Disgraced David Warner make roaring comeback to cricket

New Delhi:

Former Australian vice-captain David Warner has made a comeback to cricket since his ball-tampering suspension and scored 36 runs in a One-day match in Darwin’s Strike League in Australia.

The Sydney-born southpaw played for the City Cyclones in a 50 overs match against the Northern Tide at the Marrara Cricket Ground.

Aussie batsman Cameron Bancroft also made a comeback to cricket and played in the same tournament but on an adjacent ground.

Warner and Australia captain Steve Smith were suspended for 12 months and Bancroft for nine months for their involvement in the ball-tampering incident during a Test match against South Africa at Cape Town. Cricket Australia suspended Warner, Bancroft and Steve Smith but their ban is only for international matches but the trio are free to participate in independent leagues such as the Strike League.

Both Warner and Smith recently took part in a T20 competition in Canada. The Delhi Daredevils man was playing some brilliant shots but fell to a top-edged catch.
