When asked about details of the Brexit conversation, he said: 'It was just a loose conversation. She recovered quickly as Harry led her and helped her keep her balance.

It was reported that Warner was the mastermind of the ball-tampering scandal that also involved the then Steve Smith and opener Cameron Bancroft. David is arguably one of the greatest batsmen of the modern era and a winning player.

The 31-year-old is still able to play other forms of the game, though, and will make his return for the Winnipeg Hawks in the Global T20 Canada tournament later this month. Apart from worldwide cricket, the trio is also disallowed from competing in top-grade domestic cricket in Australia, but remain free to play in overseas leagues. Opening batsman, Bancroft, was handed a ban of nine months and he is eligible for selection in the national side from the last week of December this year. He's also been a fine leader in the format, having led the Sunrisers Hyderabad to an IPL title in 2016.

St Lucia Stars begin their CPL campaign against Trinbago Knight Riders on August 8.
