Aaron Finch is the captain of Australia’s ODI team. But he announced his retirement after the series against New Zealand. Now David Warner is expected to be the new captain.

Cricket Australia: After Aaron Finch’s retirement from ODI cricket, Cricket Australia has to choose a new captain. David Warner seems to be leading the race for Australia’s new captain. In fact, David Warner was banned for life for not being included in the leadership group due to the ball tampering controversy. However, David Warner will meet Cricket Australia chief Nick Hockley regarding his ban.

Ban on David Warner

In fact, three Australian cricketers – then captain Steven Smith, vice-captain David Warner and Cameron Bancroft were banned for ball-tampering. This case is known as the Sand Paper Gate scandal. Smith was banned from captaincy for two years, while Warner was banned for life. David Warner is back in the team after his ban ends. He led the team to several campaign victories, including last year’s T20 World Cup win in the UAE. His behavior is also outstanding. Several current and former cricketers, including Test captain Pat Cummins, have called on the CA to lift the captaincy ban on Warner.

David Warner may get the captaincy!

After Aaron Finch’s retirement from ODIs, Australia’s ODI captaincy is now vacant. Warner is now exploring opportunities to take over the captaincy. On Tuesday, Warner said the scandal was not the only reason behind his life ban, but more. He said that the dispute between the players and the CA regarding the new MoU was also a big reason. However, David Warner said, “A lot of things happened before 2018 with the board. There are many more besides MoUs. I was sentenced for the same reasons as before the 2018 scandal. I spoke to Nick Hockley. All this is very difficult. “For now, things may change in the next week or two.”
