new Delhi: The Best Captain Australia Never Had. That is, the best captain who never got a chance to take charge of Australia. When Rajasthan Royals won their first (and so far only) IPL title under Shane Warne, the question arose as to why the legendary leg-spinner was never made captain by Australia. After all, no one had given a price to Rajasthan Royals. He was the youngest player in this team. But Warne, who retired from international cricket even without the big names, was made a winner on the strength of his bowling and leadership. But why did Australia not hand over the reins to this player? However, few people know that Cricket Australia had given some reasons for this as well – these seven reasons were revealed later. Taught a lesson Captaincy comes with different responsibilities Given opportunities and proving he can’t handle it Not the only issue (Texting) Constantly in controversy A long list of Negligence Responsibility for building trust David Frith Gideon Hye, who wrote the book with him, wrote that there were discussions that said – ‘Warne is not fully disqualified’. That is, he had a chance. Warne has captained Australia in 11 ODIs but was not given this opportunity in Tests.

He had said, ‘You may have a different opinion about his personal behavior and his methods.’ According to documents revealed by Cricket Australia, Mullins had said, ‘But my opinion has consistently been the same regarding his handling of the big responsibility. Let me be straight: sooner or later he will disappoint you if he is given a responsible position.
