Steve Smith’s & David Warner’s Ban on IPL
The recent Australia vs South Africa Test Series has been exciting, both on field and off the field.
There has been too much of sledging by the Australians. The staircase scuffle between David Warner and Quinto de Kock and the massive ball-tampering scandal have been the talk of cricket town.
During the third test match, the cameras caught Cameron Bancroft using sandpaper to roughen up one side of the ball. Later, CA revealed that Captain Steve Smith and Vice-Captain David Warner were also involved in the ball tampering plot.
All three players received a lengthy ban from domestic and international cricket. While Smith and Warner were convicted with a twelve-month ban, Cameron was given nine months.
New Captains for RR & SRH
As a further blow, the BCCI and IPL Board have also banned Smith and Warner from playing this year’s IPL.
Initial reports suggested that they might play in IPL but will step down as captains of Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, the IPL officials finally decided to ban them against playing this year’s IPL.
- Rajasthan Royals have decided that Ajinkya Rahane will lead their team & Heinrich Klaasen will replace Smith.
- With Warner not playing the IPL, Kane Williamson will be this year’s skipper for the Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Cameron Bancroft does not play in IPL.
Injured Mitchell Starc ruled out of IPL
Further, CA had tweeted on Friday that Mitchell Starc will not play the third Test against Australia due to a stress fracture in his right leg. Also, the tweet read that he will be back home and will not play this year’s IPL .
The left arm pacer was bought by the Kolkata Knight Riders for Rs. 9.4 crores. His absence is a huge setback for the KKR.
The IPL Season 11 is all set to commence on April 7 at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai where Chennai Super Kings will play against the Mumbai Indians.
