He took to social media after losing his cap ahead of his final Test match
Warner: 'Being here for 112 Tests is surreal'
The Australian opener addresses the media ahead of what could be his last Test
David Warner has taken to social media to plead for the return of a bag containing a green cap after it went missing on a trip from Melbourne to Sydney ahead of his final Test match.
Warner will play his last Test match at the SCG this week and will be desperate to get his cap back.
„Hello everyone, this is my last attempt,” she wrote on Instagram with a video, „but my backpack containing my baggy green was taken from my luggage, transported to Melbourne airport and flown on @qantas. Sydney a few days ago. @qantas they have cameras. Checked and no one opened our bags and took a bag, however they have blind spots. I happen to have a bag when leaving the airport or working at @qantas. I have one. I would be grateful if it could be returned as soon as possible. Thank you.”
„Please contact Cricket Australia or me through my social media and I will be happy to give you my baggy greens if you return them,” Warner added in the video.
Speaking moments before the news of Warner's baggy green became public, captain Pat Cummins hailed him as a convert to Test form.
“I think everyone thinks about him in their own way. „Personally, I think of him, he first came on the scene and really changed Test cricket. He scored over 70, which was unheard of for an opener, an average of 40 or 50. That's the Davey I remember – walking out. And for an hour or two. Taking the game away from the opposition at intervals, I've done that for over a decade.
„His longevity is something that has not been noticed. The amount of cricket he has played in the last 12-13 years is more than anyone else in the world. Every time he goes out, he is competitive and ready to go. A champion of the Australian game. He will be well received this week.” I believe.”
With a 3-0 series lead, Cummins confirmed that Australia will field an unchanged XI for the Sydney Test.
