Warner set to return to cricket

16th May 2018, 19:36 by Tom Hill

Ex-Australia vice-captain David Warner will resume his cricket career at Sydney side Randwick Petersham.

The 31-year-old is serving a year-long ban for ball-tampering but the sanction only applies to international and state cricket.

Warner has been banned since March and also resigned from his role as captain of Indian Premier League side Sunrisers Hyderabad.

He was suspended alongside captain Steve Smith and batsman Cameron Bancroft but Randwick club president Mike Whitney insists it is a great deal for the club.

"We're delighted to have him," he told reporters.

"He's one of the best players Australia has had since World War Two."

Bancroft have also been provided with a minor reprieve having been cleared to play Premier Cricket in Western Australia for Willetton.
