CRICKET- Former Australian skipper and Vice-captain Steve Smith and David Warner are all set to play in Bangladesh Premier League.

Smith has joined BPL side Comilla Victorians for the second phase of the BPL as a replacement for Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Malik.

“Shoaib Malik won’t be able to play for the whole tournament. He will play in the first round and Steve will join after that,” a team spokesman said.

Victorians coach Salahuddin said of Smith’s signing, “The balance of the team will be better. I needed an experienced batsman in the team. We needed a batsman who would understand the game situation and control the game.”

David Warner has signed for Sylhet Sixers.
