David Warner has joined Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft in accepting the sanctions imposed on him by Cricket Australia (CA) for his role in the ball-tampering incident during the Cape Town Test against South Africa recently.
Smith and Warner had been slapped with 12-month bans from international and domestic cricket, while Bancroft was given a nine-month suspension.
The three players had the option of appealing against the bans, but Smith and Bancroft confirmed on Wednesday that they wouldn’t be doing so, and Warner did likewise on Thursday, taking the Twitter route to make public his opinion just like the others did.
“I have today let Cricket Australia know that I fully accept the sanctions imposed on me. I am truly sorry for my actions and will now do everything I can to be a better person, teammate and role model,” tweeted Warner.
