Australia’s David Warner David Warner will take his T20 talents to Bangladesh after today announcing he has signed with Sylhet Sixers in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).
Warner himself revealed, through a video on the team’s official Facebook page, that he is now a ‘Sixer’ and will feature in the seven-team tournament which will run from January 5 to February 8.
“I’m very excited to let you know that I’m now a Sixer. I can’t wait to be a part of the Sylhet Sixers family. See you soon!” Warner said in the video.
The 31-year-old will be playing in his third T20 league this year as he serves a 12-month ban handed by Cricket Australia for his involvement in the Cape Town ball-tampering scandal.
After playing in the inaugural Global T20 tournament in Canada, he had a short stint in the NT Strike League and then went to West Indies to play for the St Lucia Stars in the Caribbean Premier League in August.
Warner had played for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) before he stepped down from captaincy following the ball-tampering row in March this year.
The former Australian vice-captain is one of the most destructive T20 batsmen in world cricket and has 7888 runs at an average of 35.21 and a super impressive strike rate of 142.4 in this format of the game.
