Ball-Tampering Incident Might End Australians National Career

Ball-Tampering Incident Might End Australians National Career

The former Australian captain, Ian Chappell, feels that the ball-tampering incident will have a huge impact in the lives of the three cricketers.

David Warner might not play for the national side again, according to Ian Chappell

The 74-year-old, on his visit to India to witness his first IPL game between Mumbai Indians and Delhi Daredevils, describes his 50-year-old relationship with the country.

"I first came here in 1969 with the Australian team. One of the first things I noticed about the Indian fans was that they were very knowledgeable. They were telling me things about my career that I didn't know about," says the 74-year-old.

Chappell thinks that the absence of Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft from international cricket will give India advantage in their test series against Australia this winter.

"I don't know if India will win comfortably, but they'll win. It's certainly India's best opportunity ever to win a series in Australia. Australia will be still hard to beat because they've got a very good bowling attack. The hardest part of the game is to get 20 wickets, and Australia will do that. But they won't have many runs to play with.”


Chappell doesn’t agree that the punishment given to the three cricketers was harsh.

"I think Cricket Australia got it right. CA has done particularly Smith and Warner a huge favour, because you imagine if Smith and Warner were playing next summer in Australia against India, they're going to get booed at probably all of the Australian grounds. That wouldn't have been great for CA's image."

When questioned about the future of the trio, he said, "I'm not sure if CA wants Warner back. Knowing the history of CA pretty well, I think they've probably been looking for a reason to get rid of him because he was quite outspoken during the dispute between the players and the administrators last year. So he may not be back. Smith will be back but I don't think he will captain Australia again."
