Australia opener David Warner wants to win a series in India and England before quitting Test cricket. Warner has played 13 games in England across three series in India, while he has eight games in India. However, he has a poor record in both the countries, averaging 26 and 24 respectively.

“We still haven’t beaten India in India. That would be nice to do. And obviously, England away, we had a drawn series (in 2019), but hopefully, if I managed to get that chance and opportunity, I might think about going back,” Warner was quoted as saying by ‘ESPNcricinfo’.

Australia’s next tour to England will be in 2023 and Warner will be 37 by then. Citing the example of James Anderson, Warner said that age is just a number.

“I think James Anderson sets the benchmark for older guys these days,” he said.

“We look up to him as we’re getting on in our days. But for me, it’s about performing to the best of my ability and putting runs on the board.

Warner endured a lean patch for most of 2021. However, he has regained his form in the last month or so. After a staggering 20-20 World Cup, where he won the Player of the Tournament, he carried on his form in the Ashes, helping Australia take an unassailable 3-0 lead in the series.

“I feel in good touch. As I said, I was out of runs not out of form, so hopefully, I can put some more numbers on the board leading into this new year.”
