PNS Desk: Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) team Sylhet Sixers have posted a video in their official Facebook page hinting that they have signed big-hitting left-handed batsman David Warner.

The video teaser has the caption “He is a leader. He is a mighty hitter. He is a superstar. Who do you think is going to come as a new Sixer this season?” But they make it pretty obvious in the video that they have signed Warner as the video is a compilation of his big hits.

The Australian opener, currently serving a one-year ban from international cricket for being involved in ball tampering during a Test match against South Africa at Newlands, has been playing franchise Twenty20 cricket. His last stint was for St Lucia Stars in the Caribbean Premier League.

The former Australian vice-captain is one of the most destructive T20 batsmen in world cricket and has 7888 runs at an average of 35.21 and a super impressive strike rate of 142.4 in this format of the game.
