Australian cricketer David Warner is all set to do commentary during the ODI series between England and Australia. After that ball tampering scandal this will be the first series of Australia under the captaincy of Tim Paine and head coach Justin Langer. The ODI series will start from June 13 and David Warner will commentate for Channel Nine’s coverage. Warner will join the commentary panel during the second ODI which will be played on 16th June.
The Director of Sport of Channel Nine, Tom Malone said, “Dave is the best one-day and T20 batsman of the past decade so he’s perfectly placed to join our coverage for the UK series”. “People have tried to paint Dave as the villain in all this, but he’s been hurting as much as the others.
“We’ve had a professional relationship with Dave for five years now. We’ve always found him to be a pretty normal and humble bloke. He just wants to atone for his mistakes and move on – I hope Australia gives all of them that chance.”, he added.
Warner is also set to take part in the inaugural season of the Global T20 Canada tournament, starting June 28. There he will also join his banned team mate Steve Smith. They both are into third month of their one year ban and ready to make a comeback through this leaugue in Canada.
After playing in Canadian leaugue Warner will participate in the Northern Territory Strike League in Darwin in July where he will play two matches while his other suspended partner Cameron Bancroft who was banned for nine months will play the entire tournament.
