David Warner, speaking at a press conference for the first time since his suspension expired, credited wife Candice for an impressive comeback, following a World Cup hundred in Australia’s 41-run win against Pakistan in Taunton on Thursday, reports

Calling Candice his “rock”, David Warner revealed how his wife motivated him during his toughest phase. David Warner was given a one-year ban by Cricket Australia, along with Steve Smith, for involvement in a ball-tampering scandal in March 2018. Since his return, David Warner has managed scores of 89 (not out), 3, 56 and 107 in four World Cup 2019 matches so far.

“I was always coming back to international cricket if selected. The thing that kept me going was my wife and kids. My wife is just, she’s just my rock. She’s unbelievable. She’s determined, disciplined, selfless,” Warner told reporters after the match.
