David Warner statement 

My family is more important to me than cricket.

Over the course of the past nearly five years since the events that occurred during the Third Test in Cape Town, even with all the humiliation and attacks that they have had to endure, I have enjoyed the unwavering support and love of my wife Candice and my three daughters, Ivy Mae, Indi Rae, and Isla Rose.

Since that Test and even though my ban from leadership roles may never be lifted, I have taken it upon myself to reform, to rehabilitate and to transform my approach to the game.

I have served and been subject to a crushing, unprecedented, penalty that has horribly impacted me and my family for the past nearly five years without the prospect of any relief until now.

On 21 November 2022, the Cricket Australia Code of Conduct for Players and Player Support Personnel was amended to permit players to apply for a modification to Long-Term Sanctions.

With the announcement of the amendment to the Code of Conduct, I held the hope and was encouraged, that I would be given a proper opportunity to demonstrate to the Review Panel that I have demonstrated my deep regret and remorse; and that my rehabilitation and transformation are profound.

With the encouragement of administrators and colleagues and in accordance with the rules under the Code of Conduct, on 25 November 2022 I submitted an application to Cricket Australia for a modification to my life-time ban from leadership positions in cricket.

I hoped I would be given the opportunity, under the established practice and procedure of the Code of Conduct that is reflected in the amendments, to demonstrate that I have satisfied the necessary requirements for a modification to my ban.

What did David warner do 

David Warner’s manager James Erskine has claimed that Australia were given the go-ahead to tamper with the ball after their defeat against South Africa in Hobart in 2016-17, when Australia were bowled out for 85 and lost by an innings and 80 runs in little more than two days.

After the match, then South Africa captain Faf du Plessis was even found guilty of ball-tampering after applying saliva to the ball with a mint in his mouth.

“Two senior executives were in the changing room in Hobart, and basically were berating the team for losing against South Africa,” Erskine told SEN radio. “And Warner said we’ve got to reverse swing the ball, and the only way we can reverse swing the ball is basically by tampering with it. So they were told to do it.”

Erskine did not specify who exactly “told” them to tamper with the ball, and did not name the executives either who were present after the loss.

Speaking after Warner released his statement saying he was withdrawing his appeal to have his leadership ban overturned, Erskine also reiterated previous views about the 2018 Newlands ball-tampering controversy, saying that more than three people had to know about the plans and that the “truth will come out”.

Discussing the punishments handed out after Newlands, Erskine said that Warner had been treated much more harshly than others, and that Cricket Australia should have handled overturning the leadership ban internally rather than through a review panel which decided they wanted to re-examine the whole incident.


In an infamous year of discontent, Cricket Australia found itself again reeling on the eve of what is usually a celebrated occasion on the annual calendar, after the small square of sandpaper that caused such controversy in South Africa in 2018 continues to grate at the soul of Australian cricket.

An unprecedented embarrassment at the time, anger exploded again the day before the Adelaide Test courtesy of David Warner’s extraordinary public complaints of his treatment.

In an escalating scandal, hours before the second Test against the West Indies began, the batter’s wife Candice accused CA of putting their family “through hell”.

“We’ve lived with this pain, through this pain since 2018,” she told Sydney radio station Triple M. “And it gets to a point where enough is enough. Dave’s statement was very powerful and it has to be.

We’ve been through hell. To put our family, also his teammates, through everything again and the disappointing thing for David is this has been dragged out so long.”

Her interjection follows Warner’s decision to withdraw on Wednesday from an independent review into whether CA should lift a lifetime captaincy ban against him.

The process began informally in February but only became official when he made an application for a review of the decision, which included character references from Greg Chappell and current Australia captain Pat Cummins, in late November.
