The 15th edition of the Indian Premier League has already been lit up by the addition of two new teams. The league, now, has a total of 10 teams with the inclusion of the duo. The IPL veteran skipper David Warner has been playing this phenomenal league since 2009 and has been in the auction pool only twice.
He started his career representing Delhi Daredevils and was transferred to Sunrisers Hyderabad after spending five years in DD’s squad. The 35-year-old left-handed batter is the only player to get the Orange Cap thrice in the tournament and he also led his team forward to grab their first-ever title in 2016. He is currently the fifth highest run-getter in IPL.
After the well-known rift between the management and the player, he recently confirmed that he won’t be retained in the squad which might be a piece of sad news for the fans but not for the bidding teams who would be looking for a legendary player to lead them from the front in the tournament.
Here is a list of few teams who could hire David Warner as a captain for the upcoming seasons
In the recently concluded auction for the two new teams, the Lucknow city’s team has been brought for a hefty price tag of 7090 crores by the RPSG group who was previously owning the dissolved Rising Pune Supergiant’s team in 2016-17.
The Rising Pune Supergiant’s team management has been successful, considering its short tenure in the IPL. It managed to climb the ladder of playoffs in its second season itself and ended as the runners-up under the captaincy of Steve Smith.
After its dissolution, the RPSG group has been desperate to own a team in this league and has grabbed the opportunity with both hands now. As the management has had a successful tenure after naming the Australian as their skipper, they could go for a similar tactic and hence, pick the Australian (Warner) as their captain.
