Cricketing world was in shock when they heard about Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft’s suspensions following the infamous ball-tampering scandal against South Africa in South Africa. Cricket Australia had announced that the trio has only way for them to make a comeback – to play enough grade cricket and earn back the trust and respect.
Australian team is currently playing ODI series against England. David Warner was invited for the commentary stint by Channel 9. He readily accepted it and graced his presence in the commentary box. Warner had his say on how his life is going on post the ball-tampering scandal. For Warner, it’s all about earning the trust back from the Australian public and the board.
“I would like to think that I’ve got the trust and confidence in the team, I’ve asked that question to them and they’ve all said ‘yes’ they’d love to have us back. First and foremost it’s earning the respect and trust back from the public and Cricket Australia,” Warner said on Channel 9.
Pumped up to play Global T20 Canada
Warner was recently seen training at NSW and he’s pumped up to get a chance to play the upcoming Global T20 Canada. He alongside Steve Smith will take a part in the T20 league. Smith was taken in the second round by the Toronto Nationals, where he’ll play alongside West Indian star Darren Sammy. David Warner was selected in the third round of the draft by the Winnipeg Hawks with Dwayne Bravo sharing the dressing room alongside him.
“(It’s) making sure we’re putting our hands up in all these leagues and tournaments and grade cricket (so) we’re playing good enough cricket and warrant that call-up. We’re really pumped to be allowed to actually be allowed to go over and play in that tournament (in Canada). It is our road back. I’ve been back at NSW training … getting the muscles going again and strengthening them up to be able to go back to play cricket,” added Warner.
