XtraTime Web Desk: Australian cricketer David Warner has followed the footsteps of Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft by deciding not to challenge the ban imposed on him by Cricket Australia. Warner is serving a ban for a period of 12 months for his role in ball tampering scandal.

Warner took to twitter to confirm he's accepted his lengthy suspension from international and Australian domestic cricket.

"I have today let Cricket Australia know that I fully accept the sanctions imposed on me," Warner tweeted on Thursday afternoon (AEST).

"I am truly sorry for my actions and will now do everything I can to be a better person, teammate and role model.

"I have today let Cricket Australia know that I fully accept the sanctions imposed on me. I am truly sorry for my actions and will now do everything I can to be a better person, teammate and role model."

It means Warner will not play for Australia for the next 12 months and has been banned from any leadership role in Australian cricket.

There was a speculation that the swashbuckling opener might challenge the sanction after discussing with his lawyers. But his decision not to contest the charges handed down by CA indicates he holds out hope of one day pulling on his Baggy Green again.

The former captain and vice-captain will be available to return to all forms of cricket in March 2019, while Bancroft will be permitted to play again in December this year.
