On Saturday afternoon, David Warner took to Twitter to announce a thorough review of his 12-month Australian leadership ban. The ban was imposed by Cricket Australia in 2018 in the wake of the ball tampering incident in South Africa.

Following his review, Warner has released a formal statement outlining his ongoing commitment to the game of cricket.

“I’ve dedicated the last two years of my life doing everything within my power to be the best leader, mentor and role model that I can be and to grow as an individual. I know that I haven’t always gotten it right, and there are things I didn’t do well in the past, but I’m learning every day and doing my best to be the role model and ambassador cricket fans expect of me.

“I’ve taken some hard decisions and I’m sure there will be more to come, but I’ve never wavered from my commitment to make cricket a better place for players and fans alike. I’m grateful to the ICC and Cricket Australia for allowing me to conduct this review and for their support thus far.

“I’m now looking forward to the future and playing a significant role in helping shape the game for the better.”

Warner’s review of his ban indicates a renewed commitment to the sport of cricket and a greater focus on leadership. It remains to be seen what the exact ramifications of this review will be, but Warner’s statement sends a strong message that the game of cricket has no place for illegal ball tampering and that he is serious about setting a positive example for other players and fans of the game.
