Former skipper Ricky Ponting on Tuesday paid glowing tributes to retired opener David Warner for his ''unbelievable'' career across all three formats, highlighting the significant impact Warner had on Australian cricket.

Warner's 15-year-long international career concluded when Afghanistan beat Bangladesh in Kingstown, knocking Australia out of the T20 World Cup at the Super Eight stage.

Ponting, during the ICC's Digital Daily show, shared his heartfelt thoughts: ''I put my arm around him. I said, 'Take a moment tonight to sit back and reflect on what's been an unbelievable career across all three formats for Australia.'''

Warner retired from test cricket in the summer, and Ponting emphasized his unparalleled impact on all three formats under his leadership and coaching.

Hazlewood acknowledged Warner's irreplaceable absence, expressing the team's gradual adaptation to a life without his presence.

Warner noted that he might consider returning for the Aussie ODI fold for the Champions Trophy if he continues to perform well.
