Former Australia vice-captain, David Warner has tearfully apologised for his role in the Cape Town ball-tampering scandal.

Meanwhile, he admitted that he might never play for Australia again.

A devastated Warner broke down many times, as he read a prepared statement during today’s press conference. Describing his actions as “inexcusable and deeply regrettable”, Warner apologised to teammates, support staff, Australian and South African fans and vowed to change.

To the fans and the lovers of the game who have supported and inspired me on my journey as a cricketer, I want to sincerely apologise for betraying your trust in me,” he said. “I have let you down badly. I hope in time I can find a way to repay you for all you’ve given me and possibly earn your respect again,” he added.

Meanwhile, Warner avoided questions regarding his specific involvement in the incident.

CA stripped him of his vice-captaincy, slapped with a 12-month ban and also removed from any leadership position with the national side for the rest of his career.

There’s a tiny ray of hope that I may one day be given the privilege of playing for my country again, but I’m resigned to the fact that that may never happen again,” the southpaw added.

CA also charged him for providing advice to Bancroft on how to tamper with the ball “including demonstrating how it could be done’.

Meanwhile, he also led the Newlands match officials by concealing his knowledge of and involvement in the plan.

In conclusion, he said he wants to move from this, and the first thing is the well being of his family.
