The former Vice Captain of Australian cricket team David Warner is ready to get featured in the upcoming season of Caribbean Premier League. David is arguably one of the greatest batsman of the modern era and a winning player, "Khan said". He further added his expectations of Warner adding value to the dressing room and on the field as well. It is interesting to note that while the 31-year-old was not barred from plying his trade in the franchise-based tournaments around the world, BCCI went ahead and suspended him, along with Smith, from taking part in the IPL 2018.

The last time Warner played in the Caribbean he scored 109 runs in a ODI against South Africa in 2016.

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

Warner, who was banned by Cricket Australia for 12 months for his involvement in a ball tampering scandal, will replace compatriot D'Arcy Short, who pulled out of the tournament since he will be touring India with Australia A in August and September.
