David Warner to skip India T20I series 2023. Australia’s T20I series against India takes a hit as seasoned opener David Warner heads home, missing the five-game lineup. Warner’s pivotal role in securing Australia’s sixth ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup title, scoring 535 runs at an average of 48.63, saw him expected to stay for the T20Is. However, opting for a return, Cricket Australia stated, “Selectors decided Warner would head home following a demanding yet successful World Cup campaign.”
