The 31-year-old was handed a one-year ban from international and state cricket by Cricket Australia for his role in helping to devise a plan to rub sandpaper on the ball during a Test match against South Africa in March. Warner has already agreed deals to play in lower-level Australian grade cricket and at a tournament in Canada in July. <p></p> <p></p>The CPL announced on Saturday that the swashbuckling opener would replace his compatriot <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/darcy-short/">D'Arcy Short </a> in the St Lucia side for their T20 event which runs from August 8 until September 16. "We are excited to bring David to the Saint Lucia Stars," said Stars general manager Mohammad Khan. <p></p> <p></p>"David is arguably one of the greatest batsmen of the modern era and a winning player. He is going to add a lot of value on the field and in the dressing room as we pursue our first CPL title." Warner struck 109 against <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/south-africa/">South Africa </a> in a one-day international in Saint Kitts the last time he played in the Caribbean two years ago.
