“If Cricket Australia have been to raise the ban on Warner, what’s that going to do? I imply, you’re not going to nominate Warner captain of any Australian staff, are you? He’s too outdated. And he’s not going to be given the position as a result of the captain has acquired to be younger sufficient to have the ability to lead by instance, and people days are gone for David,” Chappell was quoted as saying by Channel 9’s Large World of Sports activities.
Chappell feels Warner wished his captaincy ban to be lifted as he wished to steer his BBL aspect Sydney Thunder.

“They (CA) take care of themselves, they don’t take care of the participant. This (Warner saga) is simply one other instance of Cricket Australia not being excellent, it has been dealt with badly. My level is that Cricket Australia won’t ever do something within the curiosity of the gamers or the participant; they may solely ever do something to guard their very own bottom.”
