“I think it’s probably disappointing for the England team and the country,” Warner said in Brisbane on Tuesday, ahead of the first Ashes Test. “I think he’s let a lot of people down. I would have loved for him to be out here, because I know what a competitor he is on the field, and he’s a world-class player.”
“It’s obviously up to the English police first,” Warner said. “But at the end of the day he knows he’s made a mistake, and it’s about him getting the respect back from his players and fellow countrymen.
“I wish everyone well. We’re all sportsmen. We’re trying to achieve the same thing and that’s to win. So I wish everyone good luck.”
