‘I don’t regret anything…’ – Australian opener David Warner on 2018 ball-tampering scandal

David Warner, a prominent left-handed batter from Australia, has had a distinguished international career thus far. While Warner has won numerous World Championships with Australia and has consistently performed well for the team, his lowest point occurred in 2018 when he was given a one-year suspension on suspicion of ball-tampering. The infamous ‘sandpaper-gate’ episode occurred in South Africa, and although Warner returned to the team a year later, he has not been a part of the official leadership team since.

During an interview with Herald Sun, when questioned if he regretted the incident, Warner responded bluntly that nobody is “perfect” and that he doesn’t regret “anything” in his life. Warner is an Australian actor.

I enjoy where I am at the moment: David Warner

“I don’t regret anything. You make your own path, right? No one is perfect and you should never judge anyone until you’re perfect. If you try and be this robotic person and individual that wants to please everyone, it’s going to come down anyway, because you can’t please everyone. Whatever has happened in my past, it’s made me the individual I am and has probably got me to where I am,” said Warner

Warner further said that he is happy with his career at present and doesn’t want to change anything from the past. “My circle around me is very, very small. They’re the only people I trust and I can always go to them for advice. If I did go back and make changes I wouldn’t be the person who I am and what I value. I’ve got no regrets, and I enjoy where I am at the moment,” said Warner.

The Australian batter added that he received no support from Cricket Australia officials during his 12-month suspension as a result of the 2018 ball-tampering controversy. He spoke about the time away from the game by making an analogy in which he compared himself to a “washing machine” that was used to “rinse and recycle.”
