Serving ban for his involvement in the sandpaper scandal that marred cricket in Australia, David Warner is doing his best to make the most of opportunities he is getting to play. 

Currently participating in the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) as the captain of Sylhet Sixers, left-handed Warner changed his stance mid-over and smashed Chris Gayle for a 6 and a couple of 4s. 

Gayle, who plays for Rangpur Riders, started the over well by giving just 2 runs in 3 balls. 

But Warner had other plans. He used his golfing skills and took everyone aback by batting with right hand and hitting three shots, back-to-back. 

In the post-match presentation, Warner said:

It was one of those things at the back of my mind as I couldn’t get Chris away because of his height and the lengths that he was bowling. I play golf right-handed, so I thought I might as well come and swing and clear the ropes. It came off.

This is not the first time he tried something like this, though. In a T20 in 2010 against West Indies, he changed his stance but the umpires intervened saying it would be unfair towards the fielding side.

Warner is naturally a right-hander and bowls right-arm medium.
