Warner to join St Lucia for CPL 2018

Warner, who's three months into a one-year Cricket Australia ban for his role in the Cape Town ball-tampering scandal, will replace compatriot D'Arcy Short at the St Lucia Stars in the Caribbean Twenty20 competition.

It looked like a very dominant purple patch period for the Aussie, before he was knocked down viciously by the ball-tampering row that shook the entire cricketing world back in March 2018, as Australia were playing a Test series against South Africa.

The accused mastermind of the disastrous plot to cheat in South Africa played a T20 practice match against the Australia National High Performance squad at Brisbane's Allan Border Oval on Thursday.

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. While Smith and Warner received one-year ban each, Bancroft received a nine-month suspension.

The 31-year-old is still able to play other forms of the game, though, and will make his return for the Winnipeg Hawks in the Global T20 Canada tournament later this month. "He is going to add a lot of value on the field and in the dressing room as we pursue our first Hero CPL Title", said Mohammad Khan the General Manager of Stars.

He will also feature in the NT Strike League in Darwin, which begins in July.

This will be Warner's first appearance in the Caribbean Premier League.

Warner is now serving a ban for allegedly masterminding the whole ball-tampering fiasco and St Lucia play their home matches at Gros Islet.
