Warner set to give Windies white-ball matches a miss for ILT20

The white-ball leg of the Australia-West Indies will be played between February 2 and 13, in which both sides will engage in three ODIs and as many T20Is

David Warner has decided to maximize his availability for the T20 around the world and as a step in that direction, he has decided to take a break from the white-ball series against West Indies in January so as to make sure that he is available for International League T20. 

Warner, who is set to retire from Test cricket after the third and final Test against Pakistan in Sydney, will be turning up for Dubai Capitals in the ILT20 that runs from January 20 to February 18. The white-ball leg of the Australia-West Indies will be played between February 2 and 13, in which both sides will engage in three ODIs and as many T20Is.

Warner has also confirmed his availability to play BBL for Sydney Thunder after his last Test against Pakistan. But if he would be available for finals should Thunder qualify remains under doubt.

"There's no doubt in the next phase of Dave's life he's going to be looking to ply his trade where he gets the best return on his investment. I don't think there's anything wrong with that, in fact, I'm encouraging him to do that,” Australian Cricketers' Association Chief Executive Todd Greenberg told SEN Cricket.

"There will be times where he'll be looking to miss certain games and tours. That's the sort of flexibility we've got to get our heads around. Some people won't like that, but that's the modern world of which we're living in and we have to embrace it."

However, ESPNCricinfo reported that Warner will be available for the T20Is in New Zealand, which will act as a preparation for the T20 World Cup in June.
