‘We have been through one of the toughest times ever the last few months’: David Warner breaks silence over wife Candice’s tragic miscarriage amid Cricket ball-tampering scandal

David was banned for 12 months by Cricket Australia after being accused of masterminding a plot to change the condition of the ball during the third Test in Cape Town in March.
