David Warner, the former vice-captain of Australian cricket team, undoubtedly going through the toughest times of his life.He was banned from playing the sport for the country for one year, because of his involvement in the ball-tempering controversy.
With David Warner, captain of Australian cricket team, Steven Smith and Cameron Bancroft were also banned from playing the game as they were caught live doing the ball-tempering.
After the investigations, it was found that David Warner was the mastermind behind all this. And for the same reason David Warner can not be a part of the leadership group for the rest of his career.
Apart from playing for the country, these cricketers were not allowed to participate in the season 11 of Indian Premiere League. Kane Williamson replaced David Warner as the skipper of Sunrisers Hyderabad in the season 11 of IPL.
I had an amazing time in Toronto, thanks to every single person that was involved. @gt20canada Credit to you for putting together this tournament for what was only a thought about 8 months ago and you did it. Everyone I spoke to, took pics with and engaged with thanks you for being polite and so kind towards me. I really appreciated the opportunity to be back on the park and playing competitive cricket again. My team mates and staff were fantastic. Energetic and enthusiastic bunch of people, I am gonna miss you all. Thanks Canada ???????? until next time…
The past few months have been very tough for Warner as he made a comeback to the game with Global T20 Canada, however, Warner failed to leave mark through the course of the tournament.
Despite his not that good performance, Warner is very optimistic about his chances. Recently he was quoted saying :
“I’m pretty good when I’m fresh,”
Warner is very confident that his break period will only do good to him. He also went on to add that one doesn’t lose his form overnight. He said:
“If you look at the last 12 months, I played basically every game (for Australia) and didn’t get a rest. I had a five-day turnaround before the first Test in South Africa and I led the team in (the T20 tri-series in Australia and) New Zealand when some of the other guys had a rest. So I know that the breaks do me (good), and you don’t lose form overnight,”
David Warner will be seen in form in the upcoming Carribean Premier League (CPL), that will begin next month.
