David Warner who was suspended for one year by Cricket Australia following the ball tampering incident will return to competitive cricket in the Sydney Premier Cricket season where he will play for Randwick Petersham.
Earlier the trio – Captain Steve Smith, vice captain David Waner and opening batsman Cameron Bancroft – was banned for their involvement in the ball tampering incident. However, they were later allowed to play the grade cricket.
Following the clearance, Randwick Petersham, a local club, contacted the batsman and Warner gave a nod for the same. The southpaw has agreed to play the first few matches of the Sydney Premier Cricket season and will be seen in action for the first time after the ban.
Club President Mike Whitney welcomed Warner to the Club. The former fast bowler informed that the left hander would be available to play the first three or four matches of the Sydney Premier Cricket season.
“We’re delighted to have him. He’s one of the best players Australia has had since World War Two. He’s been speaking to one of our club officials and he has committed to the first three or four rounds of the season. Why it is only three or four rounds at this stage, I don’t know. Everyone is excited to have him. He will be great in the changing rooms with younger players,” the Club President mentioned.
As per reports, Mike Whitney and other club officials are trying to rope in Warner for the good part of the season.
Whether or not that materializes, the return of Warner is a good new the cricketing fraternity. He was part of the ‘leadership group’ that was responsible was hatching the conspiracy as told by Cameron Bancroft in the press conference. Fans would now be excited to see Warner back in action.
