Australian cricket icon and World Cup star David Warner on Monday announced retirement from ODI.

The final World Cup match against India in Ahmedabad was his last ODI match.

Australia beat India to clinch the title.

The 37-year-old previously announced his retirement from Test cricket ahead of the ongoing series against Pakistan.

Ahead of his swansong Test at his hometown SCG, Warner revealed that Australia's upset World Cup final victory over India in November marked his final match in the 50-over format, reads the Cricket Australia website.

During his ODI career, Warner was part of two World Cup-winning squads.

He is exiting the ODI format of the game with 6,932 runs at 45.30, with 22 centuries.

The left-hander will continue to be available for Australia in T20 cricket.

He is seeking an NOC (No Objection Certificate) from Cricket Australia to play in that league, with the Dubai team's first game to be played on January 21, Cricket Australia website said.

During a press conference, Warner said: "I'm definitely retiring from one-day cricket as well."

"That was something that I had said through the World Cup, get through that, and winning it in India, I think that's a massive achievement," he said.

"So I'll make that decision today, to retire from those forms, which does allow me to go and play some other leagues around the world and sort of get the one-day team moving forward a little bit," the cricketer said.
