It is incorrect for the captain to say “I don’t want to know” when is involved. The captain needs to know, he needs to know about it, and he has to do something about it.
“Steve Smith has a two-year ban from Captain and so does David Warner, or Steve Smith has a ban on life and so does Dave Warner, and so on,” said Ian Chapel. Said.

Ian Chappell, Cricket Australia would never have forgiven him if he had committed such ill-advisedness, perhaps closing his door for the rest of his life.

“And if I was fooled and did what Tim Paine did, I was hoping that Cricket Australia wouldn’t ask me to resign. They robbed me of my job and I was a player. “Ian Chappell said.
