David Warner makes a heartfelt appeal for the timely recovery of his beloved Australian cricket cap ahead of the last Test.

David Warner has issued a desperate plea for the return of his baggy green cap after it got lost during transit to his farewell Test at the SCG.

The opener for Australia took to Instagram to share a heartfelt video, informing that his backpack containing his baggy greens and his daughters’ presents was taken out of his luggage between the second Test in Melbourne and the team’s arrival in Sydney.

In his Tuesday statement before the third Test against Pakistan, Warner said, “If it’s the backpack that 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 greens.”

Warner, who is playing his 112th and final Test for Australia, made a request to Qantas, stating, “Qantas have said they checked their cameras and have not seen anyone open our bags and take the backpack, however they do have blind spots. If you are the person who was either working for the company driving it to and from the airport or working for Qantas and have, by chance, just wanted the backpack, I have one for you. I would be grateful if these were returned ASAP.”

Australia has announced an unchanged XI for the third Test, aiming for a clean sweep of the three-Test series.

All-rounder Cameron Green and pacer Scott Boland will not be playing, as captain Pat Cummins expresses confidence in him and his fast bowling partners Mitchell Starc and Josh Hazlewood to manage the workload.

Australia has a nine-day gap before the first Test against West Indies and will play a total of seven Tests this summer.
