Warner was robbed before saying goodbye

David Warner is going to end his long 13-year Test career for Australia. The Sydney Test starting tomorrow is the last for the left-handed opener. He said last year that he wants to say goodbye with the Sydney Test against Pakistan. However, before the start of the farewell test, Warner was a victim of theft.

Warner is in a big irony before the last Test of his career. After arriving in Sydney from Melbourne, he learned that his baggy green (Australian cricketers’ Test cap) was missing from the bag. He made a plea to get back the lost Baggy Green on social media Instagram.

In a video message, Warner said he lost the baggy green from his backpack after the Boxing Day Test in Melbourne. Warner has been using this cap since his Test debut in 2011. If he doesn’t get it back before the start of his farewell Test, the opener will have to play his 112th Test in the new baggy green. He is disappointed to lose this hat, his partner of 13 years.

Warner returned home to Sydney after winning the second Test by 79 runs. He had baggy greens in Melbourne along with his Cricket Australia backpack. But after receiving the bag in Sydney, the sky fell on his head, ‘It’s an emotional thing for me. I want it (the baggy green) in my hand when I take the field this week.’

“If you need the backpack, I’ve got another one,” Warner said, saying the person who took it would not face any punishment if he returned it himself. You will not be in any danger. Please contact Cricket Australia or via my social media. If you return my baggy green, I will gladly give it to you (backpack).’

Warner scored 8695 runs at an average of 44.58 in 203 innings of 111 Tests in a long career. He has 26 centuries and 36 fifties. His career highest innings was against Pakistan, scoring an unbeaten 335 in Adelaide in 2019.
