David Warner is set to join St Lucia Stars in Caribbean Premier League

Gros Islet, June 16: The St Lucia Stars have announced that Australian opener David Warner will join them for the 2018 Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

Warner will replace fellow Australian, D'Arcy Short, who is no longer available for the tournament due to being selected for Australia A's tour of India which takes place in August and September.

Warner has played in T20 tournaments around the world, but this will be his first appearance in the CPL.

GT2O READY TO SPREAD WINGS

The last innings Warner had in the Caribbean saw him score 109 in an ODI vs South Africa in 2016, but this will be his first visit to play T20 cricket in the region since he represented Australia against the Windies in March 2012.

A veteran of 243 T20 matches, 70 of which are internationals, Warner brings a huge amount of experience to the Stars squad.

With 7,668 T20 runs and six T20 hundreds, fans of the CPL can look forward to him adding to that tally when the Stars get their tournament underway on August 8.

Speaking about the signing of Warner, Stars' General Manager, Mohammad Khan said: "We are excited to bring David to the Saint Lucia Stars. David is arguably one of the greatest batsman of the modern era and a winning player. He is going to add a lot of value on the field and in the dressing room as we pursue our first Hero CPL Title."

Warner, who has been banned from playing international cricket after the Cape Town ball tampering fracas, will also play in the Global T20 tournament in Canada.
