David Warner has already said playing BBL 2020-2021 is gonna be a tough ask after a long time in the bio-bubble.
During the pandemic, Warner has been a member of the Australian side in England and the captain of the Sunrisers Hyderabad.
Following the England tour, David Warner went straight to Dubai and has been travelling constantly over the past few months.
He has expressed doubts about players committing to 12 months in bio-secure bubbles as they may find it tough with family at home.
David Warner has officially said he will not be taking part in the BBL until his international career is over.
When the Big Bash League started, Warner was a crucial player and the tournament helped him find his way into the national side.
He has had success in the league but has not been apart of the Big Bash over the last seven years.
With the Big Bash coinciding with Australia’s test summer, many international players find it difficult to play the tournament as it gives them less time to relax in between international games.
Along with relaxation time, it is tough for players to form a niche in the league as they are constantly moving in and out of the tournament with other commitments.
These are the main factors as to why Warner has decided to not play Big Bash.
Doing so also allows him to spend time with his family during a tiring schedule.
With three world cups and the ashes coming up over the next few year, David Warner and the Australian side will surely have their hands full.
For now, they are set to take on India in a few days.
Warner and Smith were not in the side the last time India toured Australia.
Their absence has been felt with India winning their first test series in Australia.
With the return of Smith and Warner the series is likely to be more evenly matched and closely contested.
