David Warner Playing In The Big Bash League Is A Major Boost For The Tournament

Warner was given the potential chance to rejoin the BBL after South Africa pulled out from an ODI series which was to occur in January. Warner was one of a few Australian legally binding players who got offers of up to $650,000 to take part in the UAE fire up, as per The Age.

Yet, on Warner’s occasion, that outcome has been stayed away from, which is a tremendous success for the Big Bash.

After Australia’s three-Test visit against South Africa closes in Sydney toward the beginning of January, Warner will be available for five BBL games.

High-profile T20 players from Australia with BBL contracts incorporate Glenn Maxwell, Marcus Stoinis, Mitchell Marsh, Matthew Wade, Adam Zampa, Aaron Finch, and Tim David.
