Australian Cricket Team: One of the darkest chapters on the cricket field is the fact that in 2018 there will be a third Test match between Australia and host South Africa in Cape Town.

At the same time, Smith, every year on Warners. However, another ban was imposed on the two. Cricket Australia banned Smith for two years, lifting Warner’s captaincy.
The ban on Smith is over. It was time for the ban to end, but Smith did not return to the captaincy. But, luckily Kabolu wanted Smith as captain. That is why this happened. Smith returns as captain in the second Test of the ongoing Ashes series. Three years later he returned as captain. Tim Pine, who replaced Smith as captain before the Ashes series, resigned due to controversy. He was replaced by Pat Cummins as captain. Covmins, however, was dropped from the second Test after Kovid became close to the infected man. Smith was re-elected captain.

Cricket Australia, however, handed over the responsibility to Pat Cummins and appointed Steve Smith as vice-captain. As soon as he was appointed vice-captain, no one expected Smith to appear as captain again.
