The stellar left-handed Aussie batter David Warner has had an outstanding international career. While representing Australia, he has won numerous World Championships including T20 World Cup and the ODI World Cup. He has been an integral part of the team. However, he hit his rock-bottom in his career in 2018 when he was given a one-year suspension on ball-tampering accusations. David Warner has now addressed the controversy.
David Warner opens up on the matter
The dark episode has been dubbed “sandpaper-gate,” occurred in South Africa, and although Warner returned to the team a year later, after the ban was lifted, he has not yet been able to get the leadership ban lifted. Even after trying so hard and proving his worth, not being considered for the team’s leadership has always been a hindrance for him.
Warner was recently questioned if he regretted the incident, during an interview with Herald Sun, but the Australian superstar said bluntly that nobody is “perfect” and that he doesn’t regret “anything” in his life.
“I don’t regret anything. You make your own path, right? No one is perfect and you should never judge anyone until you’re perfect. If you try and be this robotic person and individual that wants to please everyone, it’s going to come down anyway, because you can’t please everyone,” he said.
“Whatever has happened in my past, it’s made me the individual I am and has probably got me to where I am. My circle around me is very, very small. They’re the only people I trust and I can always go to them for advice. If I did go back and make changes I wouldn’t be the person I am and what I value. I’ve got no regrets, and I enjoy where I am at the moment,” said Warner.
