3 Teams That Should Target Warner In IPL 2022 Auction


As ipl got suspended because of the rising covid cases, now the hype has been created about the warner, whom we saw in his last match of sunrisers warming the bench and serving drinks to other players.
Now the question arises about what incident happened in the camp that lead to that situation of warner. Was he injured? No. So what's the actual reason and you must be thinking why I am saying this because he is the leading run scorer of Hyderabad franchise with scoring 3819 runs, but yet he was warming bench in the last game after being dropped from captaincy.
I personally feel complaining about management's decision after post match conference is the reason that lead to loose his spot in playing 11.This was his words when hosts asks him about the Manish pandey ,why he is not included in the team-
"It was a harsh call in my opinion. But at the end of the day, it is a decision of the selectors to do that," Warner
So now we got know about why he should have been dropped. Even Dale Steyn also expresses his sadness about David Warner in his recent interview to Espn-
“It’s strange that he isn’t a part of the playing eleven. It’s understandable if they want to change ownership of captaincy for the next season, and keep Kane there. But David is still a phenomenal batter and I would still keep him in the eleven. But this might be the last time we see Warner in the Orange Army,” Steyn told ESPNCricinfo.
So steyn indicates that this might be the last season in which we would see Warner in Orange Clothes, further making him available to other franchises that could be a go to deal for other as he is the only foreign player to score above 5000 runs. Following are the franchises that would be interested in him.



This could be the last season of the veteran cricketer Chris Gayle (age 41 years) and chance that Punjab could retain him is very low, thus making a slot for powerful and explosive opener empty . David Warner could be the ideal pick for the franchise like Punjab as they would also wanting their fortunes to turned up from here because David Warner also provides a choice of captaincy and who know he might bring the first cup of Punjab kings Home. Back in 2016,he was the captain of Hyderabad when they won their first ever title. So Punjab could expect same from the Australian. Also losing Chris Gayle can also cause damage to their brand value which can be refurbished after adding the services of David Warner. The Kl-Warner combo can be a dream combo for any franchise and dangerous combo for any opponent adding Warner upfront the order can also give freedom to Kl to play with more agressive behaviour with which he was struggling in recent years.



Trying new captain this season and they have only been digging into the earth's crust since from the start of the season clinching just three wins from seven matches they could also seek to change their captain in next season besides this the problem with their openers also remains intact since 2020 as their opening combination only averages 23 in the matches and making too many changes in their opening slot, also cause for this average. So they must be looking for a fresh start this season by adding Warner services .They could provide boost to their opening combination and also Warner as a captain can end their loosing streak since inaugural IPL season. Butler and Warner could be their go to openers in the upcoming IPL editions. And it could also solve their problem of trying plenty in opening slot.



One of the most successful franchises in the captaincy of Gautam Gambhir has now subsequently became the table bottomer of the IPL seasons since from then. They have to turns things whole around to make a comeback in IPL 2022 . Their problems started in IPL after the Gautam Gambhir's era with the captaincy firstly trying DK as a captain then Morgan but they both didn't help much KKR in their outcomes. Since from then KKR is finding his captain to change their fortunes. Their search could end upon David Warner as a captain. They tried this year Morgan as a captain but this formula has been failed immensely as KKR was struggling to find a form in IPL 2021.David Warner could be the first choice captain of Kolkata's Management.
Along with captaincy problem this year they also suffered from the top order failure as their top order were struggling to get runs. They only have uncapped players in their top three so not much of experience there because of which they could be tempted to bring some experience up there in top order in form of David Warner. This reason would also force KKR management to pick him ahead of anyone else.
