Toronto: Banned former Australia vice-captain David Warner was on Wednesday named captain of Canadian Twenty20 franchise Winnipeg Hawks.
“He’s going to be a good leader,” Winnipeg coach Waqar Younis was quoted as saying by BBC.
“He’s a team man. He’s up front and he likes to give whatever his knowledge is. He’s always there.”
Previously, Warner has skippered the Australian T20I team and Indian Premier League side Sunrisers Hyderabad. The dashing southpaw helped Sunrisers win the 2016 edition of the IPL.
Warner is currently serving a year-long ban from domestic and international cricket in Australia for his role in the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa.
