David Warner Stuns with Scoop Shot Against Shaheen Shah Afridi- After hitting Shaheen Shah Afridi with a magnificent scoop shot, David Warner begs his detractors to stop talking.
After this series, Warner plans to retire from Test cricket. He has declared that he hopes to play his final Test match at his home stadium of Sydney.

On the first day of the first Test match between Australia and Pakistan in Perth, David Warner blasted his 26th century in the format, reaching the milestone in just 125 balls.

With a shot that was close to the border, he reached his hundred and broke into his signature celebration. Then, in a move that may be seen as a request for his critics to stop talking, he put his finger to his lips. Since he declared he wanted a farewell Test, he has been the centre of attention, with former teammate Mitchell Johnson criticising him harshly in an Australian newspaper.

By reaching his fifty-first-century mark in just forty-one balls and finishing the first session unbeaten on seventy-seven deliveries, the southpaw put the Pakistani bowlers to the test.

Usman Khawaja and Warner made their intentions clear from the outset when they smacked the ball about to score 14 runs off Pakistan’s top pacer Shaheen Shah Afridi’s first over.

However, one shot in particular stood out during Warner’s inning. In the 22nd over of the innings, batting against Shaheen, he went down on one knee and lofted an outside-the-off stump ball for a six over fine leg. Warner went flat on his back as he was making the shot. However, as he stood up and Sheen strode off to the top of his run-up, he grinned.

Warner was obviously trying to hurt Shaheen with his bowling in the opening session. He blasted Pakistan’s speed spearhead for two consecutive boundaries in the seventh over, smashing the second ball to the leg side after cutting the first one over point, putting Australia up 34-0.

After this series, Warner plans to retire from Test cricket. He is probably going to stay in the side for the second Test at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, which is scheduled to begin on Boxing Day, based on his performance in the first innings. Warner has said that he will step down following the third Test, which is scheduled to take place from January 3–7 at his home ground in Sydney.

Mitchell Johnson, Warner’s former colleague, became enraged when Warner publicly stated that he hoped for a last Test match in Sydney. Johnson had insulted Warner in a letter published in an Australian newspaper.

Please let me know why as we get ready for David Warner’s farewell series. Prior to mentioning the “Sandpapergate” ball-tampering incident involving the Australian team in South Africa in 2018, Johnson wrote.

Why a faltering Test captain is allowed to choose when to retire. What justifies a hero’s farewell for a player who is at the core of one of the largest scandals in Australian cricket history?
