Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the entire world has come to a standstill. During these times, there hasn’t been any international cricket. As the world waits for a time when things could get back to normal, cricketers are staying back home and spending time with their families.
On Friday evening, Indian vice-captain Rohit Sharma got together with David Warner for an Instagram live session. The two players interacted for about an hour during which they talked about several aspects of cricket. One of the topics of discussion was retirement from the sport.
While talking on this subject, the Indian opener dropped a hint about his retirement plans. The 33-year-old highlighted the importance of spending time with his family. He revealed that he has planned to retire from the game at the age of 38 or 39 years, which he would be by 2025 or 2026. The right-handed batsman also talked about the times when players miss their families while they are on tour.

Rohit Sharma further said that he feels once his career ends, his family will be there with him.

He said that he likes playing against Australia and winning a series in Australia was extremely special for the team.
Rohit was part of both the Test and ODI squad which won the series in Australia during their tour in 2018-19 season. David Warner also said that he likes playing against India and loves to perform well against them. As for Rohit Sharma, he has a terrific record in ODIs against Australia.

The Indian team might have to stay in 14 days-isolation period, upon their arrival in Australia, after which they can play their matches.
