David Warner will play club cricket for a side in Sydney while he is banned at state and global level for his part in the ball-tampering scandal. Bancroft was also involved in the ball tampering incident which resulted in him being banned for nine months.

Warner will return after he was handed a one-year ban by Cricket Australia in March for his role in the ball tampering saga that unfurled during the Newlands Test. However, the suspended Aussies were later allowed to play the grade cricket.

Speaking about Warner's new stint, Mike Whitney, an ex-Australia pacer and the current President of Randwick Petersham, said: "We're delighted to have him".

"He's one of the best players Australia has had since World War Two". Why it is only three or four rounds at this stage, I don't know.

Warner has been on the books at Randwick Petersham since 2013-14 after joining from the neighbouring Eastern Suburbs club. "He will be great in the changing rooms with younger players".

The cricketing fraternity was shocked when the Cameron Bancroft was caught trying to alter the condition on the cameras during the Test match against South Africa in Cape Town.

The Cricket Australia ban extended to state matches, with the three players at the centre of the controversy - Warner, Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft - only able to ply their trade in grade cricket during the suspensions.
