Warner, the seasoned IPL campaigner, spoke at length about his stint with the Delhi-based franchise, his love for India, his last World Cup for Australia and a lot more.

Australia and Delhi Capitals opener David Warner is setting his eyes on the IPL and other franchise cricket worldwide after announcing his international retirement following the end of the T20 World Cup in the West Indies and the USA.

Warner poured his heart out in the latest episode of the Delhi Capitals podcast. In a free-wheeling conversation, the seasoned IPL campaigner spoke at length about his stint with the Delhi-based franchise, his love for India, his last World Cup for Australia and a lot more.

Warner became the leading run-scorer for Australia in T20Is during the T20 World Cup 2024 match against Oman at Kensington Oval in Barbados earlier this week.

“I feel great. It’s time now to keep playing as much IPL and franchise cricket as I can. It’s very hard to play for over a decade and keep your spot. I think if we can get some young guys coming through, who have potential, Australian cricket’s going to be in good stead for the future,” Warner said on playing his last World Cup for Australia.

Speaking about his time at Delhi Capitals, Warner said, “Delhi’s been a big part of my life. They gave me an opportunity when I first started. And now towards the back end of my career, I’m here as well. So I’m forever thankful.”

Talking about how he fell in love with India, the Australian batter said, “I absolutely love it. It’s an organised chaos.”

“So for me, I started embracing India the first time I came for the IPL because I knew that if I played well, I could be here for a long time. What I didn’t realise is how big India is. I love people, it’s incredible. Like here, no one says no, and everything is possible. You can give some of the most impossible tasks, and they’ll make it happen. And I’m just like, it’s crazy,” he explained.
