David Warner, one of Australia's cricket icons, recently announced his retirement from both ODI and Test cricket. This decision made public at the SCG, marks the end of a glorious era in his cricketing career.

As we head into a new year with surprising news, let's dive into the details of this announcement and reflect on Warner's achievements. David Warner is among Australia's all-time great in the white ball format and his legacy is etched in the annals of Australian cricket history. 

David Warner also left the door ajar for a possible return

The announcement at the SCG carried significant weight as Warner expressed his decision to retire from ODI cricket. Winning the World Cup in India served as a fitting conclusion to his ODI career. Despite bidding adieu to ODI cricket, Warner leaves the door slightly open for a return in the 2025 Champions Trophy if Australia requires his expertise.

Warner said, "I'm definitely retiring from one-day cricket as well," he said at the SCG on Monday. "That was something that I had said through the World Cup, get through that, and winning it in India, I think that's a massive achievement.

"So I'll make that decision today, to retire from those forms, which does allow me to go and play some other leagues around the world and sort of get the one-day team moving forward a little bit. I know there's a Champions Trophy coming up. If I'm playing decent cricket in two years' time and I'm around and they need someone, I'm going to be available."

Warner leaves behind an impressive ODI record, boasting 6932 runs at an average of 45.30 with 22 centuries. We'll compare these statistics with other Australian cricket legends, placing Warner as Australia's sixth-highest run-scorer in men's ODIs and second on the hundreds list behind Ricky Ponting who played 205 more ODI innings than Warner. 

As Warner prepares to miss the upcoming ODI and T20I series, his focus remains on extending his T20 career until at least the World Cup in the Caribbean and the USA and as he is approaching at a century of appearances in every format, Warner's impact in T20 cricket is undeniable. 

David Warner’s decision to retire from ODIs created a social media meltdown as Cricket fans from around the world reacted to Warner's decision to retire. Here are some of the tweets from fans on X:
