After debuting in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) earlier this year, David Warner is ready for his debut in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL), after signing with Sylhet Sixers. The franchise also recovered Sandeep Lamichhane, an 18-year-old Nepalese runner, completing his share of two direct contracts abroad for BPL 2018-19.
Sylhet also added baton-guardian Liton Das to his list of Victorians from Comilla, in addition to
Warner is currently in the seventh month of the one-year ban that Cricket Australia gave him for his involvement in the scandal of Newlands. He was not allowed to play for Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL, but returned to the cricket competition with a season with Winnipeg Hawks in the Global T20 Cananda in June and July of this year. Later he signed with Santa Lucía Estrellas in the CPL, but his form was not encouraging. After handling 109 runs in eight innings with a strike rate of 114.73 in the GLT20, he scored 220 runs in nine innings with a strike rate of 111.67 in the CPL and found particularly strange ways to get out.
However, he hit the form when he hit a 98-ball in Sydney cricket against an attack that included Josh Hazlewood.
The BPL is scheduled to begin on January 5, 2019, with the draft on October 28 this year. This season, all franchises were allowed to choose a maximum of two foreign players, who had not played in the BPL 2017-18.
