my life. Very grateful to all those involved in locating it: the Qantas team, the freight company, the hotel and our own team management. It’s a load of my shoulders … I really appreciate it, so thank you all,” Warner said.

However, Cricket Australia remains uncertain about how the cap ended up at the team hotel, despite extensive searches, reviews of CCTV footage, and collaborative efforts since the cap went missing.

During Australia’s first innings in Sydney, Warner used a replacement baggy green, having made a plea for the original cap’s return. Warner detailed how his backpack, containing sentimental items including his cherished baggy green, was allegedly taken from his luggage during a Qantas freight transfer. Despite extensive CCTV checks and cooperation with Quay West Hotel, where no intrusions were detected, the cap remained missing.

Expressing his emotional connection to the cap, Warner fervently hoped for its return before his final match. Australian Prime Minister Anthony Albanese had also publicly appealed for the cap’s recovery.
