Candice Warner reveals why she has her husband David on a weekly allowance – as the cricketer plans his retirement

He may be a multimillionaire cricketer, but David Warner lives on a modest weekly allowance decided by his wife Candice.

The former Ironwoman, 37, spoke about the couple’s unique financial arrangement on Triple M’s Rush Hour with Gus, Jude & Wendell on Monday.

She explained she limits David’s spending because he sometimes goes overboard with gambling and impulse buys.

‘His allowance is healthy. I am the sensible spender while David is quite erratic and he loves to have a punt,’ she said.

‘David loves to buy a random horse or bet on the golf course, so he needs to have an allowance to keep our family going [and] make sure the mortgage gets paid.’

‘But the allowance does go up around my birthday and anniversaries!’ she added.

The Warners, who married in 2015 and share three daughters, recently moved into their lavish mansion in Sydney‘s Maroubra.

David and Candice bought the home for $3.9million in late 2015, before knocking down the property on the 892 sqm site.

They later bought another $2.3million house in Maroubra in May 2017, which acted as their in-between home while renovations took place on their main address.

David and Candice are estimated to have spent about $4million renovating the four-bedroom, two-bathroom property.

It comes after David indicated he could retire from Test cricket after next year’s Ashes, with the opening batsman confirming he will walk away from the red-ball format first.

The 50-over World Cup will be held in India at the start of next summer, before T20’s next showpiece tournament in the Caribbean and USA in 2024.

The 36-year-old made clear he intends on playing in both as he laid out his likely plan for walking away from the game.

‘Test cricket will probably be the first one to fall off,’ he said on Triple M’s Deadset Legends.

‘Because that’s how it will pan out. The T20 World Cup is in 2024, [one-day] World Cup next year.

‘Potentially it could be my last 12 months in Test cricket. But I love the white-ball game; it’s amazing.’
