Banned Australia cricketer David Warner is set to return to captaincy in the Global T20 Canada league. Warner, who is banned for life from holding any leadership position in Australian cricket will be leading the side in the absence of Dwayne Bravo. “He’s going to be a good leader,” Winnipeg coach Waqar Younis was quoted as saying by BBC. “He’s a team man.
Former Pakistan fast bowler Waqar Younis, who is coaching the Hawks, backed the opening batsman to add valuable experience in his new role.
“I’m sure he’s going to be a good leader when it comes to captaincy,” Younis was quoted as saying by cricket.com.au.
Warner was captain of Australia’s T20 team before his suspension and led Indian Premier League side Sunrisers Hyderabad to victory in the 2016 edition.
The left-hander, who has scored just six runs in three matches so far in the tournament, replaces the injured Dwayne Bravo.
