Warner-Finch’s 2023 WC future depends on their wives
Australia opener David Warner said he and his opening partner Aaron Finch wants to play the next 50-over World Cup to be held in 2023 in India. But will they actually play? That’s a decision to be not taken by themselves, but by their wives.
When asked about his partnership prospect with current Australia skipper Finch at the 2023 World Cup, Warner’s first reaction was like, “I think we’ll speak to our wives first.”
“We’ll both be 36 or 37 and in that three years you’ve got form, wives and family,” said Warner after his glorious and unbeaten century knock against India on Tuesday which helped his side humble India by 10 wickets.
According to Warner who is probably going through the best time of his career in terms of performance, his partner Candice will have a huge say when it comes to deciding his future in the game.
“Looking forward, I’d love to be there. There’s a long road ahead, but if I’m here [in India for the World Cup], I’m very fortunate that I’ve got a good wife,” said Warner.
Warner already has three daughters—Ivy Mae, five, Indi Rae, three, and Isla Rose, six months. And he expects that is the last one.
In the first ODI in Mumbai, both Warner and Finch hit centuries on their way to an unbroken 258-run stand, that was the second highest in a 10-wicket win run-chase and the highest against India.
“We know each other’s games so well and personalities that now we can have honest conversations out there,” Warner said.
