The banned Australian opener, David Warner is looking forward to playing for Randwick Petersham cricket club in the Sydney Premier Cricket Season as he tries to get his career back on track. This after fellow opener – Cameron Bancroft – was also given a green signal to play in the Western Australia Premier Cricket, just a few days ago.
Mike Whitney, the former Aussie fast bowler, and president of Randwick Petersham Cricket club gave the confirmed news that Warner will be completely available for the club’s first three or four games. He said, “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.”

The destructive opener, who has been handed out a suspension of one year by Cricket Australia (CA) in late March, will finally to get some time on the field. In recent times, turning out for the club was never a possibility for David because of various international and T20 league commitments.
The club’s president said that they are looking forward to witnessing Warner’s presence. Whitney said, “Everyone is excited to have him. He will be great in the changing rooms with younger players.”
As Warner’s ban extends to state matches as well, this is the only form of cricket that will help him regain his confidence and it will also give him some apt match practice before his imminent return to the international level in March 2019.
