Covid-19 restrictions might make David Warner ‘rethink’ international future?

Australian batsman David Warner said that the bio-security guidelines that cricketers will have to adhere to while on international tours might be an important factor for him to rethink his future in international cricket.


The thirty three years old batsman said, he like to choose retire rather than face long stints away from their partners and children.

“Obviously three daughters and my wife, who I owe a lot to, has been a big part of my playing career,” he said (Via ESPN Cricinfo).

“You’ve always got to look out for your family first, and with cricket and these unprecedented times, you’ve got to weigh up these decisions. Look, at the moment, I’ll keep continuing to aim for that. Obviously the T20 [World Cup] is not here at home, which would have been ideal to play that and win that here. Now that gets pushed back. I will have to have a rethink about that when it comes to India”. He added.

“I’ll see where I am and where the girls are at with school as well. A lot of that is a big part of my decision. It’s not just when the games are being played and how much cricket’s being played. It’s a big family decision for myself. There are times when you go away and miss your family a lot and at the moment with all these biosecurity measures that are in place, we’re going to not be able to have the luxury of our families coming away with us now and it could be for the foreseeable future.” he further said.
