Melbourne: Former Australia legend Shane Warne believes the team’s new captain Tim Paine is not living as a captain for most days. He said that he suspects that Pen will be able to handle this responsibility because he believes that wicketkeepers are not able to handle the captaincy responsibility. After a one-year ban on Steve Smith and David Warner in the ball tampering case, Cricket Australia (CA) has made Penn the captain of the team for England tour.
Warne said in an interview with Fox Sports, “I can say in front of Adam Gilchrist (former Australian wicketkeeper) that most wicket-keepers cannot be good captains. I believe that wicketkeepers are very correct as vice-captain, but Not for captaincy. ”
He said, “Pen has done a good job in a short time, but I think he is not a good choice for a long time.” The good thing for us is that Justin Langer is present as a coach. The option to make different captains in different formats can also be tried. ”
