Banned Australian cricketers Steve Smith and David Warner came back to form by scoring heavy runs in grade Australian cricket. Smith scored a patient half-century at the Glenn McGrath Oval, before getting caught at mid-on off a leading edge on 85.
Meanwhile, David Warner scored a century for his side against St George at Coogee Oval. He celebrated the milestone with a trademark leap in the air. Smith’s knock came on the same day Australia’s former vice-captain David Warner made his return to club cricket in Australia. Warner will play for Randwick=Petersham against St George at Coogee Oval.
Former Blackcaps opener and skipper Brendon McCullum took to Twitter to pass a humorous remark at Warner’s flamboyant celebration. He tweeted, “Geez Davey! This celebration is the equivalent of Sir Ed Hillary giving it large climbing his front steps, post-Everest! Hahaha. Or in horse racing parlance, it’s similar to if @HugeBowman was to give it “she’s apples” in a maiden midweek at Wyong! Ahahahaha.”
The explosive left-hander is likely to miss out on the important series against India which begins in November this year. India are scheduled to play 3 T20Is, 4 Test matches and 3 ODIs Down Under.
Here is Mccullum's tweet for Warner.
