Chappell, who is 71 years old, believes that Warner would have been a capable leader if he had been given the opportunity to assume that role at a younger age.

David Warner was punished with a lifetime suspension from captaincy for his involvement in the ball tampering scandal that occurred in Cape Town in 2018, popularly referred to as “Sandpapergate.”
Chappell also criticised Cricket Australia for the manner it handled the situation, saying that the board was “covering its own behind.” Chappell made this accusation in the context of the matter.

“My argument is that Cricket Australia will never take any action that is in the best interest of the players or the player; they will only ever take any action in order to protect their own rear end.”
