David Warner went through one of the worst phases of his career during the infamous ball-tampering scandal which hit the Australian cricket. He was slapped with the 12-month ban along with the then skipper Steve Smith by Cricket Australia (CA) and was also having a few personal problems at the same time. However, it seems that he has managed to leave the scars of the incident behind as the left-hander has scored a stroke-filled ton in his comeback knock in a practice T20 game.
Warner went on to score 130 runs during his stay in the middle at Brisbane’s Allan Border Oval on Thursday against Australia National High-Performance Squad. He unfurled some of his trademark strokes including the reverse sweep as the spectators enjoyed his performances a lot.
According to the reports in Mail Online, the spectators were really impressed with his knock but they believed that the bowling attack was very ordinary. “I think he hit like 18 sixes… at least half a dozen went over the grandstand. ‘It looked like he had left the scandal behind and moved on… like he didn’t have a care in the world,” one of the fans said after the game. After the game, the batsman was also seen mingling with the players of the opposition giving them some necessary tips.
What next for Warner?
David Warner is all set to feature in the inaugural edition of Global T20 Canada which will commence on June 28. His form comes as a good news for his franchise Winnipeg Hawks which will play the tournament under the leadership of Dwayne Bravo. The Australian will play his first match on June 29 against Montreal Tigers and he will love to hit the straps soon in the tournament.
Steve Smith will also feature in the league for the Toronto Nationals and will be part of the opening game of the season against Vancouver Knights. He will face his teammate Warner on July 2 and it will be interesting to see the way they fare in that game.
