David Warner’s international ban has come to an end. He is now available for selection at the highest level. Warner had got banned for one year post his involvement in ball-tampering scandal. Former England captain, Mike Atherton has praised David Warner’s conduct during and after the whole fiasco that shocked the cricketing community.
“He has stayed out of view. He has refused all of the presumably many juicy offers to reveal his side of the story and maintained a telling silence,” Atherton wrote in an article for The Australian.
“Warner has simply kept his head down, his mouth shut and accepted the punishment.
“The list of those who have left their jobs in Australia in the past year is a long one: gone are the chief executive James Sutherland, chairman David Peever, high-performance manager Pat Howard, head coach Darren Lehmann and bowling coach David Saker.
“Having wisely kept his counsel, Warner will outlast them all.”
David Warner has made a scintillating return to IPL. He has made half-centuries in first two games for Hyderabad and is looking in red-hot form.
