David Warner is all set to make his return to the 22 yards by featuring in the first few matches of the Sydney Premier Cricket season for Randwick Petersham.

Australian vice-captain David Warner who is now banned from playing worldwide and state cricket, is on the verge of reviving his cricket for a club.

Warner was part of the trio, Bancroft and Steve Smith being the others, to have been banned by Cricket Australia for twelve months following their involvement in the controversial ball-tampering saga in the Test series against South Africa. However, the suspended Aussies were later allowed to play the grade cricket.

Warner has been on the books at Randwick Petersham since 2013/14 after joining from the neighbouring Eastern Suburbs club.

Government confirm cut in maximum stakes on FOBT
Figures published by stopthefobts.org show Deeside punters put almost £7.5m into the high stakes machines in 2016. The maximum stake on "crack cocaine" gambling machines will be slashed from £100 to £2, it was announced today.

Club President and ex-Test fast bowler Mike Whitney was excited to have David Warner in the team and informed that the left-hander will be available for the first three or four matches.

"We're delighted to have him". He has made a decision to play club cricket in Sydney to get his career back on track. "He's one of the best players Australia has had since World War II", he told the local Southern Courier newspaper on Wednesday.

Warner has been on the books at Randwick Petersham since 2013-14, but has rarely played due to state, global and Indian Premier League commitments. "He will be great in the changing rooms with younger players", he added.

Fellow Australian Cameron Bancroft was also given the green light to play in Premier Cricket.
