Have a look at 4 teams that can pick David Warner as skipper in IPL 2022

Getting benched from the Sunrisers Hyderabad team during recently concluded IPL to becoming the Man of the Tournament in ICC World Cup T20, Australia’s batting maestro David Warner has again proved his mettle. We all know that he didn't have a great time for Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL 2021. And hence, Warner was not retained by Sunrisers Hyderabad.The IPL veteran skipper has been dominating this cash-rich league since its inception. With the addition of two new teams the upcoming mega-auction has already been lit up.

Being in the auction pool only for two times, the southpaw began his journey representing Delhi Daredevils and was moved to Sunrisers Hyderabad after spending five years in DD’s squad. The 35-year-old is the only player to get the Orange Cap thrice in the tournament. Additionally, the left-handed-batsman also led his team to seize their first-ever IPL title in 2016.

However, the last few months for the 5th highest run getter of the IPL had his own ups and down after the widely known split between the management and the player, he later-on confirmed that he won’t continue with the Sunrisers and has parted ways with the beloved team. Hence, bidders in the mega auction would be looking forward to pick this little Australian batting beast.


Here’s a look at 4 teams who could pick David Warner as a captain for the upcoming seasons


1. Lucknow

The Lucknow city’s team has been bought for a humongous price tag of 7090 crores by the RPSG group who was formerly owning the Rising Pune Supergiants team in 2016-17.

It was quite a ride for the RPSG team considering their short span of 2 years. They missed the IPL title by a whisker as Mumbai Indians won by 1 run against them. Notably, they picked Steve Smith as skipper which proved to be a smart choice.

Hence, the RPSG group could apply the similar thought of getting an Australian as their captain and could go for Warner as their choice.


2. Ahmedabad

The other new team .i.e Ahmedabad team was bought by CVC Capital – the former owner of Formula One. Notably, this team was second and final team to be picked in the auction.

The new team would be eyeing for a skilled and experienced enthusiast to be their face of the franchise and lead their team to new heights. Notably, David Warner has been loved by the Indian fans as spectators always cherish a cricketer who is also a game changer. In addition to this, Indians have always loved him during his TikTok stint.

Also, the southpaw helped clinching SRH their maiden title single-handedly. And hence, the addition of this player in the squad could be an added advantage of picking this player as he has loads of experience. The Ahmedabad franchise team could pick this swashbuckling batsman as he brings in the brand value to the team.


3. Royal Challengers Bangalore

Over the years, RCB has always played and grabbed players who are the superstars of the game with big-name players like Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers, and Glenn Maxwell. But the team has failed to bring a trophy till date. Even though the team already has an huge fan base and gun-players too, but luck has gone against them.

Despite being consistent with the Indian skipper Virat Kohli as captain since 2013, the team has not played upto the potential. This team has been at the receiving end during three finals between 2009 and 2016.

Earlier, during the start of the second phase of IPL 2021, Kohli announced that he wouldn’t be leading the side in the upcoming years. This turned out to be a blow for hardcore RCB fans. And hence, RCB management might pick David Warner who could lead the side to their maiden IPL trophy.


4. Punjab Kings

The Punjab Kings management has been plying their trades and has applied various permutations and combinations over the years for the captaincy to clinch an IPL trophy. Earlier known as Kings 11 Punjab, the team has just succeeded to enter twice into the playoffs.

The team was at their highest peak in 2014 when they completed the league as the runners-up. After many disappointing seasons, the management rebranded and renamed the franchise as Punjab Kings in 2021 looking for a fresh start only to lose.

Talking about various permutations and combinations, the team has tested 13 different captains right from the beginning and this cost as a tactical blunder as no captain was highly experienced. A fresh is waiting for the Kings to correct their past mistakes and start afresh again by bringing David Warner as their skipper who could bring some glory to their side. Additionally, Punjab kings has not retained their skipper KL Rahul which opens up ways for Warner.
