Four days after losing his Baggy Green caps, Australia star David Warner finally found his prized possession. Just before the start of the ongoing third AUS vs PAK Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground, the retiring opener had announced that his caps were lost in transit between Melbourne and Sydney ahead of his farewell Test.

David Warner flew to Sydney from Melbourne on December 30 after his team’s 79-run win over Pakistan in the Boxing Day Test. He had left his Baggy Green caps including the original one from his debut in 2011 inside his Cricket Australia backpack. The backpack was then placed inside a larger bag, which was flown from Melbourne to Sydney on December 31 with the rest of the team’s luggage.

The backpack was found at the team hotel in Sydney although it is still not clear how it got there. On Friday, David Warner posted a video on social media and thanked those involved for finding it.

“Hi everyone, I am very pleased and relieved to let you all know that my baggy greens have been found, which is great news,” he wrote alongside the video. “Thanks to all involved and I am extremely grateful. Qantas, the freight company, our hotels and team management. Thanks [sic] you.

“Any cricketer knows how special their cap is and I will cherish this for the rest of my life,” he added.
