Veteran Australian opener David Warner arrived for Big Bash League 2023-24 clash between Sydney Thunder and Sydney Sixers in Hollywood-style entry on Friday, January 12.

Warner, who recently retired from Test and ODI cricket, arrived for the upcoming BBL match between Thunder and Sixers by helicopter, which landed at Sydney Cricket Ground. The 37-year-old flew in all the way from Hunter after attending his brother's wedding, which is 250 kms from SCG. The southpaw arrived at the venue just few hours before the BBL clash against Sydney Sixers.

In a viral video, helicopter can be seen making a landing at Sydney Cricket Ground and David Warner and his family deboarding from it. The helicopter on the outfield close to "Thanks Dave #426" logo painted during farewell Test at his home ground in Sydney.

David Warner will play his first for Sydney Thunder in the ongoing Big Bash League 2023-24 season. He has been added to Thunder's squad after he confirmed of playing for the side in the remaining matches.

Warner bowed out of Test and ODI Cricket after playing his final innings in whites in third Test against visiting Pakistan team at Sydney Cricket Ground. He scored 57 off 75 balls before he was dismissed by Sajid Khan in Australia's 130-run chase. He received applause from Pakistan players and standing ovation from SCG crowd while walking back to pavilion.

David Warner's return didn't turn fortunes for Sydney Thunder

David Warner's comeback BBL match for Sydney Thunder against Sydney Sixers didn't go as expected as the Thunder lost by 19 runs.

Chasing the target of 151, Sydney Thunder were restricted to 132/9 in 20 overs by Sixers' bowling attack led by Steve O'Keefe. Warner scored 37 off 39 balls at a strike rate of 94.87.

The middle-order of Sydney Thunder didn't setup when the team needed them the most. The likes of Cameron Bancroft, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, skipper Chris Green and Daniel Sams failed to deliver with the bat.

Sydney Thunder has already been eliminated from the ongoing season of the Big Bash League as they registered one win and six defeats from 8 matches. Chris Green-led side is currently second from bottom of the table.
