This news came out right before his last Test match, which was at the Sydney Cricket Ground against Pakistan. Warner, who has won the Cricket World Cup twice, picked this important event to end his exceptional ODI career.

In his long and successful ODI career, Warner scored 6,932 runs in 161 games, with an average of 45.30 and a strike rate of 97.26. Some of the best parts of his career were his 22 centuries and 33 fifties.

His personal best was 179 runs in a single match. Warner was a very strong player in international cricket, especially in global events, because he always did well.

Warner in the World Cup Record Book

Warner made a big difference in the ICC Cricket World Cup. He made 1,527 runs in World Cup games, with an average of 56.55 and a strike rate above 100.

Twenty-one male cricketers have scored more runs in the World Cup than Ponting. He is the only Australian to have done so.

Warner has scored six centuries and five half-centuries in the World Cup, which shows how important he is to Australia’s cricketing success.

Warner said that putting family obligations first was a big part of his choice to retire. His plan to stop playing ODIs was still being thought about during the recent World Cup.

Warner’s decision to focus on his family shows how professional players have to balance their personal lives with their sports obligations.

Warner’s last few ODI games

Warner was in great shape in his last ODI series. He scored 535 runs in 11 games, with an average of 48.63 and a strike rate above 108.

Two centuries and two fifties were among his best games, making him one of the tournament’s top run-makers.
