St. Lucia, June 16: Caribbean Premier League (CPL) outfit St. Lucia Stars have signed banned Australia batsman David Warner in their squad for the upcoming season beginning August 8, the West Indian club announced on Saturday.
Ex-Australia vice-captain Warner was banned by Cricket Australia, along with former captain Steve Smith and batsman Cameron Bancroft, for their part in the ball-tampering controversy during the Test match in Cape Town in March.
The experience of David Warner in the shortest format of the game reigns supreme over any other player in the world as he has amassed 7668 runs in 243 T20 games alone, including six tons and 59 fifties.

The Florida rapper was reportedly leaving from a motorcycle dealership today when someone ran up to his vehicle and shot him. With controversies overshadowing his career, Spotify briefly blacklisted Onfroy's songs from its service earlier this year.
Short is no longer available for the tournament after being selected for Australia A's tour of India in August and September.
"We are excited to bring David to the St Lucia Stars".
Following the Canadian league, Warner, along with Bancroft, will play in Darwin's limited-overs Strike League. He was the captain of Sunrisers Hyderabad team that won the IPL title in 2016.
This will be Warner's first appearance in the Caribbean Premier League. St Lucia Stars failed to make it to the playoffs in CPL 2017. "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", Stars' General Manager, Mohammad Khan, was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.
