David Warner Withdraws From ‘The Hundred’

Australian cricketer David Warner decided to pull out from The Hundred league due to family and personal reasons.

David Warner withdrew himself from the list of the players who will participate on the inaugural season of England’s ‘The Hundred’. The tournament is set to clash with the schedule of Australia’s three-match ODI series against Zimbabwe as a qualification for the 2023 ODI World Cup. 

Australia’s schedule against Zimbabwe was scheduled in June. However, due to the outbreak of COVID-19, the rescheduled matches of the latter overlapped with The Hundred’s original schedule of July 17 to August 15. Still, the final schedule of both events remains uncertain due to the global situation caused by the pandemic. 

In an interview, Warner’s manager confirmed that the reason behind the player’s withdrawal in the match was in no way related to the coronavirus outbreak. In fact, the reason he stated was that he wants to put his family first and spend this time of the year with them. 

Aside from Warner’s participation in The Hundred and in the Zimbabwe tour of Australia, the 33-year-old’s part in the IPL may also be put on hold depending on the revised schedule of the event. David Warner is supposed to lead the Sunrisers Hyderabad in the 13th season of the IPL. To know more about the Indian Premier League, check out Betwala.
