Disgraced Australian cricketer Warner ends 2018 with good news

SYDNEY: Australian cricketer David Warner has ended the year 2018, which saw him fall from grace, with a positive news.

The disgraced cricketer’s wife revealed she is pregnant again after suffering a miscarriage in the aftermath of her husband´s part in a ball-tampering scandal that rocked the game.

Candice Warner took to Twitter on Monday evening to make the announcement, ending a horror 2018 for the couple on a bright note.

“We are so grateful for all the love and support everyone has shown us this year. It is with a full heart that we would like to share with you that in 2019 our family of 4 will become a family of 5,” she said.

They already have two young children, Ivy Mae and Indi Rae.

Candice Warner revealed in May that she lost a baby a week after her husband´s tearful press conference in Sydney in late March after he was sent home from Australia´s tour of South Africa and banned for a year.

She attributed the loss to stress and an arduous flight home, describing the couple´s devastation at realising she was miscarrying.

Warner was seen as the key instigator of the attempt by Cameron Bancroft to alter the ball with sandpaper during Australia´s Test against South Africa in Cape Town.

Then-captain Steve Smith was also banned for a year, with the pair´s suspensions due to expire in late March. Bancroft was exiled for nine months and returned to action with the Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League on Sunday.
