Though CA banned them from playing worldwide and Sheffield Shield cricket, they were free to play at club level and domestic tournaments in other countries.

The former Vice Captain of Australian cricket team David Warner is ready to get featured in the upcoming season of Caribbean Premier League.

David Warner will join St Lucia Stars as a replacement for D'Arcy Short, it was confirmed on Saturday (June 16). "He is going to add a lot of value on the field and in the dressing room as we pursue our first title", Mohammad Khan Stars' general manager said on Warner's signing.

The opener was given a nine-month suspension from global and state cricket in March after admitting attempting to alter the condition of the ball during the Newlands Test against South Africa.

JD.com serves as one of the main competitors to China's Alibaba, with more than 300 million active users of its online stores. The shares are equivalent to a almost one percent stake in the company, according to a JD.com spokesman.

The 31-year-old has also committed to playing two one-day matches in the Top End as part of the NT Strike League in late July, while fellow suspended player Cameron Bancroft will play the entire tournament.

The last time Warner played in the Caribbean he scored 109 runs in a ODI against South Africa in 2016. David is arguably one of the greatest batsman of the modern era and a winning player.

The destructive opener, who was denied the permission to appear in the Indian Premier League (IPL) for his involvement in the ball-tampering scandal, has started his way back into competitive cricket.

St Lucia Stars begin their CPL campaign against Trinbago Knight Riders on August 8.
