David Warner is one of the greatest openers of all time and has also achieved a lot in international cricket. He has won the World Test Championship with Australia in 2023, the T20 World Cup in 2021, and two ODI World Cups in 2015 and 2023. He recently retired from ODIs and Tests after the three-match Test series against Pakistan was concluded. Recently, the Zimbabwe all-rounder and his Dubai Capitals teammate Sikandar Raza talked about David Warner’s captaincy and how he has a very calm personality as a leader.

David Warner has captained Australia in some matches and has also led T20 franchises across the world. He led the IPL franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad to the IPL trophy in 2016 beating Royal Challengers Bangalore in the finals that season. David Warner is one of the greatest Australian cricketers and has a terrific record in all three formats for Australia. He was also leading the ILT20 franchise Dubai Capitals.

Sikandar Raza was asked about David Warner’s leadership finesse and he said that Warner as a leader allows the players to make their own decisions and does not want things to be done in his way. David Warner allows his bowlers to set their field and his batters to bat the way that will get the best out of them according to Raza. David Warner is a great leader and an even better batter who has scored ample runs in every format for Australia.

After being asked about Warner’s leadership, he told SportsNow, “No, no, no. I mean, David is quite big on the fact that we all know that, you know, we all have got here with the skill sets. That we have. All we have to do is use the same skill sets according to the conditions that are presented to us. So, no I wouldn’t say that he is strict and he wants things to be done his way.”

“David Warner Is Pretty Chill” – Sikandar Raza

“He allows you to have your field sets when you are bowling. He allows you to bat the way you think it will get the best out of you. David is pretty chill like that. And also, like, for the fact that we all know that you have been playing franchise cricket for so long,” Sikandar Raza added about David Warner as a captain.

David Warner is currently playing for Australia in the T20I series against West Indies where Australia has already taken an unassailable lead of 2-0 in the three-match series. They are looking to whitewash the West Indies team in the T20I series just like they did in the ODI series. The third and final T20I will be played on Tuesday, February 13.
