David Warner to play for St Lucia Stars in CPL T20

Share

31 year old Australian batsman David Warner will be playing in the Caribbean Premier League this summer as he has been selected by the St Lucia Stars as a replacement player for D'Arcy short.

While he is prohibited from taking part in worldwide cricket and domestic cricket in Australia, he is free to play overseas, and recently signed up for the inaugural Global Twenty20 Canada league in Toronto starting later this month.

The 31-year-old is banned from playing global or state cricket due to his role in the ball-tampering scandal during Australia's Test against South Africa at Newlands in March.

"We are excited to bring David to the St Lucia Stars", he was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.

Ex-Australia vice-captain Warner was banned by Cricket Australia, along with former captain Steve Smith and batsman Cameron Bancroft, for their part in the ball-tampering controversy during the Test match in Cape Town in March.

With 7,668 T20 runs and six T20 hundreds, fans of the Hero CPL can look forward to him adding to that tally when the Stars get their tournament underway on 8 August.

Newly appointed Australia head coach Justin Langer stated that he would happily welcome back Bancroft, Smith and Warner once their suspensions end.

Warner will make his Caribbean Premier League debut after signing on to join Daren Sammy, Kieron Pollard and Lendl Simmons for the upcoming West Indies-based domestic tournament beginning in early August.
