As Pakistan gears up for the third and final Test of their ongoing tour to Australia, all attention is focused on the Australian opener, David Warner. The seasoned cricketer, who has already declared his retirement from red-ball cricket and ODIs after the current series, faces an emotional setback as he has lost his cherished Test cap, commonly known as the Baggy Green.
In a noteworthy turn of events, Warner has made a heartfelt appeal to reclaim this symbol of cricketing prestige. The significance attached to the baggy Green in Australian cricket history amplifies the emotional weight of the juggernaut’s plea, adding a poignant layer to his impending departure from the longer formats of the game.
David Warner’s heartfelt request
Warner took to social media, expressing his wholehearted plea for the return of his lost baggy Green. In a video post, he shared that the sentimental cap was inside a missing backpack. He asked anyone with information to contact Cricket Australia or himself through social media. Warner even offered a spare backpack but emphasized the importance of getting back his cherished cap, offering it as a reward for its safe return.
“Inside this backpack was my Baggy Green. It’s sentimental to me. It’s something I’d love to have in my hands walking out there this week. If it’s the backpack you really wanted, I have a spare one here. You won’t get into trouble. Please reach out to Cricket Australia or myself via my social media. I’m happy to give this to you if you return my Baggy Green,” Warner said in the video.
