I'm not a criminal': Warner hits out at Australia captaincy saga

SYDNEY: A frustrated David Warner Monday said he was "not a criminal" and everyone should have the right to appeal as Cricket Australia paved the way for his lifetime leadership ban to be lifted.

The dynamic opener and former Test vice-captain was banned from any leadership role in Australia over his part in the Cape Town ball-tampering affair in 2018.

But under an amendment to CA's code of conduct confirmed on Monday, he will now be able to request a review of the sanction, a move previously not permitted.

The code of conduct changes were first raised nine months ago and Warner said it had dragged on too long.

"It's been drawn out, it's traumatic for me and my family and everyone else involved in it," the Australian newspaper quoted the 36-year-old as saying in Melbourne.

"I think it's just about being fair that at the end of the day, I'm not a criminal. You should get a right of appeal at some stage, you know.

"I understand that they put a ban in place, but banning someone for life I think is a bit harsh.

"So it's just an opportunity to come out and actually, you know, show that I'm actually remorseful. I've done my time to get back into the Australian cricket setup."
