Former India cricketer Aakash Chopra has predicted cold IPL auction for the veteran Australian cricketer David Warner. Warner was not retained by Sunrisers Hyderabad, and he was not bought by two new franchises – Ahmedabad and Lucknow for IPL 2022.
“He is great batter but no one will see him as captain. I have heard Lucknow were not interested in him. Chennai, Mumbai will never go after his name. Delhi, Punjab or Ahmedabad could bid for him,” said Aakash Chopra.
Warner is the highest run-scorer amongst overseas players in the IPL. The left-hander has amassed 5449 runs at an average of 41.59 in the 150 matches.
