Injured opener David Warner is still open to playing international cricket until 2024 even after a difficult tour of India.

Warner arrived back to his hometown after a fractured elbow which ruled him out of the ongoing India tour. He was also concussed during the second Test loss in Delhi and was replaced before day two of play.

"I've always said I'm playing to 2024; if the selectors feel that I'm not worthy of my spot, then so be it, and I can push on to the white-ball stuff," Warner told reporters at Sydney Airport.

"I've got the next 12 months, a lot of cricket's ahead for the team and if I can keep scoring runs and putting my best foot forward for the team and I can (hold) my spot, it'd be great for the team.

"It's easy pickings (for critics) when you're 36 (years old) going on 37.

"I've seen it before with the ex-players as well.

"So for me if I'm taking pressure off the rest of the other guys, and no one's worrying about the rest of the team, I'm happy to do that."

The 36-year-old believes that he is still the right person to open for his national side in the Ashes later this year.

However, his stats tell a different story, with the left-hander averaging 26.3 in his last 14 Test matches with just 607 runs under his belt, having not been able to score runs successfully.

Tony Dodemaide, an Australia selector, refused to say if Warner would still be part of the team for the five-Test tour to England in June.

"We're worried about what we can get out of these remaining two Tests (in India), obviously that's a clear focus for us at the moment," Dodemaide said on Wednesday.

"We'll address the Ashes planning (at a later time), but we are committed to picking the best fit and available players for Test series, particularly something as big as the Ashes.

"That's not a question that we've addressed so far.

"We are very keen, as everyone I'm sure at home would be, for us to get something out of this remaining series."

Fast bowler Josh Hazlewood and bowling all-arounder Ashton Agar have also left the troublesome trip, leaving Australia down 0-2 and with no chance of winning back the Border-Gavaskar trophy.
