David Warner’s captaincy ban should end, demands Greg Chappell

Australia’s star batsman David Warner has been banned for life for not captaining because of the ball-tampering controversy in 2018. However, for some time now, there has been a demand to remove the ban on David Warner. In this demand, David Warner has also got the support of the great Australian batsman Greg Chappell. Greg Chappell said that the life ban imposed on David Warner’s captaincy should be abolished as the star batsman has the potential to become a successful captain of Australia.

Warner, Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft have faced bans due to the 2018 ball-tampering scandal in South Africa. Warner and Smith were banned for one year and Bancroft for nine months. Smith was stripped of the captaincy and banned for two years while Warner was handed a life ban for captaincy.

Chappell told Fox Sports News, “He had a major role in what happened, but he wasn’t the only one. Don’t know why he was treated differently. He has served his sentence. If given a chance, he can become a good captain. The ban imposed on him should be lifted.

This demand has been happening for some time now

Former captain Ian Chappell also said why Warner has been banned when Smith can be given the captaincy again. Last month, the Test captain also demanded the removal of the ban on Warner.

The discussion of removing the ban on Warner is also intensified because Australia’s limited overs cricket captain Aaron Finch has indicated that he will retire soon. If he retires, then David Warner can be seen taking charge of the Australian team till next year.
