CASTRIES, St Lucia (CMC) — Banned Australia star David Warner will make his debut in appearance in the Caribbean Premier League, organisers announced today.

The 31-year-old left-hander will turn out for St Lucia stars and replace fellow Australian D'Arcy Short who has been selected for the country's A-side's tour of India in August and September.

Warner was slapped with a one-year ban by Cricket Australia earlier this year for his role in the ball-tampering scandal during the tour of South Africa.

While he is prohibited from taking part in international cricket and domestic cricket in Australia, he is free to play abroad, and recently signed up for the inaugural Global Twenty20 Canada league in Toronto starting later this month.

Stars general manager, Mohammad Khan, said Warner would be an asset to the franchise which is yet to win the CPL title in the five-year history of the tournament.

“We are excited to bring David to the Saint Lucia Stars. David is arguably one of the greatest batsman of the modern era and a winning player, “Khan said.

“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.”

Warner is an attacking left-hander who has excelled in all formats of the game. He averages 48 from 74 Tests, 43 from 106 One-Day Internationals and has amassed 7 668 runs from 243 T20s at an average of 35.

The CPL bowls off August 8.
