Earlier, the star Australian Opener, David Warner dropped a retirement bombshell on the fans with World Test Championship (WTC) final just around the corner. Notably, the veteran Australian batter is currently in London with his team, gearing up for the final of the grand ICC (International Cricket Council) event, which is scheduled to begin on June 7. Warner’s retirement eventually came after, his lean patch in recent times, where the southpaw struggled with the bat. The dynamic Australian opener has also laid an idea of the SCG Test against Pakistan in January to be his last.
“It’s nice to have an end date, I suppose if that’s the way you want to go. But ultimately for all of us, we’re going to be doing our job and for batters that is scoring runs,” Smith was quoted as saying by The West Australian.
I am concerned about Test cricket’s future: Smith
“I am slightly concerned. As a traditionalist and someone that loves Test cricket, I hope it still remains at the front of all the boards’ minds and stays alive and well for some time to come,” Smith concluded.
