The infamous ball-tampering incident during Australia tour of South Africa in 2018 framed three Australian names mainly. One of those was David Warner, and his life post that incident, affected him in too many ways. Apart from receiving a ban from the competitive cricket world, people and fans kept on hindering his personal life, which affected his family too much. In the same light, Warner’s wife Candice has come up to defend her husband’s role in the same scandal.
She has expressed openly that only one part of the story is out for the people to judge us. There is more to the story, which will be told someday in a memoir. She spoke about the infamous third Test, which disgraced the Australian cricket team, and the pain she and her family went through on that tour. She stated that the public criticized David and her being “bad parents” and she being a “really bad mother” to their three small daughters.
She talked about that tour on an episode of SAS Australia on air, the last night. She is one of the high-profile participants on the Seven Network’s show.
“Too many people I feel are quick to make a judgment or opinions on myself or my family. When we came home from South Africa in 2018 when there was an incident with the Australian cricket team. There was a ball-tampering incident.”
Candice was later asked if her husband had ‘supposedly’ tampered the ball. To which, she responded by saying, “No. That’s other people’s opinion. He has never said his part.”
Warner’s manager was approached several times
She even told that Warner’s manager James Erksine has been approached many times with handsome offers to reveal the things, but they haven’t done so. She believes that there will be the right time when David will probably open about it. He might write a book on the same. Candice revealed that the stress of all these sufferings even led to her miscarriage at one point.
“It has, but even before that were incidents in South Africa where people were trying to make fun of me, mock me, belittle me in front of my family, because of an incident that happened in the past and they think that is funny. It was just a bad mistake. I don’t want to talk about it,” she added.
Warner’s manager Erksine told Sydney Morning Herald that Warner will publish a book once he retires, “There will be a time and place. At some stage, he will write a book,” Erskine said.
