Pakistan Test captain Shan Masood has called for the best detectives to be put to work to recover David Warner's missing Baggy Green ahead of the latter's farewell Test. The 34-year-old admits that the veteran deserves to have a memorable farewell match, given his contributions since the last decade.
On Tuesday afternoon, Warner took to his official social media handle pleading for the recovery of his precious Baggy Green Cap. The veteran stated that the cap is highly sentimental to him and promises not to take any action and will even give it to the one returning the same.
Speaking at a presser ahead of the 3rd Test in Sydney, Masood reckons the Australian government must trigger a country-wide search for the cap and hopes the cap gets recovered soon.
"There should be a country-wide search right now from the Australian Government. We might need the best of detectives to get that back. He’s been a great ambassador, and he deserves every bit of respect, every bit of celebration for his unbelievable career. I hope they find it. It’s the most precious thing for any cricketer, and I hope David Warner gets it back."
