Terming it his “last resort”, Australia’s veteran batsman David Warner — who has announced retiring from one-day international (ODI) cricket after stepping away from Test cricket — made a heartfelt appeal for the return of his “stolen” Test cap.

Taking to his Instagram handle, Warner made a public plea for the return of his baggy green caps after they went missing from his bag while being transported from Melbourne.

In the post on the social media platform, the veteran said some of his possessions got lost in transit.

“Hi all, this is my last resort, but my backpack, which contained my Baggy Green, has been taken from my luggage, which was transported to Melbourne airport and flown on @qantas to Sydney a few days ago,” Warner said.

The cricketer said that the airline told him that they checked their cameras and had not seen anyone open their bags and take the backpack, however, they did have blind spots.

“Someone has taken my backpack out of my luggage from Melbourne to Sydney … inside this backpack was my Baggy Green cap.”

“It’s something that I would love to have back in my hands walking out there this week,” he added.

Warner further said: “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. I would be grateful if this were returned asap. Thanks.”

It is pertinent to mention here that Warner will play his farewell Test against Pakistan at Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG) slated to be held from January 3 to 7. It would be the final Test of the Benaud-Qadir Trophy.
