Delhi Capitals' opener David Warner poured his heart out in the latest episode of the Delhi Capitals Podcast. In a free-wheeling conversation, the seasoned IPL campaigner spoke at length about his stint with the Delhi-based franchise, his love for India, his last World Cup for Australia and a lot more. 

The last World Cup

Warner became the leading run-scorer for Australia in T20Is during the T20 World Cup 2024 match against Oman at Kensington Oval in Barbados on Tuesday. 

"I feel great. It's time now to keep playing as much IPL and franchise cricket as I can. It's very hard to play for over a decade and keep your spot. I think if we can get some young guys coming through, who have potential, Australian cricket's going to be in good stead for the future," Warner said on playing his last World Cup for Australia. 

Learning, sharing and giving back to Delhi 

Speaking about his time at Delhi Capitals, Warner said, "Delhi's been a big part of my life. They gave me an opportunity when I first started. And now towards the back end of my career, I'm here as well. So I'm forever thankful."

"When I first came to Delhi, I had guys like AB de Villiers, Glenn McGrath, Paul Collingwood, Daniel Vettori and Andrew McDonald, who's now my Australian coach. Those guys were telling me all about what it's like to be on the road, especially when you've got family, when you don't have family, coping mechanisms, they're the biggest things when it comes to what you do every day, how to deal with your work, how do you balance work life. So when you come together now as a team, you almost feel like you're part of the furniture everywhere you go. If I can give back as little as I can or as much as I can, I know I'm being that responsible, experienced player," Warner further added.
