Banned David Warner faces Australian pace duo in nets

by Freddie Young 2 minute read

Banned batman David Warner batted against Australia’s pace bowlers during a net session in Sydney on Sunday.

The same day that Australia’s T20I side faced India, Warner was helping Josh Hazlewood and Pat Cummins prepare for the upcoming Test series against India.

Warner is currently serving a one-year ban from international and state cricket for his part in the ball-tampering scandal that rocked Australian cricket.

The aggressive batsman is currently plying his trade for Sydney Grade side Randwick Petersham. The very same day, Warner scored 89 off 41 balls for the club.

Aussie fans will be pleased to hear that Cummins and Hazelwood were bowling at full tilt, looking good as they troubled Warner throughout the net session. The pair were under the watchful eyes of Justin Langer and bowling coach David Saker.
