Warner Recalls The Tough Times After Receiving The Allan Border Medal

Warner Recalls The Tough Times After Receiving The Allan Border Medal

During the acceptance of the Allan Border Medal, David Warner broke down on Monday. The emotional Aussie cricketer recalled the sandpaper incident that kept him out of cricket for 12 months.

Warner Recalls The Suspension Period

The sandpaper scam saw Warner getting suspended for 12 months from cricket. On Monday when he was awarded the best Australian cricketer award by Cricket Australia he could not hold his emotions. The left-hander shared his determination to prove himself yet again after the comeback. “I know I’ve let you guys down in the past. It’s just been remarkable to come back. With the World Cup, to not go the whole way was disappointing. The Ashes, retaining that was fantastic – I obviously didn’t turn up and I apologise for that – but I really had the hunger and determination to come back and do the best for our team.”

Warner further added that having a summer like this after the comeback and being able to contribute to the same have him true happiness. The star opener spoke his heart out and shared how tough his time was during the ban.” To go back there and be able to be reintegrated into grassroots, go back to grade cricket, put a smile on people’s faces that way – it really helped me get to where I am today. Without that, getting cricket taken away from you – something I’ve always dreamt of – it really, really hurt,” he further added.

Warner Thanks His Wife & Family

Warner was a star player for Australia’s World Cup 2019 campaign as well as in the Ashes. He ended up the World Cup scoring 647 runs just behind the leading run-scorer Rohit Sharma’s 648. The man did not forget to mention his wife and called her an inspiration.

“My wife … f***… as I said before, my rock. You’re absolutely amazing. I don’t know what can ever break you. You’re absolutely fantastic. You’re an inspiration, not just to me but to the girls. It’s hard for a man to stand up here and say a lot of nice words about people, but you always seem to bring the best out of me and the kindness of my heart. I can’t thank you enough for what you do for me and our family. I love you dearly.”
