David Warner gives up on a bid to overturn his lifetime ban

David Warner withdrew a bid to overturn his lifetime Australian leadership ban on Wednesday, claiming an independent review panel wanted to “conduct a public spectacle” to have a cleansing and it would be traumatic for his family.

He wrote on the eve of the second Test against the West Indies in Adelaide that he is not prepared for his family to be the washing machine for cricket’s dirty laundry.

The dynamic opener and former Test vice-captain was banned from any leadership role due to his part in the Cape Town ball tampering affair in 2018. He was also slapped with a one-year playing suspension, but he reclaimed his place in the national side across all three formats of the game.

Last month, Cricket Australia amended its player code of conduct policy which paved the way for him to request a review of the captaincy ban before a panel of three code of conduct commissioners.

But he has seemingly now shut the door with a scathing, and lengthy, statement on social media claiming the panel had made “offensive and unhelpful” comments about him.
