Cricket Australia (CA) is come up with an interesting offer for their premier batsman and star player across all formats, David Warner ahead of the upcoming edition of the Big Bash League (BBL).
David Warner decided to get featured in the UAE-based T20 league which is going to conclude soon. In that case, David Warner will not be able to play in their domestic T20 tournament, Big Bash League which will be a huge loss for Cricket Australia, as the left-handed batsman is one of the most-loved cricketers all around the globe.
Considering the recent reports, Cricket Australia is already having trouble with Channel 7 which are the broadcasting partner of the Big Bash League.
As per the reports, Cricket Australia is all set to offer David Warner more than $500,000 to make him available for the Big Bash League. Notably, the left-handed batsman hasn't been featured in this tournament since 2014.
