David Warner says he will forever be tarnished by the 'Sandpaper-gate' scandal of 2018 , as the Australian opener ponders his legacy ahead of impending international retirement.

The divisive 37-year-old is looking to go out on a high with victory at the T20 World Cup in the West Indies and United States, where Australia are into the Super Eight stage.

Australia's leading run-scorer in T20 cricket has said that the World Cup will be the final act of his international playing career.

Speaking to reporters in Antigua, Warner acknowledged that the notorious ball-tampering scandal in South Africa six years ago will always be mentioned alongside his exploits with the bat.

'I think it's going to be inevitable that when people talk about me in 20 or 30 years' time, there will always be that sandpaper scandal,' said Warner, according to Cricket Australia.
