Australia’s left-handed batsman David Warner, who is serving one-year ban over ball-tampering became a righty last night to smash 14 runs off 3 balls on the bowling of Chris Gayle at Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) Twenty20 tournament.

Ever since his involvement in the sandpaper scandal at Cape Town last year, Warner is struggling to get his batting form back and that was one of the reason the opener came at number 3 to bat. But that is until the left-hand batsman went right. Literally.

The 32-year-old opener who is playing for Sylhet Sixers in BPL turned heads when he took guard right-handed against the bowling of West Indies’ cricketer Chris Gayle midway through the 19th over of the Sylhet Sixers innings against Rangpur Riders on Wednesday.

After batting with his usual left-handed stance for 32 balls, Warner was struggling against Gayle’s right arm off-break bowling and found it difficult to hit him away because of his height and the lengths that he was bowling.

But the Australian had another plans at the back of his mind as after playing couple of dot balls in the 19th over, he switched to guard as a right-handed batsman and smashed Gayle for a six on the very first bowl after the switch.

Warner, who is naturally right-handed with his throwing arm made some room lofted Gayle straight over the bowler’s head and over the ropes, sending the crowd and social media into a fluster.

He didn’t stopped there as he paddle-swept the next ball to a boundary and played a reverse sweep on the last bowl of the over to collect 14 runs in just last 3 balls of the 19th over.

Watch: David Warner batting right handed and smashing Gayle for a six and couple of boundaries.

Warner’s entertaining run concluded with an unbeaten 61 off 36 balls – 47 off 33 with a left-hander’s guard and 14 off 3 with a right-hander’s. His whirlwind knock helped the Sixers post 187 for 5 on the board.

David Warner return to Australia from Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) with elbow injury

After a outstanding performance last night at BPL 2019, Australia’s opener Warner has returned back to his home country for medical assessment after having reporting pain in his elbow, Cricket Australia confirmed.

After Steven Smith, Warner is the second Australian to make an early exit from the Bangladesh Premier League. Smith, too, had complained of elbow pain and had surgery on the same immediately after returning home last week.

Warner and Smith’s 12-month bans for their involvement in the ball-tampering incident in Cape Town expire on March 28, around a time when Australia are scheduled to play five One-Day Internationals against Pakistan in the UAE.
