The opener confirmed on Friday morning that his original cap had been located
Four days after David Warner declared it was lost in transit between Melbourne and Sydney in front of his farewell Test, the missing baggy green has been found.
Uncertainty surrounds how the backpack, which held two caps—including Warner’s original from his 2011 Test debut—arrived at the team hotel in Sydney. On Friday morning, Warner praised everyone involved for recovering his original baggy green in a video he shared on social media.
“Hey everyone, He added accompanying the video, “It’s wonderful news that my baggy greens have been found. I’m very happy and relieved to let you all know.” “I want to express my sincere gratitude to everyone who helped. The freight firm, our hotels, team management, and Qantas. Many thanks.
In the clip he said: “Any cricketer knows how special their cap is and I will cherish this for the rest of my life.”
A representative for Cricket Australia stated: “The entire contents of the bag they were packed in were discovered at the team hotel. Despite intensive searches, the examination of CCTV material from several sites, and the efforts of multiple parties since Tuesday, the movements of the lost bag remain unclear.”
Warner stated that if the backpack had been taken by someone, they wouldn’t face any consequences if it was returned. The cap had been inside luggage that was sent to the players individually following the second Test, but Warner later disclosed that the luggage had not arrived in Sydney.
Warner fielded for Australia on the first day of play, using a newly borrowed cap from Cricket Australia for a number of photo ops before to his last Test.
Nick Hockley, the CEO of CA, expressed his gratitude to everyone engaged in the search and stated, “It’s a huge relief David’s cap has been located.” “We really appreciate it.”
