News Daily Digital Desk: The World Cup (ICC ODI World Cup 2023) campaign is over. Australia became world champion for the sixth time after defeating India. However, the explosive left-handed opener David Warner withdrew from the five-match T20 series starting from Thursday against Team India. All-rounder Aaron Hardy has come in his place. It has been stated in a press release issued by Cricket Australia.
But why such a decision? In fact, David Warner is not willing to sit on the happy time of world victory. Instead, they want to focus on the Test series against Pakistan at home. And so he will not play against India for now. Warner scored 535 runs in 11 matches in this cup war. Which is the highest run among Ajids.
“David Warner will return home only after successfully winning the World Cup,” Cricket Australia said in a statement. Azira will play a Test series against Pakistan in December-January. This is followed by the T20 World Cup held in America and West Indies. Warner is guaranteed to play in both these competitions.

But despite Warner not playing against Suryakumar Yadav-Rituraj Gaikwad, seven members of Ajid’s world-winning team will be seen in the upcoming series. They are Sean Abbott, Travis Head, Josh Inglis, Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith, Marcus Stoinis and Adam Zampa. Besides, reserve spinner Tanveer Sangha has also been kept in the team.
