David Warner talks about 2018 ball-tampering scandal

David Warner talks about 2018 ball-tampering scandal

Australia’s explosive batter David Warner has talked about the infamous 2018 sandpaper-gate scandal, which saw his involvement in the ball-tampering scandal against South Africa alongside skipper back then Steve Smith, and Cameron Bancroft.

When asked if the vice-captain back then regrets his involvement in the sandpaper-gate scandal, Warner simply says no one is perfect and if something has happened, people should learn to move on rather than sticking to that moment.

“I don’t regret anything. You make your own path, right? No one is perfect, and you should never judge anyone until you’re perfect. If you try and be this robotic person and individual that wants to please everyone, it’s going to come down anyway because you can’t please everyone,” he said.

Talking about his metamorphosis as a person, Warner believes he has changed a lot after what had happened. Opening up on the critical time he had to go through involving in a humanly mistake, he defines that he has only ‘genuine’ people left around him.

“Whatever has happened in my past, it’s made me the individual I am and has probably got me to where I am. My circle around me is very, very small. They’re the only people I trust, and I can always go to them for advice. If I did go back and make changes, I wouldn’t be the person I am and what I value. I’ve got no regrets, and I enjoy where I am at the moment,”

Unfortunately, Warner has no one left from the organization (CA). He has also shaped praises on George Bailey and Andrew McDonald for their services to Cricket Australia. It is pertinent to mention that Warner has been pleading CA to consider him for captaincy roles once again, lifting the lifetime captaincy ban from him.

“The people that were close to me really looked out for me. Within the organization, though, nope. None. Unfortunately, that’s what it was like back then. You were like this washing machine. You’re just rinsed out, and recycled, the next player comes in. A lot has changed since then, and George Bailey and Andrew McDonald are doing a great job now. You expect the organization to actually support you,”
