Warner joins St Lucia Stars for CPL

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

David Warner has returned to the cricket field just two months after he was handed a 12-month ban over Australia's ball-tampering scandal. David is arguably one of the greatest batsmen of the modern era and a winning player.

Following his 12-month ban by Cricket Australia for the ball-tampering incident against South Africa in March, Warner has signed on for multiple Twenty20 tournaments and is also set to play grade cricket in Sydney.

Apart from worldwide cricket Warner and Smith were also removed from the Indian Premier League where they were appointed as captains of Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals respectively. The franchise announced that he will come in as a replacement for Australia's D'Arcy Short, who they said is unavailable for the tournament because he is touring India as part of an Australia A squad in August and September.

Journalist Shujaat Bukhari laid to rest in ancestral village in Kashmir
The journalist had been given five security guards by the government after a murder attempt in 2000. Bukhari, who was editor of Rising Kashmir , was shot dead by unidentified men Thursday evening.

It was reported that Warner was the mastermind of the ball-tampering scandal that also involved the then Steve Smith and opener Cameron Bancroft.

The once highly respected cricketer has been drafted to play for Winnipeg Hawks in the Global T20 tournament in Canada. St Lucia Stars failed to make it to the playoffs in CPL 2017. After playing in Canada, he will return to Australia for the Darwin Strike League in July.

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