“This indicated Warner – who had been advised by CA against a public outburst – didn’t trust the authorities to be mindful of his interests. It was a wise decision by Warner as CAabouts renowned for only protecting their own interests, not those of players,” he added.

Ian Chappell on David Warner’s Captaincy

The former Australian Captain made a shocking claim about David Warner. “I doubt Warner was expecting to gain a leadership position in the Australia set-up even with a successful review of the ban he received after the ball-tampering debacle in South Africa in 2018,” stated Ian Chappell.

“He’s too old to be considered for a captaincy position in the Australian regime despite the fact that he has always had great leadership instincts,” he added.
