David Warner returns to cricket in Australia after ban

Warner, however, said he and Bancroft were still on good terms as they worked their way through the suspensions and had socialised together in Darwi

Sydney: Australia opening batsman David Warner has played his first cricket match in Australia since his ball-tampering suspension, scoring 36 Saturday in a one-day match in Darwin’s limited overs Strike League.

Warner played for the City Cyclones in the 50 overs match against the Northern Tide at the Marrara Cricket Ground. Australia batsman Cameron Bancroft, also suspended over the ball-tampering incident, played in the same on an adjacent ground.

Warner and Australia captain were suspended for 12 months and Bancroft for nine months for their involvement in the incident during a test against South Africa at Cape Town in March.

“I’m here to play cricket and I doing that,” he said after he scored 36 runs from 32 balls for the City Cyclones in the Strike League.

“I wouldn’t be here today and continue to keep working my backside off to keep scoring runs for each team that I play for if I didn’t it. I wouldn’t be here, I’d probably retire.”

Warner is also “100 percent” committed to returning to the national side once his ends, if he continues to score runs and merits selection.

“I’ll be putting my hand up as much as I can,” added the 31-year-old, who said during the height of the furore that he did not know if he had an international future.

“This is just a little stepping stone to continue my progress to enable myself to keep scoring as many runs as I can for every single team I play for in the next eight months.”

Their suspensions cover international matches and Austalia’s main domestic competitions but the trio are free to play in independent leagues such as the Strike League. Warner and Smith recently played in a Twenty20 tournament in Canada.

Warner, however, said he and Bancroft were still on good terms as they worked their way through the suspensions and had socialised together in Darwin.

“He bought me breakfast this morning,” Warner said.

“I bought him dinner the other night and we’re good mates.”

नाशिकमधील भाजपाचे पदाधिकारी अमोल इघे यांची हत्या झाली.
आज त्यांच्या घरी जाऊन कुटुंबीयांचे सांत्वन केले.
त्यांच्या कुटुंबीयांशी आणि काही स्थानिक नागरिकांशी चर्चा केली.
अतिशय गंभीर अशी ही घटना आहे.
