I’ve got ambitions to potentially coach: David Warner


Right after retiring from Test cricket, David Warner has expressed his desire to potentially coach a team down the line. However, he left the decision to his wife, Candice to allow him to stay away from his house for a few more days.

Meanwhile, Warner will continue to play T20I cricket and is likely to represent Australia in the upcoming T20 World Cup, which is slated to begin on June 1, 2024. The 37-year-old will also feature for Delhi Capitals in the IPL and in several other franchises all across the globe – including in the Big Bash League (BBL), and ILT20. After his retirement from all formats, Warner prefers to take up the coaching role.

“Yeah, I’ve got ambitions later down the track to potentially coach. I’ll have to speak with the wife first to see if I’m allowed a few more days away,” Warner said to Fox Sports.

I don’t think you’ll see that kind of sledging anymore: Warner

Warner also opened up about his aggressive nature during the start of his career. His opening partner Usman Khawaja recently stated that the team management asked Warner to sledge opponents during the early phase of his career but the cricketer himself believes that the fans won’t see that kind of sledging anymore in world cricket.

“When I came into the team, the way that I went about it on the field was to get in people’s faces, to upset them and to get them off their rhythm when they’re batting. I was moulded into being that person, I don’t think you’ll see that kind of sledging or anything like that anymore & I think it’ll be just like a bit of laughter, a bit of banter, like me and Shaheen Shah Afridi (in the Test against Pakistan).”

“I think that’s probably the way forward, I don’t think you’ll see that old aggression again. It will change. In five, ten years’ time, if I am coaching, I think the whole dynamic will be changing, and it’ll be more about cricket specifics and how you’re winning games, and not about how you get on the skin of batsmen when you’re out there,” Warner added.
