David Warner Autobiography: David Warner, who retired from Test match cricket at the conclusion of the third Test match against Pakistan at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG), has announced that he is working on his autobiography which will be published in the future. The 37-year-old reckoned that it would be an interesting read as he many things written in it can raise a few eyebrows.
Warner promised his autobiography while speaking on former Australian cricketer Adam Gilchrist and ex-England captain Michael Vaughan on their Prairie Club Fire podcast.
“There’s definitely one in the pipeline and I think it’ll be an interesting read. There’s going to be a lot of things in that book that I think are going to raise some eyebrows,” Warner said in the podcast.
“I’ll have to edit a few chapters now, there’s a few more that have been added. It was 1500 pages, now it’s probably 2000,” he added before revealing that he would be talking about the Sandpaper Gate incident in detail in the book.
“I think you look down the track now, where we are today, it is in the past and it does keep getting brought up,” he said.
“There has been a lot of speculation, a lot of comments about it – but from me, it’s about this team moving forward.”
“It’s really important that the Australian cricket team is in a great space, that we’re playing well in all three formats, and I think that’s the utmost priority.”
Steve Smith Can Replace Me As A Test Opener
In a pick that could surprise many, Warner suggested that Steve Smith can replace him at the top of the order in the longest format, also endorsing Marcus Harris. However, he said that Smith is the best Test batter in the world and would be up for the challenge.
“It’s probably the challenge of it which I think he probably wants to get into,” Warner said.
