David Warner and Usman Khawaja were talking to the media ahead of the Test series against West Indies. When asked by the reporters about plans for retirement, Warner replied,
“These legs are still fresh”.
Warner mentioned that winning in India would be the pinnacle of his career and if Australia can win there, he would retire from Tests. He also pointed out that winning in England is also on his checklist. Australia was able to draw the series in England during the last Ashes. But they could not win the series.

Khwaja talking to the media
Khawaja and Warner have known each other since the age of 6. Khawaja said that having a good relationship with Warner helps in their partnership. He said, “They have an inexperienced team.” But he said that Australia need not take them lightly. He said that playing a test match is always difficult as nothing comes easy. He also said that Australia is always expected to win whenever they play and anything other than that and the fans would be unhappy.
