Steve Smith And David Warner All Set To Play This New Tournament

Steve Smith and David Warner, the two top class cricketers who were banned for 12 months because of their involvement in the Ball-tampering scandal that rocked the entire cricket world.

They were drafted on Sunday for the inaugural edition of the event. While Steve Smith had already been announced as a marquee player.

Really excited to be a part of @gt20canada . Thanks to the Winnipeg Hawks for selecting me to play in what will be a really competitive tournament. Prep steps up this week in the nets ????????

While, David Warner, who was the vice-captain of the team was selected in the third round of the draft by the Winnipeg Hawks after he took Dwayne Bravo and David Miller in the first and second rounds respectively.

On the other hand, Steve Smith, who was the skipper of the team was selected in the second round of the draft by the Toronto Nationals, where he will be seen playing alongside Darren Sammy and Kieron Pollard.

The Canadian Tournament will run from June 28-July 15 at Maple Leafe Cricket Club near Toronto. It will be a sigh of relief for both the players of the team, who have been on the receiving side of the criticism for a long time now after they accepted their role in the shocking Ball-Tampering scandal.

Apart from Steve Smith and David Warner, Cameron Bancroft was also suspended for nine months. He was the player who was caught doing the call-tampering with an unknown object during the match.

Well, we really wish that the tournament turns things for both the top class players.
