David Warner is requesting the return of his missing baggy green before the final Test.

David Warner has urgently requested the retrieval of his baggy green cap, which was misplaced while on its way to his final Test match at the SCG.

The Australia cricket player shared a sincere video on Instagram expressing that his backpack had gone missing during transit from the second Test in Melbourne to the team’s arrival in Sydney.

“Regrettably, someone has removed my backpack from my current luggage, which contained both my own backpack and my daughters’ presents,” Warner stated on Tuesday before the third Test against Pakistan.

“My baggy greens were inside that backpack. They hold sentimental value for me and I would love to have them back in my hands as I walk out this week. If the backpack is what you truly desire, I have an extra one here. You will not face any consequences.”

“Please contact Cricket Australia or me through my social media. I am willing to give this to you in exchange for my baggy greens.”

Warner, who is 37 years old, will be playing his 112th and last Test for Australia in the upcoming match against Pakistan at the SCG on Wednesday. He has achieved a total of 8,695 runs and 26 centuries in his Test career, including a score of 164 in the first game of the series against Pakistan in Perth.

According to Warner, Qantas has reviewed their surveillance footage and did not observe anyone opening our bags and stealing the backpack. However, they do have areas where their cameras cannot capture. If you happen to be the individual who handled the transportation of the bags to and from the airport or an employee of Qantas and took the backpack, I have another one for you. I kindly request that it be returned as soon as possible.

Shan Masood, the captain of Pakistan, urged Anthony Albanese to consider investing in the search for the cap.

“I believe that the Australian government should conduct a nationwide search at this time,” he stated.

We may require top-notch detectives to retrieve it. He has served as an exceptional representative and deserves all the respect and recognition for his incredible career.

He serves as a role model for openers. On a personal level, I thoroughly enjoy watching him bat and play.

Australia has chosen the same starting team as the one that beat Pakistan by 360 runs and 79 runs. They are aiming for a perfect record in the three-Test series.

Cameron Green, a versatile player, and Scott Boland, a fast bowler, will once again observe from the sidelines. Captain Pat Cummins is confident that he and fellow fast bowlers Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood can handle the workload despite a quick turnaround.

Australia will have a nine-day break after the conclusion of the Pakistan series, before their first Test against West Indies begins on 17 January in Adelaide.

The second match against West Indies at the Gabba will commence after four days.

During the upcoming summer, Australia is scheduled to participate in a total of seven Tests, with an additional two matches planned for New Zealand on February 29th.

“Typically, something comes up every summer. However, the three of us are in great condition,” Cummins stated regarding the trio of pace bowlers.

“Despite the summer schedule being slightly staggered, there will be two Tests followed by a break, then two more Tests, and finally New Zealand.”

“We are open to trying it out. The process has been going well thus far.”

The Australia team for the third Test against Pakistan includes David Warner, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Steve Smith, Travis Head, Mitch Marsh, Alex Carey, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins as captain, Nathan Lyon, and Josh Hazlewood.
