Amidst his final Test match at the SCG, retiring Australian opener David Warner was greeted with a thunderous reception from the crowd and honored with a guard of honor by the Pakistan team.
In his final test appearance, David Warner, the dynamic left-handed batsman, received an honorable send-off from the Pakistan team, led by Shan Masood, during his entrance to bat in the final SCG match. Together with Usman Khawaja, Warner walked out for their last opening partnership in Test cricket.
Amidst roaring applause from the crowd, Warner’s farewell to the red-ball format after the 3rd PAK vs AUS Test was poignant. Adam Gilchrist, speaking on Fox Cricket, acknowledged the intense emotions surrounding Warner’s exit, remarking,” The emotions will be running high.”
Khawaja and Warner also exchanged a warm embrace before taking the field.
On the match front, Pakistan managed to score 313 runs despite a lackluster performance from their top order after Shan Masood elected to bat first having won the toss.
Warner, in his final Test appearance, began his innings with an impressive boundary and ended the day unbeaten at 6 runs. Pakistan chose to start their bowling attack with off-spinner Sajid Khan, and the day concluded with only 78.1 overs played.
Warner’s spotlight had intensified after securing a farewell Test at his beloved Sydney ground, where he previously delivered a match-winning century against Pakistan in the series opener. Alongside his Test retirement, the opener also announced his decision to step away from ODI cricket during a press conference in Sydney on New Year’s Day.
