Banned Test opener David Warner will commentate on the TV coverage of the second one-day international between England and Australia next week.

Warner will appear on Channel 9’s coverage match at Cardiff next Saturday.

The 31-year-old is getting ready to make his cricketing comeback in Canada while serving his 12 month ban from international and first-class cricket.

The match is the second of a five-ODI and one T20 International tour, with the Aussies captained by Tim Paine and coached by Justin Langer.

The game Warner’s commentating on will be shown on 9’s main channel, while the other four and the T20 will be shown on the affiliate channel Gem.

"Dave is the best one-day and T20 batsman of the past decade so he's perfectly placed to join our coverage for the UK series," Nine's director of sport Tom Malone said to cricket.com.au.

"People have tried to paint Dave as the villain in all this, but he's been hurting as much as the others.

"We've had a professional relationship with Dave for five years now we've always found him to be a pretty normal and humble bloke. He just wants to atone for his mistakes and move on - I hope Australia gives all of them that chance."
