The eager beavers at in the stands at the Adelaide Oval have today been left bemused after a rather unusual spectacle out in the middle.

With Australia set to take on the last blokes in the Caribbean interested in playing Test cricket, a retired David Warner has shocked onlookers by jet packing down onto the pitch ahead of the toss.

The confusing but logistically impressive move comes less than a week after Warner left his brothers wedding to helicopter onto the SCG turf for a Big Bash game.

The interesting move to leave his brother’s big day to arrive an hour and half early, on a field 20 minutes from the airport, to play in a dress up cricket game, for a team already out of contention – follows his decision to take to social media to accuse baggage staff of stealing his Baggy Green.

That Baggy Green then turned up in his hotel room, where he’d left it, after a number of high profile figures came out to attack baggage handlers and demand the stolen item of clothing be handed back.

The Baggy Green scandal follows months of headlines about David Warner’s decision to retire on home soil, but half way through the summer so he could retire on his home ground.

It’s unknown why exactly he has now jet packed onto the Adelaide Oval, given he is no longer playing for the nation team, but it’s believed it will keep the headlines rolling for the former opener.

Warner was unavailable to comment, telling The Advocate he wants to keep a low profile.

More to come.
