David Warner’s leadership during the recently concluded Indian Premier League (IPL) stands out as an example for all inspiring cricketers. Warner was simply perfect with his captaincy for the Sunrisers, as apart from being tactically on the right side; Warner led from the front and by example.

His tournament aggregate of over 800 runs in the particular edition just seconds that.

After watching Warner’s heroics in the IPL, former Australian captain and veteran pundit Ian Chappell has suggested that the southpaw will be a really successful skipper for Australia if he gets the chance.

Warner currently is the vice captain of the Australia team, as Steve Smith leads the Kangaroos across all three forms. But in order to lower Smith’s burden, Warner could well be handed the captaincy of a shorter format.

“If Smith wants to do it you’ve got to give him the job, but I think that sooner or later, probably sooner rather than later, he’ll find that it’s a pretty onerous load — not just the captaincy side of it but playing all three,” Chappell said.

“He’ll probably find that he’ll have to decide to give one away at some point and yes, I think Warner would make a decent captain, in fact I think he could be one of the better ones.”

Chappell also urged the Australian selectors to give Warner an opportunity to lead the side. “The only way to get better at it is to do it, so any opportunity they can get, the selectors should give David a chance to captain,” Chappell said.

“Obviously they’re going to have to rest Smith at some stage or another. The smart thing to do would be to make sure they don’t rest Smith and Warner at the same time. When Smith is resting they can give Dave the opportunity to captain the side.”
