Time to end David Warner’s leadership ban : Greg Chappell | cricket news

Sydney: East Australia Captain Greg Chappell has added his voice to calls for the lifting of the ban on David Warner, who played a formal leadership role in Australian cricket.
Batsman Warner was barred from holding any leadership position in the Australian game for life due to his leading role in Notorious. New Land ball tampering scandal of 2018
Current Test captain Pat Cummins is among those who have called for the cancellation of the Cricket Australia bar, saying he “fundamentally” disagreed with the concept of the ban which failed to recognize that people can learn and improve. can do.
“He clearly had a central role in what happened but he wasn’t alone and I don’t know why he should be treated differently,” Chappell told Fox Sports News on Tuesday.
“He has served his sentence, he is a good leader and there is no doubt that if he had got a chance, I am sure he would have captained the team quite well.
“I think he’s paid his penalty and it’s time to open up for leadership roles.”
At the time of the ball-tampering incident, both the vice-captain and captain of the Test team, Warner and Steve Smith were banned from elite cricket for one year.
Smith was banned from leadership roles for only one more year and was made the vice-captain of the Test team ahead of the 2021-22 Ashes series.
Cricket Australia chief executive Nick Hockley said last week that although Warner was an “outstanding” leader in the team, there were no plans to revoke the ban.
