Australia star cricketer David Warner's lifelong ban from leading Australian cricket may soon come to an end.
According to a report by Ben Horne of the News Corp Australia, Warner's leadership suspension could be reviewed by Cricket Australia (CA) in the wake of the "Sandpaper-gate" controversy.
The 35-year-old batsman has been in great form recently. Even in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, he was able to score some impressive runs with the bat.
Steve Smith, David Warner, and Cameron Bancroft were all banned by CA after admitting to ball-tampering during the 2018 Cape Town Test between South Africa and Australia.
In contrast to Warner and Smith, Bancroft was only suspended from domestic and international cricket for nine months.
Smith was also barred from holding any leadership positions for an additional 12 months as part of his sentencing. By virtue of the belief that he came up with the idea of sandpapering the ball, Warner has been banned for life.
The ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 was a huge success for Warner, who returned to international cricket with a bang. In the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2021, he was the standout performer for Australia, winning Player of the Tournament award.
