Disgraced Aussie cricketer, David Warner must be wondering what hit him, as the brilliant cricketer’s life has been turned upside down in a matter of days.
Warner was allegedly the chief instigator of the ball tampering scandal that took place in the Cape Town test match last week, which created much furor in the cricketing world.
Warner, along with Smith and Bancroft were the only three players who knew about this, and were subsequently caught red handed by the television cameras.
Cricket Australia took severe action against them, as Bancroft was banned for nine months, while Smith and Warner were barred from playing state and international cricket for twelve months.
While some people have criticized the severity of the decision, Cricket Australia had to take some serious action and show the world that you cannot get away from cheating in the game, no matter how big of a name you are in the world of cricket.
Warner and Smith and two of the best batsmen of their generation, and their absence will be a huge blow to the Australian cricket team. The pair will also miss the IPL as a result of this, as SRH and RR will miss their brilliant Aussies.
Ahead of the IPL, Sunrisers star Bhuvneshwar Kumar was seen on Instagram, as the pacer started a video in which he was talking to his fans ahead of the news edition of the league.
It was an Instagram Live video, in which people from all over the world were sending in their messages and questions to Bhuvi.
In what came as a surprise to many, David Warner also sent a ‘Hello Bhuvi’ message to the Indian pacer, as fans quickly picked up that image and circulated it on social media.
Wonder what Bhuvneshwar and the SRH franchise thought about it!
