Suspended Australian cricketer, David Warner’s wife, Candice made a shocking revelation.

She revealed she suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage following his husband’s involvement in the infamous ball-tampering saga in the Cape Town Test against South Africa. During the 1st match of the series, there was a verbal duel between South African wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock and Warner. De Kock insulted his wife which sparked a trigger of verbal volleys.

Candice blamed herself for her husband’s part in the scandal. She further added the taunts his husband faced in South Africa had a huge impact.

“I hoped the terrible stuff was behind us. We love Cape Town, and it’s where Dave proposed to me in 2014. I was beginning to feel that first stage of being pregnant – the subtle changes to my body was kicking in. We were overwhelmed, knowing another little Warner was on the way,” Candice was quoted as saying by Women’s Weekly.

“I don’t think either of us realised how much we longed for this baby. We had been trying since last July, and I did a test when we first got to Cape Town,” she further added.

Warner and Candice are parents to two daughters, Ivy Mae and Indi Rae. She stated the couple was overjoyed at the prospect of welcoming a 3rd child.

When the news of the three cricketers Cameron Bancroft, Steven Smith and David Warner heading home hogged the limelight, Candice feared the hectic 23-hour flight journey be to take its toll on the child who was mainly due to the added stress.

Unfortunately a couple of weeks later, David and Candice had to face one of the most shocking aspects of their life.

“I called Dave to the bathroom and told him I was bleeding. We knew I was miscarrying. We held one another and cried… The miscarriage was a heartbreaking end to a horror tour. The ordeal from the public humiliations to the ball tapering had taken its toll,” she revealed.

Cricket Australia handed Warner and Steve Smith a one-year suspension after their involvement in the ball tampering scandal. Hence, the duo wasn’t able to take part in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League as well.
