After Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft, it was the turn of David Warner to confront the media over his involvement in the infamous ball-tampering scandal. It goes without saying that even he broke down in the middle of the press conference but had to face more tough questions compared to his teammates. He apologised to the nation for his regrettable actions in Cape Town last week. However, he came up with a series of tweets on social media and cleared the reason for not answering few questions in the press conference.

Warner has been banned by Cricket Australia (CA) for a period of 12 months. The shocking revelation though he did was he was resigned to the fate of playing for Australia again. The cricketer has also been barred from playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL) where he was set to lead Sunrisers Hyderabad franchise. However, he preferred not answering few controversial questions and the left-hander has apologised for the same.


Warner taking proper advice

David Warner was absolutely disconsolate in the press conference but the reporters didn’t spare him as they asked some stern questions to him. The outrage was expected as it was reported that he was the one who influenced Cameron Bancroft to use Sandpaper in order to gain an advantage during the third day’s play at Newlands. He apologised to everyone and cleared that so much is at stake for his family and cricket.

“I know there are unanswered questions and lots of them. I completely understand. In time i will do my best to answer them all. But there is a formal CA process to follow. am taking advice to make sure I properly comply with that process and answer all questions in the proper place and at the proper time. I should have mentioned that in my press conference I’m sorry for not making it clearer. With so much at stake for my family and cricket I have to follow this process properly. I think that’s fair,” he mentioned in a series of tweets.

It is, however, unclear whether the trio will challenge the sanctions which have been levied against them by Cricket Australia.
