David Warner is set to start next season for Sydney grade club Randwick Petersham during his year-long ban from state and international cricket.
Warner, like his former Australia captain Steve Smith, is suspended for 12 months from professional cricket following the ball-tampering controversy which engulfed the Cape Town Test against South Africa two months ago.
But the combative opener is free to play for his club, and has indicated to them that he will do so this autumn.
Randwick Petersham president Mike Whitney told the Southern Courier: "We're delighted to have him.
"He's been speaking to one of our club officials and he has committed to the first three or four rounds of the season."
Warner, his fellow opener Cameron Bancroft - who is serving a nine-month ban but is set to play for his club side in Western Australia - and Smith were all embroiled in the plot to alter the condition of the ball by using sandpaper.
Smith and Warner were stripped of their respective captaincy and vice-captaincy roles.
