Australia’s cricket star David Warner’s future in Test cricket has been in doubt following his struggle to perform in the first three Ashes Tests against England. Speculation arose regarding his position in the team, and his wife Candice’s recent Instagram post has further fueled the discussion. Candice shared a cryptic message, suggesting that Warner’s Test career may have come to an end.
In her Instagram post, Candice wrote, “The end of an era for us touring with Test cricket, it’s been fun. Forever your biggest supporters and your girl gang. Love you @davidwarner31,” accompanied by a picture of the Warner family. While Warner himself has not made any statements regarding his Test future after the Ashes series, his wife’s post strongly hints at the possibility.

Following the conclusion of the third Test in Leeds, Australian captain Pat Cummins refrained from providing assurance about Warner’s place in the team. During the post-match press conference, Cummins acknowledged the potential return of Cameron Green for the next Test in Manchester. He stated, “You keep all options open. We’ve got nine or 10 days now, so we’ll take a deep breath. We’ll go away for a few days. But everyone comes back into it. Greeny should be fit for Manchester. Josh [Hazlewood] will be back in there as well. So we should have a full roster and we’ll have a look at the wicket, have a chat, and work out the best XI.”
Mitchell Marsh’s century in the Headingley Test has all but secured his place in the playing XI. Consequently, if Green returns, it is likely to come at the expense of Warner’s position in the team.
