David Warner replaces D'Arcy Short in Caribbean Premier League

Candice Warner blamed herself for the part David Warner played in the scandal

Warner, along with former skipper Steve Smith, was handed a one-year ban from both domestic and worldwide cricket while bowler Cameron Bancroft was given a suspension of nine months for their involvement in ball-tampering scandal that took place during the third Test of the four-match series against South Africa in March this year.

Ex-Australia vice-captain Warner was banned by Cricket Australia, along with former captain Steve Smith and batsman Cameron Bancroft, for their part in the ball-tampering controversy during the Test match in Cape Town in March. Subsequently, Warner and Smith were handed a 12-month ban while Bancroft was slapped with a nine-month ban.

Speaking about Warner's signing, St. Lucia Stars' General Manager, Mohammad Khan said that the franchise was excited to have one of the greatest batsmen of the modern era.

He cannot play state and global cricket in Australia but can take part in domestic tournaments overseas. He further added his expectations of Warner adding value to the dressing room and on the field as well.

The destructive opener, who was denied the permission to appear in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for his involvement in the ball-tampering scandal, has started his way back into competitive cricket.

In the CPL, he got a contract from the St Lucia Stars and the team is delighted to get hold of the left-hander for his services this season. The month-long tournament will also feature fellow Aussies Shane Watson and Chris Lynn, apart from other foreign stars like Hashim Amla, Martin Guptill, Ross Taylor and Imran Tahir.
