The last and final Test between Australia and Pakistan will be played at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) on the 3rd of January. The Aussies have their eye on another whitewash and Pakistan will look to get a victory in this match and go home as a happier side. Even though Pakistan might want to prove themselves in the last game, Australia will still have some motivation to win this final game of the series as well.

For instance, Sydney is home to a lot of Australian players including their skipper Pat Cummins, Mitchell Starc and the pocket dynamo David Warner. These players will still want to give their home crowd another game to cheer for and bring their best game.

The player who will be the most motivated will surely be David Warner, who will be playing his last game before officially retiring from Test cricket. Warner has already had a wonderful career in Tests which consists of 111 matches and more than 8500 runs.

The fact that he is also playing his last game at home will be a happy and emotional sendoff for the 37 yr old powerful southpaw known for his aggressive mindset and consistent run-scoring abilities. He will want to say goodbye with one more big innings to his name.

Losing the baggy green

Just before the Test match Warner’s backpack was stolen at the airport and he shared a post on Social media to give him back his bag since it had his baggy green which he wanted to wear during the match. Warner posted it on Instagram saying, “Inside this backpack was my Baggy Green. It's sentimental to me. It's something I'd love to have in my hands walking out there this week. If it's the backpack you really wanted, I have a spare one here. You won't get into trouble. Please reach out to Cricket Australia or myself via my social media. I'm happy to give this to you if you return my Baggy Green."

In this message, even though Warner was concerned about losing his cap, it still shows how mature and sentimental he is since he is even ready to trade with the person who stole his with another spare backpack. This is also slightly unfortunate for Warner since the cap does hold a lot of sentiment to any player, who is playing international cricket and is a big moment in their career when they receive it as well. Let’s hope that the baggy green reaches its rightful owner, so Warner can still cherish it throughout his last game.
